Geocache Description:

Petite balade sympatique dans le bois de Gaudissard le Baric ou bois de la Sine, situé entre Vence et Saint Paul.
Si vous continuez ce chemin en direction de Saint Paul, vous arriverez sur le sentier du canal qui conduit à Saint Paul. L’eau captée à la source du Malvan proche du château du même nom, est plus connu sous le nom de château de la Reine Jeanne.

La tradition populaire raconte qu’au 14e s. Jeanne, Reine de Naples, aurait accordé aux Saint Paulois, un droit sur cette eau, la source étant sur ses terres. Ce canal alimente encore aujourd’hui plusieurs fontaines du village. En poursuivant la marche, vous découvrirez le village de Saint Paul.

Nice walk in Gaudissard le baric forest, or Sine forest.
After a pleasant walk on this road edged with pine trees and holm oaks, a road sign directs you to leave the road and turn left on to the path of the water-course. This water-course carries to Saint Paul, the water from the source of the Malvan, near the castle of that name, better known as the château de la Reine Jeanne.

According to the popular tradition, in the XIVth century , Jeanne Queen of Naples granted a right to this water to the people of St Paul, the spring-head being on her lands. This channel still supplies today several fountains in the village. Walking among the trees and plants alongside the path, you will discover the village of Saint Paul.
