Les Coteaux du Var
Context & Issues

The Coteaux du Var district of Saint-Jeannet, within the Eco-Vallée development area stretching north from Nice (S. France), lies on a 10-hectare site on a slope, making it difficult to develop. For EPA Plaine du Var, the public development agency overseeing the Eco-Vallée project, the challenge thus consists in building on the hilly terrain while upholding quality of life for the inhabitants and preserving the landscape.
