Discover timeless villages appended like balconies to the side of the mountain

South of France enthusiasts cannot miss a journey through the small and enchanting villages of the Riviera countryside. Here the villages are appended like balconies to the side of the mountain. In these places, it's possible to forget about the modern world and enjoy a timeless charm, appreciate the local authenticity and enjoy breathtaking panoramas.
You will visit Gourdon, the archetype of a perched settlement, settled as an eagle's nest at the end of a rocky spur;
Loup Canyon takes its origin from the small village called Andon and flows across the 'Alpes Maritimes' into the Mediterranean Sea;
Tourrettes-sur-Loup, also known as the "City of Violets" because of the small purple flowers that teem under the olive trees;
the magnificent Saint-Paul-de-Vence, whose medieval streets are lined with art galleries.
And finally, Old Cagnes, situated at the top of the castle hill, so different from the frenetic pace of the Côte d'Azur and home to many artists such as Renoir, Soutine, Modigliani, Felix Ziem or Yves Klein.
