Individual trips to Puget-Théniers and Touët/Var

Touët/Var

Puget-Théniers was a fortified Roman village in medieval times and a sub-prefecture until 1926. It has kept several masterpieces from its prestigious past: carved Renaissance doors line its shady streets, which are also home to a bronze statue by Maillol.

Touët-sur-Var is a timeless hillside village, where the centuries-old houses have stone foundations and ochre roofs.
