Saint Savournin is located in the very south of France. If you could fly the coast is only a few kilometres further south. Traveling by land it is a whole different matter. That is because Saint Savournin is shielded from the Mediterranean coast by a large mountain range called the Massif de l’Étoile. The result is that Saint Savournin is a colder and wetter than for example Marseille, which lies on the other side. The town is built in the mountain range at an altitude of more than 400m. The highest mountain near Saint Savournin reaches 779m. The hillclimb is however not further up the mountain but on a hillside below the town.
The area has a long history with the mining industry. The mines of Saint Savournin continued until the 21st century. Some of that history can be traced in the Mining Museum in the nearby town of Gréasque.
The nearest cities are Aix-en-Provence (25km) and Marseille (30km).
