 Huguenots were known as French Calvinists from the 16th to 18th centuries. Since then, they have been commonly known as French Protestants. By the close of the 17th century, around 200,000 of them had been driven from Catholic France in religious persecution drives.

The Esterel Massif is a mountain range in Provence, south-east France. The terrain is characterised by red, volcanic rock, ravines and vast oak forests.
