The vil­lage of Moustiers-Ste-Marie oc­cu­pies a breath­tak­ing set­ting, be­neath a large gap in the lime­stone cliffs of the Gorges du Ver­don in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. It is fa­mous for pro­duc­ing glazed ce­ram­ics ( faïence), pro­duc­tion of which peaked in the 17th and 18th cen­turies, but to­day the vil­lage is still home to some 20 work­shops de­voted to the craft. Des­ig­nated a plus beau vil­lage, Moustiers is sit­u­ated in the heart of the Parc Na­turel Ré­gional du Ver­don. In this semi­moun­tain­ous re­gion you can find wild boar, chamois and mar­mots. moustiers.eu par­c­du­ver­don.fr
