This place is a peaceful and quiet haven with a beautiful view over the area. Do not miss a visit if you are in Cotignac or the Var. I am not religious........but I always enjoy coming here.

Calm amongst the tourist village of Cotignac. A room is set aside to tell the history of the Sanctuary. There are great walks in the Forest and it is possible to get a drink and visit the shop.
