Separated by 4km, the villages of Montagnac and Montpezat are distinguished by their distinct natural environments: the low gorges of the Verdon for Montpezat and the plateau of Valensole for Montagnac.
This commune is bounded on the south by the Verdon river at the level of the gorges of Baudinard and extends on the north to Allemagne-en-Provence and the valley of Colostre.
The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The caves located on the left bank of the Verdon river have given numerous indications of occupation since the Neolithic period.
Montagnac owes its name to a Gallo-Roman agricultural establishment, a villa owned by a man called Montanius.
The inhabitants of the plateau call this village Montagnac-les-truffes, which of course reminds us of the black gold of the plateau. The feast of St. Antoine, patron saint of truffle growers, is celebrated every year in the church dedicated to this saint.
The village of Montpezat is located further south on a small promontory on top of which are the remains of a castle.
