Starting point: Leave the village by taking the street named Rue du Docteur Aubin, located just behind the church.
At trail marker #10, on a small terrace at the end of Rue du Docteur Aubin, walk downhill towards the Siagne River following the red-and-white trail markings of the GR 510 trail.
The trail crosses terraced land with olive groves that have been more or less abandoned. This path leads to the Font d´Amic (the village’s old washhouse about 10 yards from the GR trail), at trail marker #9.
Leave the GR to take the Pont des Tuves trail at trail marker 46, following the yellow markings downhill.
Cross the Siagne canal, which carries the waters of the Siagne River to Grasse and Cannes, and continue downhill. You will pass near the ruins of a mill, arriving at a waterfall that must be crossed.
You then arrive at the Pont des Tuves bridge. Cross it and continue following the yellow trail markings. The path goes around a laune (a wider pool in the river), offering a view of the village. Follow the trail markings carefully, because many paths lead to the river.
The path moves away from the river to avoid the Tour de Siagne tower. Follow the horizontal path along an old water supply channel. You then go past the ruins of an old paper mill before arriving at the Pont des Moulins.
Return to the village on the uphill path that was once the main trail from Saint Cézaire to Callian. You return to the paved road a few yards before a bend in the Route de Mons downhill from the village. Follow the trail markings, which lead you off the main road to return to the village through the former Saint Ferréol gate, following trail marker #20.
