A journey in Beauty for nature's lovers in my favorite spot


Unique with their red rocks that resemble Colorado, The Ciand and Daluis are testimonies of the creative capacities of Mother Nature. The road which passes through them is one of the most beautiful you can imagine, dotted with numerous balconies where you will stop.

This tour is also a journey through history with the discovery of Entrevaux, an antique roman city which became a strategic site of the kingdom of France, fortified and developed by the famous Vauban. At first look the visitor is impressed by the hilltop citadel and this impression will only magnify during your visit.

Between the 2 canyons is nestled Peone! A pure jewel of the Southern Alps, this mountain village is a testimony of centuries of isolation, a place you will not forget. Hundreds of meters above, Valberg is one of the oldest ski resorts in France, one of the sunniest as well, where we will stop for a promenade on the "planetary path" between the Sun and Neptune.

A tour made of beauty.

Itinerary

Entrevaux, amazing citadel built by Vauban, architect of the sun king. . . a great first cofee stop.
The Daluis canyon is my favorite, numerous stops will give you the possibility to appreciate this natural wonder, also mineral reserve. Fior apic-nic it is just ideal.
A short stop in Guillaume to admire the impressive ruins of the medieval castle of the Reine Jeanne, and appreciate a quiet time in this village known for its animal fair.
Visit Peone, one of my top favorite village. It seems that time stop by one day, few hundred years ago. . . the visit in itself is an experience you won't forget if you want to feel the roots of authenticity.
Stop by an abandonned sheepfold of the XVIIIth century and it's breathtaking view.
Valberg, this former "campagne" is now a resort where we can walk an amazing path.
Pass the village of Beuil
The famous Cians canyon, a pure wonder. . . again

This area is pure heaven, far from beaten paths and tourist traps.
I recommend a pic-nic, it is the perfect place for that.

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour is fantastic!!! I had no idea the natural beauty that is so close in the mountains near Nice. We are in Colorado a lot, but this is different and so stunning. I know people come for the coast but I think they make a big mistake not seeing the mountains. No crowds, beautiful, cool temps, and top notch scenery! Michel is an incredible guide. Perfect English, incredibly knowledgeable and also funny. I chose this tour on his recommendation and I'M glad I did.
