Heading out of Grasse on the D2085, there's a choice to be made: art or landscape. Whether to brave the back-ups on a coastal detour to see some of the finest 20th century art museums in France - Antibes for Picasso, Biot for Leger, Cagnes for Renoir, St-Paul-du-Vence for the Maeght Foundation..... or enjoy the more outdoor pleasures of the...

Drove from Vence toward Grasse do do the gorges. Stopped at the cascade/waterfall to have a look. Paid 1 euro pp to the automated machine to go through the turnstile to enter the falls area. There was a lot of water the day we were there and it was a good view.

The falls are fantastic and magical, the granite cliffs magnificent. The roads are winding though, so beware.....but it's worth the effort. And visit Gourdon, a wondrousl hill village perched high above the sea.

Well worth the drive - take a leisurely trip around the Loup loop and have lunch overlooking the river on a sunny terrace set in the hills - fantastic!

After seeing the Gorges du Verdon, weren't expecting any better, we were wrong! Good access, although a few interesting 'hairpins' - stunning views - saw the waterfalls also! Visited Gourdon at the top, well worth a stop. Did the circular tour by following a normal 'map' and well worth it.

We parked in a layby on the road under a huge overhang and walked down a steep scrambly track to the water. With 6 kids under 10 and 5 adults plus picnic it was a bit nervy walking down but we got there without mishap and we were rewarded by a fantastic experience. The views were spectacular, the water ice-cold,... More

Unbelievably we found the Gorges very easily. I put this in my satnav “438-446 Route des Gorges, 06140 Tourettes-Sur-Loupe, France" and find myself literally 100m from where I needed to be! (This never happens!) Found a space in a layby on the right (although these are very hard to find) and walked up the road a 100m to find a... More

Before going i thought there would be several places to swim; however there was only really one spot to swim. But it was lovely-very cold though!Beautiful drive up the mountains!

We parked in Bar sur Loup and did the well marked trail UP to village of Gourdon. It was quite a pull up towards the end but the views were wonderful all the way and a great sense of achievement once we got there! A loop back to Bar s Loup made sure it was not just a 'there and... More
