Sollies-Ville, church Square
The bell tower of his church stands proudly like a sentry with the houses of the village nestled around him.

Contrary to what its name suggests, Sollies-Ville is not a city but a charming little village. Originally, Sollies-Ville formed a single territory with the municipalities of Sollies-Toucas (4 km), Sollies-Pont (2 km) and La Farlede (2 km) formerly known as Sollies-Farlede.



Sollies-Ville, fountain
It was in the 16th century that little by little the inhabitants of Sollies-Ville descended to settle near the fertile banks of the Gapeau river and regrouped in small hamlets: Sollies-Pont (which had several bridges), Sollies-Toucas (where the Tocasso brothers lived) and Sollies Farlede (farlede means fennel in provencal).

It was in 1799 that the town was divided into four separate villages.
