Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / French Riviera - Cote d'Azur / Saint-Raphael / Agay / Massif de l'Esterel
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.

Saw lots just driving. Took the kids for a little hike near the top. Beautiful. Also saw wild boars, be careful they can be dangerous! more »
Beautiful place with exceptional views, if you're lucky you'll see the wild boar too.
Beautiful mountain range with beautiful viewpoints over the Mediterranean Sea. Put on sturdy shoes, the vast majority of the hiking trails consist of loose stones.
