At 335 m, altitude, Rians is a large village situated between the areas of Ste. Baume , Aix en Provence, and Ste. Victoire.
Built in a spiraling manner around its bell tower, and having a rich historical legacy, Rians is a joy to history and archaeology enthusiasts.
In exploring the city you will find lovely fountains and some ancient houses of the bourgeois.
The main livelihood of Rians is its agriculture and most recently the local wine producers earned the right to the label their wine “Coteaux d’Aix” much to the pride of the community.
