A young village with dreamlike panoramas

A few kilometers from Menton and Sospel, the village of Castillon is one of the newest villages in France.

Originally built in 1157 on the Col de Castillon, it has been destroyed and rebuilt several times and has occupied its current location only since 1951.

Located between the sea and the mountains, this area of mid-sized mountains has an atypical atmosphere.

The Provencal architecture of stone houses with green shutters is in perfect harmony with modern architecture such as Les Arcades du Serre (The Arcades of the Greenhouse). Together they form a charming village that inspires many artists and craftsmen.

As for sports, Castillon will attract more than one visitor with its climbing wall and numerous steep paths through the mountain, ideal for discovering many beautiful views.
