A historic estate

Located between the communes of Tourtour and Aups, the Château de Taurenne is today a majestic building dedicated to the agricultural exploitation of the olive tree, a true Mediterranean and Provencal monument.
This building is one of the most beautiful and prestigious monuments in the Var region dating from the Middle Ages. The Château de Taurenne was built in the 12th century on its promontory as if to better observe the surrounding valley. Garrigue, pine and oak woods give the castle its marvellous character. However, it is characterised by the numerous olive trees surrounding it.
