Castellane itself, at only 1.5km away, begs to be explored. It is a wonderful medieval town with a fine square, narrowing streets and the terrace of the towering Notre Dame du Roc from which to admire the whole town.
Sweet smell in the air? You are so close to the birthplace of perfume in Grasse it would be a shame not to explore the craft. At Parfumerie Galimard you can visit the museum of perfumes, go on a guided visit and even make your own perfume.
Explore a world underground at Grottes de Baume Obscure, 70 metres below the surface. It is a great activity wandering over 700 metres of paths through a series of spectacular caves and experiencing a sensory journey with dancing lights and original scores.
