Description

Climb aboard the historic Train des Pignes and travel across Haute-Provence to see beautiful and varied landscapes!

Travelers will board century old train cars which are attached to an authentic steam locomotive that has been classified as a historic monument! Once everyone is onboard, the Train des Pignes will take you to Comté de Nice, the country of olives, and to Haute-Provence, the country of chestnuts.

During this charming trip, the train will pass through the authentic border town of Entrevaux with its medieval citadel and ramparts which were reviewed by Vauban. The train will stop in Annot, an old town in Le Grès where travelers can eat lunch and have a stroll around, before boarding to return to Puget-Théniers.
