Le Mas nestles at 2,950 feet above sea level, between two mountain ranges. The fresh air and southern exposure make it a delightful place to visit, where you can enjoy many walks, hikes, and the refreshing charm of the Gironde River, once vital to the village’s economy.
History and heritage are also in abundance: Roman vestiges, a Romanesque church, many wayside chapels, along with a castle and the ruins of a keep, all testaments to a very busy medieval life, as Le Mas was on the border between the counties of Provence and Nice.
Two hamlets are attached to Le Mas, Les Sausses and Les Tardons.
