Randonnée de Vence à Saint-Paul de Vence à travers les bois de la Sine.
Starting from the Place du Grand Jardin, take the Avenue de la Résistance to the Place Maréchal Juin. Turn left, take the Boulevard Emmanuel Maurel (along the car park), walk to the Sainte Anne Chapel, which is located on the right, at the corner of the Chemin du Baric. Go straight down this road until you reach the small bridge on the Malvan.
After the stream , climb through the woods of la Sine area ; here the path has regained its paving. You are on the Chemin des Messugues. On your left hand side, there is another path, the Chemin des Cades, it is more direct but also steeper. These two roads connect the tarmacced road of la Sine which you take on your left. After a pleasant walk on this road edged by pine trees and holm oaks, a road sign will make you leave the road in order to take your left on the path of the water-course.
This water-course carries to Saint Paul, the water from the source of the Malvan, near the castle of that name, better known as the château de la Reine Jeanne. According to popular tradition, in the XIVth century , Jeanne Queen of Naples granted a right to this water to the people of St Paul, the spring-head being on her lands. This channel even today supplies several fountains in the village. Walking among the trees and plants alongside the path, you will discover the village of Saint Paul. On the left, the road ends with a mill whose wheel was formerly turned by the water of the channel.
From 01/01 to 31/12.
Closed exceptionally on January 1st and December 25th.
