This quaint and perched village of Opio, in the middle of a marvellous
Mediterranean environment, with olive trees, pines, cork oaks, arbutus
trees and a protected natural environment. Thanks to an exceptional
micro-climate, roses and jasmine are cultivated here for the Grasse
perfume industry, while the Grande Bastide olive grove, produces a
delicious olive oil, one of the few such mills still operating in the
region, dating back to the 15th century. Opio has a long history with
several remains from the Roman period. A peaceful setting, perfect for
long walks or horse-riding in the midst of 450 hectares of forest.
Golfers can combine business with pleasure: the Bégude golf course
premises are located in a former château dating back to the 19th
century, built on medieval foundations.
