A peaceful rural village where provençal style and a good
life is every day fare. There are many excellent shops and fine
restaurants that enable the visitor to experience the provençal
way of life. Few villages have such rich and detailed archives as
Flayosc including beautiful parchments and irreplaceable documents
on domestic and economic life over the centuries. The village’s
former thriving shoe-making industry and its 5 workshops, which
finally closed down in the 1960's are well documented.
Due to its geographical location, Flayosc, which is in the Upper
Var region and the Verdon Grand Canyon, does not resemble either
the usual Riviera villages, or the nearby, more arid mountain villages.
Many of the tourists who come here choose it as their permanent
residence, for the tranquillity and quality of life it offers. It
is also a very dynamic village, offering a whole range of activities
rarely found elsewhere. Here, culture is omnipresent.
The Bureau de Tourisme et d'Animation Rurale manages around 30
different clubs and societies totalling 400 members. Flayosc also
has its own library and organises street theatre events, concerts
and film showings. Summer is the ideal time to enjoy the many traditional
celebrations, such as the "Fête de Saint-Laurent"
in early August and the Arts & Crafts Fair. Bric-a-brac markets
also take place on the 4th Sunday of each month from May to October.
