Waterfalls · Hiking Trails
Barjols is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.At the gateway to Haute Provence and the hills of Var, near the Verdon gorges and the Lake of St. Croix, this peaceful village, set on a limestone cliff, is an inviting stop for visitors.A refreshing place with 42 man made fountains, Barjols' architecture and life have been determined for centuries by the omnipresence of water.Its rich past is shown clearly in the 11th century Collegiate Church, the Fountain Trail, the Regional Water Museum, the Carmes waterfall, the Fête des Tripettes, and the leather fair. Indeed, it is leather that was the mainstay of the village until just a few decades ago when production moved to emerging economies and economic decline set in.Because of this more recent industrial past Barjols didn't develop into a big tourist destination and so has kept many features and characters of French village life.In town you will be able to find everything you need, from the tourist office, hotels, restaurants, gites, chambres d'hotes, a swimming pool, municipal tennis courts, large areas for playing petanque (French bowls), and lots of shady café terraces.As Barjols is the hub for surrounding villages it also offers several bakeries, butchers, small and large stores, hairdressers etc. not to mention a good selection of cafés and restaurants..Also worthy of sampling is the local wine. From vineyards just outside the village to a wine shop next to the tourist office in the center.What to seeThe Collegiate Church of Notre Dame de I'Assomption,Portal of PontevesRegional Water Museum The fountains Vineyards
