As many smaller villages off the beaten track and closer to the coast, the village of Fox-Amphoux lives a quiet life. The old church tower behind the town square offers a magnificent 360 view of the valley and the beautiful surrounding country side.
One notable resident was the artist René Lacroix (originally from Nice) who had a gallery in the far end of the village. René Lacroix exhibited works both in Provence and abroad in Denmark and USA. His works are in private collections around the world.
