  • Long read and thought go or not here. Now say with confidence that it is worth it. We laid on the trip here 3:00, barely missed the 5. Beautiful gorge, the color of water cannot pass. Species that are opened from the mountains is impressive. And rising to the top-most point of mountains, even birds fly below you! We would come here again for a few days, to be alone with nature.

  • A landscape that takes your breath away, a lovely sky thanks to little light pollution, a water of one color and impressive gorges, make this place special. To explore by kayak, without haste.

  • This natural site is incredible! Starting from Moustiers Ste Marie to Castellane, one discovers a narrow, almost inaccessible rocks steep and inhospitable landscape. And yet, by the only road that crosses the Gorge, we discover the multiple laces that circumvent them. It is breathtaking so is so great, it's beautiful!

  • An incredibly scenic mountain drive, with a lovely swimming lake at the end of it. We planned to go on the pedalos, but unfortunately they were all booked up by 3pm when we were there. Still, a lovely day out.
  • Awesome. We took the D23 road up the mountain which is amazing! You end up driving to 1285 m high above the gorge. Its incredibly impressive and if anybody is a budding photographer, take your DSLR as there are stunning views of the Gorge itself, but also Vultures! At one of the viewing points there were 6 vultures right beside us - never seen them so up close. Incredible. We didn't get to boat up the Gorge as it was too windy and we were told it was a 'must', and it looked like it would be pretty amazing. So definitely recommend d that so leave a full day to do everything.
  • Great scenery, good to rent a motorbike and drive around the canyon.
  • Posto incantevole. Da non perdere.
  • A beautiful spot, fantastic scenery, lovely people. Can't wait to revisit!
