Following the way down from the mountains in the “Var” department (see other locations of “Bargeme” and “Mons”) here’s is the 3rd place to visit in the area.

Fayence is much bigger than Bargeme or Mons. It is in fact the main city of the area, even if there are only 4000 people. And it’s not located so high in the mountains, just 300meers high. So you don’t have there the same amazing viewpoint as in the previous ones, but you still have a very nice typical and charming old medieval city to visit.

The city was founded by the Romans who called it “Favienta Loca”, that means literally “nice place” and it’s true that it’s a place where you like to stay. It’s a perfect place to spend some holidays (in summer for example…) if you want to have some nature trips in the whole area (and there are really beautiful spots to visit), to enjoy the calm of a little charming city, and even if you want to go to a “big one” like Nice or Cannes, you are not so far away from the coastal highway to reach these cities…

Well, if you’re in Fayence, take your time to walk through the narrow streets of the old city and enjoy the charms of it! :)
