Monte Carlo Walking & Talking Group


Circuit du Castellet/departing from Saint-Jeannet. Parking at the entrance of the village Chemin de la Touraque (??? not quite sure, please check)
Saint Jeannet. From A8 motorway, back to St. Jeannet from the output of Cagnes-sur-Mer via RD.218 or that of St-Laurent-du-Var via RD.118. Parking on the entrance parking (free) downstream of villa

In the chain of "baous" the Saint-Jeannet is distinguished by the exceptional size of its limestone face well known to all the climbers of the hexagon with the quality and level of its climbing routes. The assembly formed by the baou and the village of Saint-Jeannet perfectly symbolizes all Provencal art to best integrate the building into its natural environment as well as arriving at the site in the admiring during circuit, it will be captivated by this harmony between nature and the work of man. Heirs of an ancient pastoralism, ancient stone huts or cross sheep along the way as they are based in a landscape of scrub and oak interspersed with sinkholes and where there lapiés mineral element with the usual white-gray limestone karst plateaus . Dominant proudly Valley Cagne, the dungeon and the walls of Castellet, fortified house (XIV), complete their inexorable decline that began in the tragic battle of 1944.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
