Gourdon, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur
(4.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Gourdon and other Gourdon attractions into our Gourdon vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We made a stop in Gourdon during our full day tour to Grasse and Wine tasting. This was a fantastic tour to do.. we traveled with Liven Up; their tour guides are great, speak perfect English and will ...  more »
  • With a nice view over the mountains all the way to the see. Very old small town with nice small shops. A good place to visit for a half a day trip. Also nice restaurants with magnificent view. 
  • It is strange that no reviews about paragliding (flying through air currents). Approaching Gurdonu's hard not to notice the porjashhie in the air of multi-colored parachutes. This place is popular enough to commit. Here fly and solo paragliders, and experienced instructors ride. The flight itself lasts about 20 minutes, and those minutes are filled with incredible views from such a height and incredible sensations of delight! Ride all from small to big, wanting a lot, so usually it's better to book a place in advance (especially in summer). ascendance06.com-we have used data instructors and were very pleased. Scared to do only the first steps before the start, but then forget about fear and enjoy what was going on. Also guys give the camera go Pro to record flight.
