  • SPAGHETTI ROAD. Chasteuil is located on the C2 road, 2.5 km from the main road (D952). The C2 is a small road and not accessible to caravans. The C2 is narrow and winding, so you will sometimes have to stop to let another car pass.

  • GPS Warning JUNE 2022
    Hello, I recently discovered that some GPS give incorrect directions to come to Chasteuil by car. They advise to go through Rougon (on the hiking trails), it's impossible!
    It does not matter if you arrive from Moustiers St. Marie or Castellane, you must take the D952 and turn onto the C2 which is the road to Chasteuil.
    Have a good trip. Goodbye. Nancy and Pascal
