The Gapeau has its source in Signes in the foothills of the Sainte Baume Mountain. It then crosses the upper valley (Méounes-les-Montrieux, Belgentier, Solliès-Toucas) to Solliès-Pont.
All year round.
The Gapeau then crosses the great agricultural plain from the east of Toulon to the Salins in Hyères, not far from the Giens peninsula.
With 47.5 kilometers, the Gapeau has shaped the life of the region, promoting the creation of villages and traditional agricultural and industrial activities: plain’s orchard crops (cherries, apples, grapes and figs), pastoralism, mills, paper mills and tanneries in the upper valley.
The Gapeau is wild but it can be approached by nature lovers and fishing fans.
