Mane - Tourism in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

In the rolling hills of the Pays du Forcalquier area, between the Luberon and Lure mountain, lies the delightful village of Mane. A fortified "Cité de Caractère" dominated by its 12-century medieval citadel, Mane is as pretty as a picture with its picturesque, steep, cobbled lanes, mansions and beautiful stone houses. It also offers a magnificent panoramic view from around the citadel over the roofs of the village and surrounding Provence countryside.

At one end of the village nestle two more architectural gems: the 12th-century Romanesque Notre-Dame de Salagon priory and the 18th-century Château de Sauvan. The priory, a listed historic monument, houses the Haute-Provence departmental museum of ethnology, with permanent and temporary exhibitions, and possesses an ethnobotanical garden. The château, located not far from the priory, is known as the "Petit Trianon of Provence". Its grounds feature a French-style formal garden, while the superb classical building contains beautiful furnished rooms.
