Chateauneuf de Grasse is a village listed in the inventory of historic sites in the Alpes-Maritimes. Built on a hill 417 m above sea level, the village is overlooking the plain of Opio and offers a beautiful view up the bay of Cannes and the Esterel Massif.
The visit of the village allows observing, among other, some buildings of the XVI century, the church of St Martin build in the XVII century, and some vestiges of the old Castle (fortifications, ramparts and tower). The large building of the XVII century near the main square is called “the castle” because it is built on the ruins of the old Castle. It was a Seigneurial property. Finally, not far from Chateauneuf, one can discover the Notre Dame of Brusc chapel which is the remnant of a vast basilica, built in the XI century.
