Montauroux is one of nine perched villages that form the Pays de Fayence. It sits on a hill in the east of the Var department. The geographical position is stunning, with the Massif de l'Estérel, Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. Monaco and Nice are an easy drive away. Just across a valley to the north-west is Callian, another of the Pays de Fayence villages that is worth visiting. In fact, a tour of all nine villages makes a great day out.
