Must area to visit, with some breathtaking views along the coast. By car, bus, train , bike or walk from St.Raphael to Cannes. Coves and beaches with the pink/red hills and lush green trees.

We got to the top in the car and the views overlooking the mountains and coast were spectacular. Ideal area for hiking and cycling and leisurely picnics. We were lucky enough to see a group of six wild boar.

Best part of visiting this part of France is exploring the various paths and trails of the massif. Words can’t do the terrain and views you’ll find here justice, you have to discover it yourself. Please do.

Fabulous road and scenery, especially on a motor cycle. The red cliffs above the road and calanques below are stunning.

This piece of nature is truly one of a kind, the mountains are really unique when you compare them to other mountain ranges.

You’d have thought this gem would be invaded by tourists and locals alike. To the contrary, we hardly come across a few mountain bikers or trailers each time. Lots of marked trails are available with stunning views of mountains and ocean.

The coastal road between Saint Raphael and Cannes in a must. The many views along this drive the lovely little places on the way make this trip very enjoyable.

BJB, Sorry not an expert but the D559 is the coastal road, she is narrow, windy, one lane each way and I did it east to west but reverse would be better I think ? Easier to pull up at good points ? If the GP is on maybe... More
