Trek along the rustic Mediterranean scenery at Massif de l'Esterel, a protected mountain range spanning the French Riviera. The sight of these craggy porphyry cliffs fringed by dark vegetation and rising above an azure sea has inspired many writers and painters. Rugged terrain with deep ravines and old cork oak forests provide shelter to red deer, foxes, and wild boars. A national forest extends for 130 sq km (50 sq mi), crisscrossed with hiking and mountain biking trails featuring maritime and stone pines and strawberry trees. Enjoy the sound of cicadas and inhale the scents of rosemary, thyme, and lavender.

Beautiful place with exceptional views, if you're lucky you'll see the wild boar too.
Magical landscapes we do not get tired of these red rocks that fall into the sea, a pure Marvel. Many mini stops for cars along the road, often stairs hidden in nature to descend to the most paradisiacal coves, long ago we had not seen such crystal clear water.
