ROQUEBRUNE SUR ARGENS :
VILLAGE DE CARACTERE
Once upon a time, there was a medieval village…
Discover the history of this amazing thousand year-old village overlooked by its famous red rock - the “Rocher”. It all begins around the year 1,000 AD, with the establishment of a fortification known as : the Castrum. Later the village grows with the development of the rue des Portiques, full of picturesque houses and arcades, clustered around the elegant bell tower and parish church.

The Argens River

Classified one of the 7 Wonders of Provence by Figaro Magazine in 2015, the Argens is one of the most beautiful wild sites on the Côte d’Azur! Here you are in Provence, in the Var Department, close to the beaches and major tourism sites – and yet the countryside you’ll be in offers a spectacle of nature. The lush green vegetation, calm waters, hills and cliffs offer a haven of biodiversity where you might come across a Kingfisher, a European Bee-eater or even a turtle!
