Visited with friends - a 30 min trek to get there, weather was amazing. Once there, the view is beautiful and makes for some good pictures.

The area around Creux Du Van offers some great hikes. I like to climb from Noiraigue, which is a short steep climb lasting around an hour. The views over Creux Du Van (on a clear day) are simply stunning. There is a restaurant 5 mins...More

It's a nice place, and the access to it is very easy (if that's what your after). Anyone can take a stroll at the top of the cliff and enjoy the views. When we visited we were caught by a sudden storm; we got very...More
