Natural park of Vaugrenier

The green lung of the Côte d'Azur coastline

Just a few steps from the sea, the Vaugrenier Nature Park is a 102-hectare protected site with large meadows and play areas for the public: it is a huge garden for the people of the Côte d'Azur and holidaymakers.

As early as the 7th century B.C., the Romans were seduced by this site and settled there. Archaeological excavations in the 1970s uncovered ancient remains (farm and objects) and a temple dedicated to Mercury. There are still traces of the Aurelia road.

Beautiful mixed forests shelter animals and a rich Mediterranean vegetation (umbrella pine and Mediterranean pine, holm oak and cork oak, undergrowth shrubs). A must-see thanks to two observatories, its natural freshwater coastal pond which reveals an exceptional biotope.

It is the ideal place to relax, to play with your friends, to do outdoor sports, to have a picnic with your family... and of course to take advantage of the walking trails in the woods.
