It can be found in a ‘protected’ site in the middle of a stunning Mediterranean environment that boasts olive and arbutus trees, pines and heather, the perfect environment to find a house to relocate or retire too.
The peaceful setting lends itself to long walks or horse riding within the 450 hectares of forest. Sites include the St Trophisme church, with its tall square clocktower, that dates back to 12th century and also the remains of the medieval monastery in the Poudeirac quarter.
The exceptional microclimate is utilised to grow roses and jasmine for the Grasse perfume industry and also the manufacture of local olive oil from the olive grove called the Grande Bastide.
