This town divided into two parts - on the left bank of the Esteron river, the large town of Roquesteron, and on the right bank, just opposite, Roquesteron - Grasse (now La Roque en Provence) - is fortunate to be crossed by this pretty pale green river which will delight fishermen and lovers of tonic (not to say cold) swimming.
Roquesteron, under the exterior of an unpretentious village-street with its café and its square for bowlers shaded by plane trees, will reserve you a sublime surprise, as long as you have the curiosity to go down a few stairs and walk through these alleys which sometimes lead to an abandoned courtyard overgrown with weeds but also on a flowery plot.
Even if the village is uneven and not always in good condition, you will make an astonishing journey into the past by crossing these numerous covered passages, discovering a lintel dated 1767 or a fountain from 1779!
Charming trails will take you to discover the impressive clues of Aiglun and Riolan, you will pass by pretty country chapels hidden by generous vegetation.
Hikers will be able to follow the GR510 which connects Saint Cézaire to Sospel, the bravest who have been able to reach the summit of Cheiron (1,777m) will be rewarded for their efforts by the sublime panorama offered on the French Riviera and the Alps.
