Terre des Lacs is the eco-parc eco-touristic of the community of Saint-Auban. At the foot of the village of Saint-Auban, at the top of the grassy country, at less than one hour drive from Grasse, our park welcomes you summer and winter alike and proposes you stay in accordance with the nature.
The Parc Naturel Régional (PNR) des Préalpes d’Azur is a regional natural park extending broadly through the Grasse backcountry and well into the foothills of the Alps in the Alpes-Maritimes department. It is a rural, but inhabited territory, a living and dynamic territory, one that is delicately balanced and united by a common objective.
The Grotte de Saint-Cézaire, a wondrous cave complex, are just 15 minutes from the city of Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. The guided tour, with commentary in both French and English, takes place 40m underground, on a 200m long pathway, accessible by all the family.
At a constant year round temperature of 15°C (59°F), we recommend bring a pullover or jacket, as well as walking shoes or sneakers, as the floor of the cave is damp and can be slippery.

A 700-hectare natural preserve dedicated wholly to wildlife
The Monts d’Azur Biological Reserve is in the town of Thorenc in the Alpes-Maritimes, 40 minutes from Grasse, and encompasses a mosaic of surprising and fascinating environments, from rocky cliffs to verdant, grassy plains to remarkable woodlands.
THE KINGDOM OF SHADOWS AND LIGHT
In a beautiful, preserved natural setting dotted with grazing goats and sheep, in the midst of a vast, wooded limestone plateau overlooking the gorges of the Haute Siagne, one of Mother Nature’s jewels has remained hidden for millennia, sixty meters below the surface: the caves known as the Grotte de Baume Obscure.
