Coursegoules, the village
At the foot of the Cheiron range, Coursegoules is a very beautiful village, harmonious and chic, which presents a superb architectural unity, most of its houses, of medieval origin, being built in the stone of the region of a slightly gray iridescent and topped with Roman tiles.
Coursegoules, houses
Formerly fortified, Coursegoules retains some vestiges of fortifications - ramparts and gate - which gives it character. As well as a majestic Romanesque church and an even older chapel.
Coursegoules, facade
Lovers of old stones will love this very lively, flowery and maintained village, where they can, while taking a breath of fresh air, discover the many traces of a rich medieval past:
- maze of stairways, doors surmounted by sculpted lintels,
- which often indicated the title of stately home
- porches and vaults, fountain from the last century, historic sheepfolds still in good condition, mill built by the Templars, not forgetting a little marvel like the residence of Diane de Poitiers (18th century).
Coursegoules, vaulted passageway
An exciting, invigorating walk, which can end gently in one of the charming little restaurants on the terrace, which all have at least one panoramic view of the majestic Cheiron mountain.
