Barjols - a village of water

The picturesque village of Barjols is found in the beautiful department of the Var, in the region of Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur in the south-east of France. Like many mediaeval towns in this area, Barjols is built on a hill, with the remains of an old chateau on the top. Barjols is best known for its water... with many lovely fountains, a water wheel, waterfalls and rivers and streams in and around the village. Several old lavoirs, or wash houses, can still be seen around the village.

Sights and attractions

Barjols is a very attractive old village, and retains many of its original features. The fountains and waterwheel are the most famous, but the village has plenty of other interesting buildings and monuments to discover as well as its water. The lovely Collegial Church of Notre Dame de l'Assomption dates back to 1014, and has been well maintained throughout the centuries. The work that has been done to maintain this building is evidenced in its mixture of Romanesque, Gothic and Byzantine styles of architecture.

Ancient, authentic and atmospheric

The hilltop chateau is sadly not in such a good state of repair, with little remaining beyond the original defensive walls. The ancient streets and houses are authentic and atmospheric however, and the climb to the top of the hill is worth making even though there isn't much left of the chateau that once graced it. The route takes you past a number of fountains, waterfalls and the remaining water wheel, and eventually offers a fantastic view of the town and its surrounding Provençal countryside.

Village life in Barjols

The village is made up of a network of narrow streets and small squares, and it is in two of these squares that a traditional street market sets up twice a week, providing a colourful and absorbing shopping experience in true French country style. Barjols also has a good selection of other shops, and of particular note are the art studios and shops which have taken over the old tannery buildings to crate a Zone d'Art.

Wining and dining

The village has a selection of bars, cafés and restaurants, but for more choice if dining out there are many excellent restaurants and hotels not too far away. Provençal food is acclaimed throughout the world, and traditional local products such as olive oil, wines and Mediterranean vegetables are all on offer at the markets and in local shops.

Out and about

The department of the Var lies in one of France's most beautiful areas, and the countryside around the village of Barjols is stunning. All the glories of Provence can be seen as you drive around the locality, with lavender fields, vineyards, olive groves and the wild, aromatic garrigue grasslands.
