A village of nature and traditions at the gates of Digne les Bains.

Description

15 minutes from the center of Digne les Bains, Champtercier offers an unobstructed view of the surrounding mountains and Mount Chiran that the "Sentiers de Gassendi", marked hiking trails (4,5 km, drop: 200 m), allow you to discover.

Champtercier is the birthplace of Pierre Gassendi (1592-1655), historian, physicist, philosopher, theologian, astronomer and naturalist. The tranquility of this place has led craftsmen from the Pays Dignois to settle there.

Proud of its traditions, Champtercier continues to cultivate that of santons through, in particular, its annual santon fair and the village santonnier.
