“Stunning Views in a small ville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Gourdon is a small village on the top of a mountain in what are called Préalpes Nice. It is a wonderful place, with wonderful views of the valley and around Nice and the Alpes Maritimes. Worth the winding road. The road is very good

“Pretty little hilltop village with lots of quaint restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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!
