Saint-Julien le Montagnier

The village

At the northern limit of Green Provence, near the lower Verdon gorges, this village, perched on an isolated hillock, provides a fine view over a series of rocky plateaus covered in garrigue. Fields of grapes, cereals, lavender and olives bring this changing landscape different colours in each season.

The windmills

These emblematic 17th century buildings, one with sails and the other without, alongside a pretty chapel, make this a site well worth visiting. It is as if you were back in the times of Master Cornille in Alphonse Daudet’s work Letters from My Windmill.

Viewpoint indicator

Near the water tower, the ceramic viewpoint indicator introduces an exceptional panorama, in clear weather, of course, over seven departments.

Saint-Julien beach

Just before arriving at Gréoux-les-Bains, a little winding road takes you to Saint-Julien beach, a magical spot, preserved from the crowds and construction. Small restaurants and rental boats await you in this spot, recalling some of the idyllic beaches next to the sea. This is Lake Esparron du Verdon.
