Been here a few times now and still love the natural rock formations. Takes a few hours to walk around the area to see all the usual sites, but well worth the visit if you passing by the region. Although the rock formations haven’t changed...More

Magnificent landscape views. The area has the most bizarre boulders siting in peculiar locations and situations - you must see for yourself. The boulders make up valleys and chasms. Easy to access and very few visitors make this worth a visit.

If your idea of a holiday/break is partying in a beach resort then don't even consider le Sidobre. Visit le Sidobre to enjoy the peace of the countryside and admire the strange rock formations. For cyclists the area is heaven with quiet roads, hilly terrain...More

Don't waste precious petrol and time to visit these "rochers". Route/highway markers are very few and far between. There are many glacial formations in this region. Some are interesting to behold but none of them achieve "rock star" status. Trails are not easy to navigate,...More
