Set off from Grasse along good roads to Gourdon. Arrived early, not very busy, to admire the views and the village (great for little shops). Followed the gorge along windy roads alongside the river before climbing back up to the lovely village of Tourettes sur Loup. Great small shops and artist galleries inside a walled village perched high on a hilltop.
The day was completed by a visit to the incredibly busy St.Paul de Vence. A walled village, similar to Carcasonne or Mont St Michel. Unfortunately it was chock full of visitors (so goodness knows what the high season would be like) but well worth the visit.
Parking however was expensive to discourage long stays I think!!

This daytrip route is highly recommended! Plan on encountering a variety of vehicles, breathtaking views, well maintained and very drivable roads, along with numerous spots to stop and contemplate the scenes ahead and below.
There are a number of enjoyable villages, cafes and simple viewpoints to stop, your biggest mistake will be to rush through.
The weekend can be busy, but still worth the effort.

The scenery is breath-taking, the circuit varied in hills, curves, flat road. Great place to recharge your batteries without having to wear the yellow jersey from the Tour de France. I haven't done the tour in a few years, but I remember it as a summer highlight with the entire family on our bicycles, so not too hard, although not exactly for rank beginners.

The narrow and beautiful Gorges du Loup cuts through the hills at the foot of Gourdon,12 km from Grasse. The D2210 road along the forested edge of the hills runs through Bar-sur- Loup,Pont-sur-Loup,Tourrettes-sur-Loup and Vence.
Drive up the valley and see Gourdon perched on the cliffs above and below ,as you drive is The cascade de Courmes (waterfall) comes down over the notch in a long spray of water. It then spills over large mossy boulders into the pool,40 m below the top.
Tip.... There is not much parking near the falls with the best choice on the left just near the exit of the first long tunnel.

We were on our way from Vence to Gourdon and had a nice refreshing stop at Gorges du Loup. You can wonder along the river (easy walk) and admire the beauty of the mountains & the river.
There s also a candy factory & very French Bistro.
