Gourdon, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur

4.7
#7 of 10 in Neighborhoods in French Riviera - Cote d'Azur
Gourdon, offers magnificent panoramic views of a spectacular surrounding. It sits on the edge of a rocky spur that juts out about 500m(1640 feet) directly above the Loup River where the Gorges du Loup comes out at the Pont-du-Loup village. There is only one entrance, from which you can access the main street. In former times, it was defended by a simple and harmonious Roman gate that has been demolished at the beginning of the century. The castle is one of Gourdon's most important features. The village is full of little boutiques with perfume products, a glass blower who creates intricate masterpieces. The view from the edge of the village is worth the time spent to reach the site.

  • Although it is a bit outside the usual "laps" inshore sula Riviera, it's really worth doing this hour from Nice or Antibes, to get this far. Large car park, a few minutes and arrive in this beautiful village impeccably maintained. Shops to visit (high prices!), a few restaurants and a few bars in less than one hour you can visit but is truly recommended. Beautiful scenery with the hill that reaches the sea. can be combined with other countries to visit, as Le Bar sur Loup, Vence, St Paul de Vence.

  • Gourdon is really very beautiful and well preserved. Even if not all of the restaurants and shops are open in the winter, worth a visit. Only downside: the hiking options are rather limited and the visit to the village is not day-filling.

  • Breathtaking this village perched, a sumptuous panorama, a friendly village, a gem nestled in the mountain. If you're in the area... make a stop. You will not regret
