Visit Saint-Cezaire-sur-Siagne (Provence, France)
Saint-Cezaire-sur-Siagne is situated to the south-west of Grasse and to the east of the villages of the Pays de Fayence region (eg Mons), at the extreme west of the Alpes-Maritimes department of Provence.
More substantial that many of the small villages in the region, the first thing that strikes you as you approach St-Cezaire-sur-Siagne is its fine position, along the top of a rocky ledge (or rather, a rocky clifftop...) from where it has commanding views across the valley of the River Siagne far below.
The village centres around an open square with a church, a fountain, and several cafes (the annual village get-together was taking place the day I visited so it was very busy and bositerous, I think it will usually be a bit calmer!)
Not far behind the church is a pretty chapel with a bell in the front facade - the Chapelle Romane Notre Dame de Sardaigne - that dates from the 12th century and contains a Roman sarcophagus. Other highlights in St Cezaire include some artefacts from the 19th century, such as a lavoir and some interesting stone-capped wells.
The heart of the old town of Saint-Cezaire-sur-Siagne is around the 'promontory, with some picturesque streets leading to a small open area which acts as a viewpoint on the valley below and miles of open countryside.
Close to the village are some caves - the Grottes de Saint Cézaire - that are open to the public.
