This short walk on the village’s heights which is overlooked by the Sainte Marthe chapel is a good meeting point with the Monges massif. Marked by both its mountain and Provençal greenery, it offers beautiful views on the surrounding summits.


  1. From the parking lot, follow the road heading to the GR 6 markings. Passing near the Monges gite, walk through the alleys ending up at the town hall. At the “Place de la Fontaine” signpost, go up on the road in front of you leading to the chapel.
  2. In the rise, quickly bend onto the path on your right. Behind the chapel, follow the track. At the junction with the road, go down on your right – the path is like a zigzag - and reach the parking lot.
Departure : At the village exit in front of the gite in Auhton.
Arrival : At the village exit in front of the gite in Auhton.
