Massif de l'Esterel, Agay

Trek along the rustic Mediterranean scenery at Massif de l'Esterel, a protected mountain range spanning the French Riviera. The sight of these craggy porphyry cliffs fringed by dark vegetation and rising above an azure sea has inspired many writers and painters. Rugged terrain with deep ravines and old cork oak forests provide shelter to red deer, foxes, and wild boars. A national forest extends for 130 sq km (50 sq mi), crisscrossed with hiking and mountain biking trails featuring maritime and stone pines and strawberry trees. Enjoy the sound of cicadas and inhale the scents of rosemary, thyme, and lavender.

  • Saw lots just driving. Took the kids for a little hike near the top. Beautiful. Also saw wild boars, be careful they can be dangerous!  more »
  • Go and see for yourself, the Massif d’Esterel is criss crossed with waking/cycling routes. Stop off at the Tourist Information Office in Agay and grab a few walking route maps and then take off...  more »
  • We took the hike up the path to the top of the hill and got some great views of the rocks, harbors and surrounding towns. The path is steep and if you take it to the top, somewhat long.  more »

  • Beautiful place with exceptional views, if you're lucky you'll see the wild boar too.
  • Beautiful mountain range with beautiful viewpoints over the Mediterranean Sea. Put on sturdy shoes, the vast majority of the hiking trails consist of loose stones.
