Les Gorges du Loup
Europe France Provence Alpes Cote D’Azur Alpes-Maritimes
Rumour has it that the main road that winds through the lovely Gorges du Loup was built by workers paid by the Cycling Club of France. True or not, the area is certainly a favoured cycling route today, and being just 35 minutes (by car) from the French Riviera, it remains one of the region’s most popular all-round natural attractions.
Les Gorges du Loup is located close to Le Bar-sur-Loup, a petit medieval village with lots of lovely old houses clustered around a central 13th-century château. Perched on a rocky spur between Grasse and Vence, the village offers panoramic views of the Loup Valley. The site itself, a mile or so away, has 70 pitches (plus a few chalets and mobile homes) set on attractive terraced slopes where roses and lavender were once grown to make perfume. Though the pitches are fairly small, the site has an organic intimacy that’s perfectly suited to the region.
To wear out the kids there’s a decent-sized pool with a diving board and slide, and if you fancy a night off from cooking there’s a restaurant and bar. It’s in a prime location for all kinds of activities, from hang-gliding and climbing to cycling and hiking.
Plus there are lots of other pretty outposts to explore, such as Tourrettes-sur-Loup and the plus beaux village of Gourdon (as seen in Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief). And don’t worry – you don’t have to be a cyclist to see them all. A car will do just fine.
