For every architect, this monument is an architectural holy grail. Its purity and simplicity have inspi- red generations of architects. Le Corbusier, who visited the site in , summed it up: Fernand Pouillon pays tribute to the genius of the place through the master-builder in his novel, The Stones of the Abbey. Even today, young architects eagerly flock to Le Thoronet.

It is no rare occurrence to see, walking along the road, students from Japan — or elsewhere. The interplay of the abbey after it had been left light lends grace to the stone and beauty to the lines. As for the acoustics, which to rack and ruin following the French for the Cistercians formed an integral part of their spiritual quest, in the vast nave Revolution, the building was restored they offer a divine echo of the voices of men that nine centuries of history have several times by the French never silenced.

But the watercourse was also shaped by people, who constantly sought to control this indispensable, sometimes abundant — even destructive — and sometimes rare resource. The patiently constructed dry-stone walls on the hillsides, the irrigation systems, the spring water catchments, the fountains, mills and lavoirs or communal wash houses The choice of crops that need less water, especially vines and olives, also helped to form the landscapes.

D epending on the periods and places, the Var has a very Mediter- ranean temperament that veers from one extreme to the other: Consequently, in the north and west of the department, there are aquatic resources in the chalky soil areas but far fewer along the littoral, apart from a few fragile alluvial aquifers around the lower Argens valley, the Giscle or the Gapeau.

These geographical disparities, the rainfall that fluctuates from one year to the next, the constant uncertainty and the need for water that is always greater in summer at a time when less rain falls, have driven people to undertake ever more ambitious schemes to transfer the water from one place to another. More re- cently, the construction of the Provence Canal has taken water from the Verdon to the littoral in the Var region since In , a 75 kilometre east-flowing extension was funded by the Var Department council to carry water to the diffe- rent villages as far as Roquebrune-sur-Argens.

In comparison, leisure spots. Over Esparron lake, Quinson lake and Sainte-Croix lake 16, hectares of land is water-bound part of the year.

The pace of village life has always been influenced by the Issole river. They first set- tled on a small mound to prevent flooding. More buildings followed, gradually moving closer to the Issole. In , repeated flooding in the low-lying areas led to a bend in the Issole being diverted. It has to be said that the flow of water is extremely unpredictable. But there can also be considerable flooding. Dating back to the 17th century, the bridge is our starting point for the visit to the old village with its wash houses or lavoirs and fountains.

In fact, the bridge that crosses the Caramy river below the village was built in the 17th century to link up with farmland to the south of the river and with Vins. The architecture was archaic even for its time, and the post renaissance or baroque construction borrows from Roman style. Built entirely of stone, and featuring three arches, it is a remarkable piece of architecture, and is listed as a historical monument.

Four resistants from the Var were shot there by the Germans on 29 July You can park at the entrance to the village when you arrive from Flassans.

This 3-hectare flood-prone area features meadows and riverside vegetation characteristic of wetlands. The water here was tamed with a weir, ancient canals and floodgates.

This natural boundary between the Var and the neighbouring department of the Alps of Haute-Provence is characteri- sed by majestic landscapes. While its great canyon is renowned worldwide, the same cannot be said for many nearby villages which sprung up over the centuries around the river, harnessed by the people to satisfy their need for water.

Artignosc-sur-Verdon is one such village, where a short walking trail leads to a well-preserved heritage site from the source of the Rancs through to Verdon. There are two separate loops that can make up one long walk. We suggest you begin your walk on the longest trail, where you can admire a wonderful panorama overlooking the Verdon. Start from the centre of the village. After viewing the fountain in the Place du Bi- centenaire together with the lavoir, the walk can begin.

To the right of the lavoir, follow the road down towards the fields. The me- dieval fountain and basin are perfectly preserved. At the fork in the road, take the path on your right. In an interview with our reporter MrC gave his candid views.

Resplendent in silly hat, thigh length shorts, white socks and sandals Mr K looked the epitome of the Englishman Abroad. Sadly he was marked down for not wearing a knotted handkerchief on his head. It has to be said he was far ahead of the other competitors who now possess the ubiquitous appearance of EuroTramps. Snowflake Event A dead-heat in the Snowflake event between RevA and MrL means the competition in this event should be ultra-competitive over next few days.

Once they took their shirts off, 2 of the judges had to be rushed to Hyeres Hospital suffering from acute Snow Blindness. It was suggested that if Lancashire County Cricket club wished to save money next season they could actually use Rev A and Mr L as sight-screens!

At this point the proceedings were brought to a halt as the French Coastguard Service had been informed of a distressed beached whale being spotted in the Hyeres area.

Further investigation uncovered it was indeed MrL going for a swim in the swimming pool. Later, in a relaxed mood, MrL came out with the quote of the day. In the afternoon Captain R decided we had all worked very hard and the Squad needed a break, so we boarded the team bus for Carqueranne about 5 mins away. A pleasant walk along the beach was interrupted when a lady petanquer nearly hit Rev A with one of her balls.

We found a very pleasant bar le Pub!!!! During this period it became obvious Rev A was having problems with his baseball cap. Upon investigation Rev A declared the offending item was actually the stud. Several grands pressions later the Team returned to Base Camp.

Obviously being a Friday evening and during the course of the day having stopped numerous Kronenburgs from being wasted, there was only one choice for the evening meal — curry. Rev A absolved them. Tomorrow the Paralytic Olympics moves to Bormes Les Mimosas and if previous events there are anything to go by then quite a number of Gold Medals might well be awarded!

Indeed, Team Captain R feels his squad of highly tuned athletes highly tuned what???? Day 3 — Bormes Les Mimosas. Day 3 commenced with a working-breakfast working? It has been noted that Captain R was the only member of the squad who had not only not visited the Winners Rostrum but to be quite frank had not even been close. An ashen-faced Captain R, now nick-named Captain Sensible by certain members of the local press, acknowledged he had been out of form so far but promised he would try and do better.

One member of the Paralytics squad, who wished to remain nameless, Mr C, said. During the team meeting, one of the events at Carqueranne the previous evening was brought up. This involved a femme jolie walking along the promenade in a thin white chemise. Mr I enquired, innocently enough. A quiet morning was spent by the Sun Bathing Squad getting in some extra practice whilst the rest of the squad limbered up with various sun-dodging exercises.

The team set off for Bormes in high spirits uplifted by the presence of Sir Geoffrey Boycott, it was only when he regaled us with the full range of his bowel movements we realised it was MrL. A pleasant journey to Bormes was marred when we arrived there only to find one floor of the car park being used for the village fete. You would have thought they would have at least either given us prior knowledge or reserved a special place for us!

How the guy parked next to the Team Bus was going to get out was never fully explained! We were sure the barrista recognised us from previous years as he pushed less experienced barristas out of the way to serve us.

In all fairness he kept the Kronenburg coming as we admired the young and not so young ladies dressed in all their finery promenading between Church and Town Hall. Unfortunately the rest of the afternoon was spent watching the French take all the Golds in the various Driving events: We whiled away a good number of hours there before it was pointed out we were expected at the Champagne Reception at the Embassy on Birdshit Hill.

Captain R then secured JBs second Gold of the day. And what a Gold! Taking the French on at their own game. By the time the 3rd reverse came in, the noise from cars behind blasting their horns was deafening but it certainly cleared the roundabout — and we were away, leaving all the other vehicles trying to get out of that one.

MrL still protecting himself from the sun at 10pm! By the end of supper and the Champagne Reception a number of bodies were seen to be slumped across the table! After the demanding schedule of the previous 3 days, Captain R gave his squad a well deserved day off. The Left Footers in the squad took the opportunity to go to church in Hyeres, presumably to pray for the Right Footers The Right Footers in the squad took the opportunity to do some sun-bathing for the Left Footers.

Captain R tries to reverse the Tour Bus into the church to save having to walk. After lunch RevA took a well-earned siesta whilst the rest of the squad took the opportunity to join MrI in a spot of Egyptian PT, that is all except MrL who quietly disappeared for 45 minutes. When he finally rejoined the main squad MrL then enthralled us all with a blow-by-blow commentary of his bowel movements during the missing 45 minutes!

Captain R then took entire Paralytics Squad down to the Port for a late afternoon stroll. Mr R wore Mr Cs shirt from the previous day which he had somehow managed to shrink.

MrL saw fit to come out in his pyjamas! The journey down took approx 15 minutes but it then took us 20 minutes to find a parking space. A quick stroll round the Port before finding a likely looking Bar.

Unfortunately it was the worse Beer in France served by surliest barrista in France who even demanded payment as soon as he brought the beer! This may be the first occasion in the history of the JBs when beer has actually been left! Fortunately the next Bar we found was completely different, decent beer, good service with a plentiful supply of free nuts and crisps.

Some of the Squad might, how shall we say, not exactly be at the peak of fitness? Back to Base Camp for Supper. Tonight is officially Barbecue Night. To get the fire going and the food ready obviously takes a little longer than normal which means the void has to be filled by making sure any beer does not go to waste. The meaningful conversations have been replaced by playing silhouettes against the swimming pool wall. It started innocently enough with Alfred Hitchcock silhouettes and the dancing girl from Tales of the Unexpected but by the time the barbee was ending it had been reduced, well to be quite honest, to the downright crude!

Accompanied I might add by plenty of third form giggles and a number of squad members doing the actions to Agadoo whilst it was being played at full blast.

We were better at some than others. The Pyrotechnics Squad in a warm up session for tomorrows Final. After the barbee we all repaired to the Main Room to watch the last 3 episodes of Early Doors that we fell asleep watching the previous night. The weather forecast for today didnt look too good. Cloudy, Showers at about 10am with thunderstorms about 3 pm. However spirits were lifted when we heard torrential rain, high winds and gales in the Manchester area!!!!

It certainly started cloudy in Hyeres then, as promised, the rain came at 10am and it rained non-stop until, well, And then the Sun came out — to give us possibly the hottest day of the Tour, it certainly did for RevA later in the afternoon when the promised thunderstorm didnt turn up. After a hearty breakfast we boarded the team bus for St Tropez via Cavaliare. A very pleasant beach, well it was until one old lady unashamedly changed into her bikini in full view of everyone, exposing one very, very white backside.

Once again, whilst LS Caffrey did all the hard work softening the Germans up albeit from 15 miles at sea, it was the Americans who took the credit. Speaking of WW2, once again we saw yet another David Bancroft look-alike, which made us question what exactly was his fathers role in the war.

The Restaurant was tres elegant ie much too nice for you lot — ed. La Maman welcomed us and when we ordered our Pizzas grand size, as ordered by Captain R Maman was not at all surprised. Unfortunately other than Mr I, who literally, licked the plate clean no-one else managed to remotely finish their pizza. There was one very unfortunate moment when after ordering our, by now very much needed, Grands Pressions we saw the waiter coming with what looked like our order only for him to go sailing past and deliver them to the table beyond.

Eventually the waiter returned them to their rightful owners. One unusual feature of the restaurant was the toilets which were camouflaged out as an American Freezer. Oh we had such fun watching people try to work out where they were!

We arrived in St Tropez in early afternoon and the temp must have been in the high 70s perhaps even St Tropez has a large collection of some of the most expensive Yachts in all of Europe. RevA was fast becoming exhausted and asked to be excused as he went back to the car.
