Gattieres village is only a 20 minute drive from the major
attractions on the riviera seafront. It is a lively French
Provencial village, full of character and animation dating back to
Medieval times, and evidence of this period is in every village
street. One of the local rituals is to walk up to the village in the
morning and sit with a cup of steamy frothy coffee and a croissant,
watching the locals greeting each other with kisses flying

During the month of July, there is an open air professional youth
opera performed in the village square. All the costumes are made by
