Capital of the Moors!
You arrive in Collobrières by the scenic roads of the Massif des Maures which meander through the chestnut and oak trees or by the main road which twists along the river and is lined with the vines of the area classified as AOC Côtes de Provence.
This “village of character” is nestled in a bend of the river “Real Collobrier”. Collobrières has preserved its architectural heritage and authenticity: cobbled streets, religious buildings, historical monuments, fountains and shady squares … a walkable village.
Collobrières won its 2nd flower in a competition of flowered villages for the quality and management of public spaces and the value of its heritage.
Did you know?
Hence the common name comes?
The name Collobrières comes from Provence “coulòbri” which means “snake,” and refers to the sinuous meanders of the river ‘Real Collobrier’ (and its inhabitants).
