Village de La Javie
Charmant village à 20 minutes au nord de Digne-les-Bains.
Entouré de prés verdoyants plantés de pommiers, dominé par une modeste chapelle d'allure romane perchée sur son rocher.
Venez découvrir ses petites ruelles pittoresques.
Situated on the edge of a beautiful road which crosses the wide Bléone valley, the village of La Javie occupies a serene site at the confluence of two rivers, the Arigeol and the Bléone.
La Javie possède quelques vieilles ruelles pittoresques en escalier, et quelques belles maisons de pierre grise.
In the 30s, in La Javie, there were 600 inhabitants, 6 grocery stores, 1 miller, 1 tinner, 1 cobbler and 5 postmen! In place of the ecomuseum, there was the presbytery in which up to 20 priests resided. The ecomuseum traces the history of the village. Next to the bakery, its modest door opens onto a surprising residence, where, for years, residents have collected, preserved and highlighted the memory of traditions and local history in the XNUMXth century.
The Sarteau pear.
La Javie claims to be “capital of La Sarteau”: it is a small candied pear very famous among confectioners and confined to a restricted territory of which La Javie is the center. The Sarteau Pear and other ancient fruit varieties fair takes place the first weekend in November
The agricultural fair for “tardons” (sheep) is held every year in September.
