Made up of 9 villages perched on the foothills of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence (Fayence, Callian, Mons, Tourrettes, Tanneron, Montauroux, Saint-Paul-en-Foret, Seillans and Bagnols), the Pays de Fayence is a unique location. Explore these charming villages one by one from your holiday accommodation in the Pays de Fayence, taste the local cuisine (honey, fougasse...) and admire the cultural gems of the region.
From your holiday rental in Tourrettes, set off to explore Bagnols-en-Foret, with the lush canyon of the Blavet Gorges, its chapels and the Oppidum de la Forteresse. Then head for Saint-Paul-en-Foret, with its picturesque cafes and Rioutard lake. Don’t miss Tanneron, with its mimosa scented promenade; or Montauroux, with its street parties, church and Saint Barthelemy chapel.
Admire the panoramic views out over the Esterel and the Tanneron massif, right next door to your holiday rental in Callian. Discover Fayence and the Four du Mitan, the gliding centre and Sarrasine Door. Round off your stay with a trip through Seillans, one of the most beautiful villages in France, and Mons, from where you can see as far as Corsica.

In Montauroux, the Saint-Barthélemy chapel belonged to the heritage of Christian Dior.
He bequeathed it to the town of Montauroux, himself living in the Château de la Colle Noire which he had restored, creating a garden of his favorite flowers, as well as a pond at the foot of the building. He died before seeing the end of the work. He is buried in the Callian cemetery.
It is an artificial lake of 40 km that allows the practice of many activities, especially for children: swimming, pedal boat, sailing, kayaking, paddle, diving. It is ideal for spending a day in the middle of nature while enjoying the pleasures of the seaside.
On Tuesday morning, in Montauroux, the market is as big as the one in Fayence. To buy some souvenirs, don't hesitate to go to the Maison du Lac in Tanneron, you will find products that will not be sold on the markets: these are products put on sale by producers who have no other outlets. It will even be an opportunity for you to meet some of them, to visit their farms (wineries) and test the products.
