For a beautful picture postcard view of the Lac Sainte Croix, take a short drive from Le Diamant Noir,  Aups in the Var region of Provence , to Aiguines

see route below

 

A drive to this wonderful little village is like a drive to the top of the world and the views are rewarding.  Breathtaking  views over the turquoise waters of the lake and the lavender plateau beyond are not to be missed.

There are several bars and restaurants in the village, which is home to  several craftsmen, from production of provençal  santons,  to wood turning, with some lovely pottery galleries.
