“Pretty little hilltop village with lots of quaint restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Some great little shops and restaurants with amazing views over the surrounding countryside.

Also if you take the mountain road via Vence then you get the benefit of driving along one of the most amazing roads in Europe.

A nice day trip, as you can easily pop to Grasse and Mougins too.

“Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This walled village was my favorite. It smelled of soap, flowers, and delicious food. The drive there was spectacular with winding roads and wonderful views. Plan to spend the day there!!

“Amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

During our road trip in the French Riviera (inland) and the Loup valley we decided to make a short stop in Gourdon. Gourdon is a picturesque old village, with small streets, boutiques with perfumes and some restaurants. It's really beautiful, the view is magnificent and it's certainly worth a visit. One hour should be more than enough to see the view, take some pictures and walk in the village. On the way (5 min before reaching the village) there is an amazing view point where you can stop your car and take some pictures of the hill and the castle!

“Small gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Gourdon is a small village at the back of Valbonne, behind Antibes. It is very small, but well preserved and a bit of a tourist trap in the summer. Go there during the day because it shuts down at night except in July and August. So have lunch there, the restaurants are not great, but no worse than on the coast, where it is difficult to find decent food unless you spend a lot of money. There are lots of shops some better than others, lots of soaps and perfume. Be careful what you buy, the soap could be made in the far East!!, or the olive oil!!! Great view on a clear day all the way down to the sea.
