    Description :

    “The ruins are medieval and hark back from a time when defence was important. It marks the site where the village of Chateauneuf-Villevieille re-sited from its Ligurians and Roman place of origin in the 6th Century. It was also the home for many of the counts of Nice. There is no natural source of water and would be gradually abandoned in favour of the former site of Villevieille, following the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle.”
