Worth the detour to admire the view
Mar 2020 • Couples
Tiny and beautiful village in the « arrière-pays », the back country. A few shops with local products, cheese, jam, soap and quite a few nice and friendly restaurants. Try la taverne provençale, great family cuisine and a terrific view on the sea and the mountains.

Mediaeval villages in South of France
Jun 2019
Amazing 11th century perched village in the south of France. Amazing view. Touristic village but you can find a lot of authentic products from the region.

Still a Gem

My second visit to this town, after 10 years. Still stupendous. The drive up through the canyon is also amazing. If you have a car while in the Riviera this is a must.

Its a must if you love villages and a photo fanatic.

A must-visit perched village
May 2019 • Couples
It’s a very winding drive up to Gourdon from Grasse (and you’ll encounter lots of cyclists on the way, so take care), but it’s well worth the effort.
Park before you reach the village then walk the rest of the way. It’s uphill, but you get a chance to see the buildings of the fortress up close, as well as glimpses of the stunning views.
This is a picturesque perched village that hasn’t changed much in a long time. The ramparts are amazing – you have to wonder at the engineering skills of the people who built them so many years ago. Many of the old buildings have been preserved beautifully, and now house artists’ studios, or shops selling local produce, as well as being home to the locals.
The panorama of the Riviera and surrounding mountains, viewed from Place Victoria, will take your breath away.

Gardens
Sep 2018 • Family
Since the mayor had a row with the ex owner the chateau has been shut and the magnificent furniture and art works removed.
The gardens are worth a visit as stunning. The village is now à trappes touristicus, souvenirs, pizza and cheap soap. Not what it used to be. The nid d’aigle has now been shut for years and there is really only a couple of places left to eat which are good...frankly not what it used to be. Pretty views, worth a stop to see the views and then move on.

Fabulous & a must see
Apr 2019 • Couples
We were on a small group tour of only 7 to Gourdon from Nice. This is a fantastic place to visit. The shops are in the old fortress & are just lovely. We thought the views spectacular. It was cold and a bit rainy when we were there on 11th April 2019, and then the fog moved in from the hills & this just added to the ambiance and made for some great photos and created a bit of an eerie atmosphere. It would also be fabulous on a sunny day. The tour guide dropped us off at the top. We ate at one of the restaurants which was very nice. All in all, recommend you visit.

Quaint village with spectacular views!
May 2019
The village of Gourdon was recommended to us by a local(Mougins) waiter. The drive up to the village is beautiful even on a cloudy drizzling day. The village shops are built into the old fortress. The view down into the valley looking, you can see clear down to the coast of Nice! We spent a couple of hours shopping and enjoyed a nice lunch of sandwiches and crepes which was all very delicious and reasonably priced! Highly recommend a visit here!

A must see
Jul 2018 • Family
We come to this great village every year while in the area. It is an excellent way to escape the heat, have a walk, and see a beautiful village. Be aware that you must park at the bottom of the hill (parking is free) and walk up a moderately steep street to reach the old village (about 100 yard walk). While this is a village that survives by tourism it is not as crowded as others in the area. You wont be bumping into people or fighting your way through the streets. Be sure to take some time to visit some of the shops, which are charming, and check out the scenic overlook. Stop for lunch in one of the many restaurants before venturing back down again. If you plan ahead you can come up to Gourdon one way and go down another (in essence making a big circle) but then you get to experience different and amazing views. Watch for cyclists on the road! This is a popular place for people to bike and train.

A mideval village on the hills. The place is small but unique. The view is stunning. all the coastal plain as well as the town steep below the cliff is at your fingertips. The atmosphere is very nice. In December it was very quite.
