Rians is a provençal village in the Upper Var located north east of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire. The main employment is agriculture, predominantly wine. The village itself is built on a hill that is dominated by a 12th-century bell tower and the church of Notre Dame de Nazareth. The Town is made up of concentric medieval streets that work their way down the hill.
Notable events in Rians include dancing in the squares on 14 July, the Fête de St Laurent on 8 August and the Fête de la Courge in October.
