The multi-coloured Saint Pons forest
Automn is certainly the best season to fully enjoy the woody little valley in Parc de Saint Pons; a great mixity of beech, hornbeam, ash and maple trees grow there, quite uncommon trees in low Provence and on the Côte d’Azur at this altitude and such a southern latitude. Among the other highlights set in these beautiful surroundings, you will see an old watermill fed by the Fauge stream, the ruins of a 13C Cistercian abbey, and, further upstream, the Gour de l’Oule, a lovely fall.
