The French Riviera is not only a splendid seaside, but also and maybe mostly a gorgeous countryside where, for thousand of years most of the human activity was located.

It's the legacy of that long history that i'm inviting you to discover with this tour.

I will guide through the villages of the Loup valley, all different, all full of personality, and all fascinating.

You will pass from village to village following one of the most scenic itinerary of the region, and each time I will do a guided visit of the site before giving you some free time to appreciate the charm of those jewels.

Discover the military architecture of the Renaissance and the history of art on the Riviera with the strong hold of Saint Paul ; fall for the unique provencal charm of the medieval village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup and its craftsmen ; understand the traditional life of the countryside in Gourdon where you will discover 40 kilometers of seaside ; be amazed by the XVIth century Lerins plan of the Valbonne !

Itinerary
