Castellane Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Castellane lies in a cirque of mountains half-way between Digne and Grasse. Whether arriving from Cannes on the Route Napoléon or from the Haut Verdon, it is impossible not to be impressed by the sight of the small town lying at the foot of a 184m-high cliff. The striking setting adds colour to the narrow streets and squares of this Provençal town. Whether you prefer to soak up the ambiance of the busy Place Marcel-Sauvaire or are more energetically inclined (walking, horse riding, wind-surfing, rafting), the region has something for everyone.
