Saint-Auban

Saint-Auban is a small, ancient village built in terraced formation at the foot of the immense rocky ridge known as Le Rocher de Tracastel. To this day, the village has preserved traces of its Gallo-Roman past: the castle ruins show that the village was a strategically positioned settlement. Fall under the spell of the shady banks of Saint-Auban’s charming little lakes and the verdant plains surrounding the village.
