Le Part of the triangle d'Or villages of Opio, Chateauneuf-de-Grasse and Roquefort-les-Pins , Le Rouret 350 metres above the Cote d'Azur dates back to Roman Times and the signs of 1000 years of cultivation can still be seen in the communal forest behind the villa, even the remains of a Roman Camp. The village is mainly residential and has all the 'musthaves' of a small provencal village: a baker, a weekly market, an organic farmers outlet and even a 1-starred Michelin restaurant. About 15 Michelin starred restaurants can be found within 15 km radius, some with more than 1 star. Nearby are several charming villages and towns including the mountain top villages of Gourdon and Chateauneuf-de-Grasse, the artists' village of St Paul de Vence, Grasse - the perfume capital of the world - and the quaint town of Valbonne with a weekly market on Fridays. The immediate area offers many leisure facilities including extensive walking trails, hang-gliding, tennis and around 10 golf courses
