Le Mas

Alpes Maritimes Departement - Population : 158 inh.

puce 54 km from Grasse on the RN 85, then the D5, then 7 km after Thorenc, the D10 on the right.

Le Mas, le village Le Mas seems lost, at the very end of the habitable world.
To get there, you must arm yourself with patience, courage and not be subject to vertigo, as the road that leads there coming from Roquesteron is tiny and rugged - you do not always meet there with two cars, drive carefully.
Le Mas, tiny street
But once there, what a reward to be able to admire this tiny village perched like a sentinel on a hill overlooking the Esteron valley.
Wonderfully facing south, made up of just a few old stone houses, set in totally unspoiled nature (2400 hectares of forest), it is hard to imagine today the 700 inhabitants who populated the Mas before the 1914 war!
Le Mas, chapel
Seigniory of medieval origin, Le Mas was also a land of the Grimaldi de Beuil then of the Grasse-Bar who erected a fortified castle in the 15th century, of which there are still some vestiges.
What a pleasure to stroll through its narrow streets breathing in an air of absolute purity, and to greet the locals who take the fresh air on their doorsteps.
With a little luck, the superb Romanesque church will be open and you will be able to contemplate the 900-year-old baptismal font there.
Le Mas, landscape
Built by the monks of the Lerins island n the 12th century, it still dominates the village of Le Mas, which can also be proud of having seen the birth of the grandfather of Raimu's grandfather (Jules Muraire)... on May 14, 1726.
At Le Mas, you will find paradise lost, nature still in its natural state - so far (and yet so close) to civilization!
