Follow the Calade trail and plunge into the heart of the Massif des Maures.

Cooling off

This trail, just like the Vallon du Pont des Fées and the Pierredon trails, take you along the River Garde and you’ll be able to admire the old aqueduct that supplied water to the village.

In spring, there’s nothing more pleasant than to roll up your trousers and dip your feet in the running water. The current is soothing and cools you down too…


The Massif des Maures changes through the seasons, with leaves and flowers that come and go on the trees but, all year round, the overall picture is green and the walking is pleasant.


Along the trail, wild grasses and nature herself take every opportunity to exploit the sun and rain. Every season to its flowers, every moment to its joys.

La Calade trail

For this trail, follow the orange markers. When you come to a footbridge, continue straight on for a few hundred metres until you come across the Calade path, on your right. This used to be called the ‘calado’ which is Provençal for ‘cobbled track’.
