Vallée du Val de Chalvagne

Val de Chalvagne

Castellet-Saint-Cassien, Montblanc, Villevieille and the hamlet of Le Champ now form the commune of Val-de-Chalvagne, named after the river that runs through it. A wild and secret valley to discover!

L'eglise de Castellet-Saint-Cassien


A striking 17th-century château once owned by the Lords of Glandèves.

All the decorations are in gypsum, including the central staircase and a monumental fireplace.

A pretty avenue of lime trees, a vast meadow and a boulodrome make an ideal place to spend a pleasant moment.

The town hall is located next to the church.

Chapelle antique Romaine

A peaceful moment in Villevielle

Small hamlet with pretty stone houses, surrounded by vast fields. In summer, many families come to spend their vacations here, and the square comes alive with the laughter of children and late-night pétanque games.

Time stands still as you climb towards the Saint-Nicolas chapel, with its panoramic view of the surrounding peaks and the
Entrevaux Citadel
at the bottom of the valley. Depart from the village square, allow 40 minutes for the round trip.

In ancient times, the Romans populated the Villevieille area and in the 12th century, a monastery existed, of which unfortunately no trace remains today.
