A small village in the Grasse pre-Alps, Escragnolles is the perfect place for lovers of peace and beautiful nature. It will be a paradise for fishermen thanks to the many streams and springs in the town and its surroundings.
Also a privileged place for the search for fossils, the village is located below the Napoleon road, on the side of hills, in the middle of poplars and cherry trees: a main street made up of gray houses brightened up with blue-lavender shutters, and some beautiful stone facades, remarkable low doors more than a hundred years old (one of them dates from 1700!), a small square shaded by lime trees where a large church sits.
If the village is modest, you will envy the happy owners of a pretty garden, flowered with roses or climbing vines, where it must be such a good lunch or simply to take the fresh air on summer evenings!
