Here we post photos of Montauroux

Montauroux is a small Var village just north of the Lac de St Cassien. It's a perched village, but nestled into the trees so that it's not easily visible from the exterior, except from the neighboring perched villages just to the west. The geographical situation is great: to the south, in addition to the Lac St Cassien, are the wooded hills of the Esterel and the Massif du Tanneron; to the north ("behind" the village) are more wooded hills, with the Borges de la Siagne running down from Mons.

The village center isn't very big, so it doesn't take long to explore the narrow streets of the old town [ photo-6 ]. The village center has the normal collection of shops and terrace cafés, and the main square (Place du Clos) is a good place for some local shopping and relaxing.

The village "lavoir" is nicely refurbished, located directly beneath the Place du Clos. The road into the village passes directly in front of the lavoir [ photo-3 ] before the final hairpin into the center.

Montauroux has a lot of lovely old stone fountains. We photographed several, and it's worth a wander around the old village just to discover them [ photo-8 ].

The ancient village church (17th century) [14th century ???] at the top of the village sometimes has evening concerts: classical, medieval, etc. The square tower [ photo-5 ] is 16th-c, with an 18th-c campanile on top. The Hotel-de-ville (town hall) in the center is topped with a 19th-c campanile.

After visiting Mons we went to Montauroux where we had a pizza at the main square. When we arrived there was some kind of boule tournament on the square.
