Small agricultural village, Châteauvieux offers a panoramic view of the sublime pre-Alpine landscapes and the highest peak of the Var, Mount Lachens (1714m)

In the high Var country, in a landscape of mountains and small valleys, this small farming village offers wonderful pre-Alpine landscapes. At the bottom of the village, the blue of the small lake contrasts with the golden yellow of the fields and the dark green of the mountain. Above the village, in the forest, the small chapel Saint-Pierre seems out of time. Built on the site of a 12th century Cistercian abbey, the Saint-Pierre is celebrated with dignity every year. Châteauvieux is also the starting point for many hikes. Don't miss the Cheese Festival in May.
