Les Arcs community forest

Eye catching sceneries, wild and bucolic, have been sculpted by two flowing streams : The Argens and the Aille River.

Les Arcs sur Argens village stands at the crossroads between the Mediterranean sea and the Var hinterland.

Located in the southern part of the community forest, one noticeable hiking trail unveils a rich natural environment and a remarkable archeological heritage. Ancient dwellings are scattered all along the waymarked trail. From the starting point, you can admire eyecatching sceneries. At la Mescla, the junction of the Aille and Argens rivers, you get a dazzling view on the so called « Eiffel Bridge », owing its name to the construction method used for the Eiffel tower.

You can either head torwards the Apié de Raybaud hiking trail or you can choose to carry on the tarred road up to the captured source « Font de Catin » and the Menhir des Terriers hiking trail. You will go backwards through time and come across the former barite mine « les Porres », the old pitch oven and a 5000-years-old dolmen. Several celto ligurian oppida are still visible : slate fragments, « tegulae » i.e. flat slates found at Bauquieres farm are the historic testimony of this ancient period.

Castel Diou summit, the highest in Les Arcs sur Argens, culminates at an altitude of 353 meters and offers a stunning 360° panoramic view

Beware !

Driven hunting is scheduled from September to March. Early hunting happens in August : you must get aware of prefectural decrees and the fire risk map for the Var region.
