the city of sandstone

Annot spreads its houses at the foot of the natural site of sandstone and its cliffs. The cultivation terraces and shelters under rocks mixed with stone blocks invite you to take a walk. If you are a hiking or climbing enthusiast, your playground is at the end of the street. As for gourmets, our specialities will awaken your taste buds.

and its surroundings

Sweetness of life

of a City of character

A medieval heart with a lacis of nicely paved alleys. And everywhere, the music of the water from the canals and fountains accompanies you. Old shops, engraved door lintels, corbelled houses, watchtowers and from time to time, a small square flooded with the sun or in the shade of the ramparts… Stroll in the ancient centre of this city of character with nonchalant elegance, it will reveal all its secrets.

The chapel of Vers-la-Ville, in the heart of the sandstone

From its sandstone cocoon, the chapel of Vers-la-Ville opens onto the village. Along its access path, the cultivation terraces follow one another. Large blocks appear at every turn. And these houses leaning against the rock or directly built on a rock… amazing!

To extend the discovery, opt for the most emblematic of the hikes: the Grès d’Annot trail
