Plascassier Tourist Information
The tiny village of Plascassier was home to Edith Piaf and was where she died on 10 October 1963 - although she was not declared dead until 11 October in Paris.
The 17th century church is well worth visiting and next to it is a fountain built in 1891.
The village is "perched" 300m up and can be reached by taking the road towards Valbonne from Cannes and following the signs.
There are six jasmine growers supplying the Grasse perfume industry - Domain de Manon is open to visitors - near the village.
There are several walks including Plascassier to Castelleras passing some lovely manicured properties and wonderful views. Another is towards Le Roure de la Gâche - there is a great view of the Bay of La Napoule - which takes you past fields of roses and jasmine as well as olive groves.
Did you know... The garage near the roundabout reportedly sells fantastic wines?
Restaurants in Plascassier
Lougolin is just outside the village on the road to Grasse - there's a very sharp turn into its drive. With fantastic views, this restaurant offers lunch menus as well as a la carte New owner but reviews so far good and prices more affordable.
