  • If you are ever lucky enough to go past, the mandatory visit this unforgettable place, an unusual corner of nature as the Verdon Gorge. Cretan road, the official name of which is very picturesque path D23 route along the Verdon Gorge-the most interesting natural attractions of France. Its length is about 100 km and most of the route is at an altitude of more than 950 m. we drove the whole way, circling, couldn't sleep on narrow, but very well maintained mountain road, went on almost every observation platform, and each time it was an entirely new place a completely new look. Our girls captured the spirit, as we ourselves:) At that moment I thought that roskoshnej places I've yet seen in life, so it was delightful. It's a pity we didn't have time to drive to the turquoise Mountain Lake Lac de Sainte Croix, but it some other time. Since then it's been a few years, but the Gorge remains in my memory as something very impressive!
