Located in the Blanche valley 1,260 metres above sea level, the welcoming little town of Seyne is a designated "Cité de Caractère" (fortified town of character) and "Station Verte" (nature-orientated holiday resort) enjoying a pleasant, unspoiled natural environment.
Overlooked by Fort Vauban and a medieval watchtower, the historic district makes a picturesque scene. With its typical streets, half-timbered houses, dated doorways, ramparts and Romanesque church, it is a lovely place to wander around.
Famous for its tradition of mule breeding, Seyne honours this sturdy and patient animal every year in a mule competition held during the town's annual festival on the second Saturday in August. In addition to this animated event, a horse and cattle fair takes place every second Saturday in October.
