The massif of Esterel.

7

In France, between Cannes and St Raphael, lays the mass of Esterel. It's a 280 million years old volcanic mass of red porphyry falling down the Mediterranean sea. The contrast between the flamboyant red rocks and the indigo blue of the sea is breathtaking.

In France, between Cannes and St Raphael, lays the mass of Esterel. It’s a 280 million years old volcanic mass of red porphyry falling down the Mediterranean sea. The contrast between the flamboyant red rocks and the indigo blue of the sea is breathtaking.

It is a beautiful areas, preserved from concrete : there are many kilometers of footpaths and nature trails in the Esterel hills, where you can contemplate majestic panoramas. It is an ideal spot for nature lovers ; you’ll have the choice between gentle strolls and robust hikes.

It’s divine to walk there in spring or early summer, when the scent of the marquis is intense : the smell of the fragrant bushes of citrus mixes to the rosemary and the pines. When the weather is very dry, or when the wind blows too fast, it is not allowed to wander in the nature, because of the danger of big fires.

But it’s a real pleasure to pass the day in a pretty creek, or on a sunny beach in summer, with a picnic. You’ll spend a wonderful day of tanning, bathing, fishing in a divine landscape.
