In the company of your private guide, follow the road from the coast through the Loup Valley, discovering the charms of Medieval Provence. Start in the perched village of Haut-de-Cagnes, a magnet for artists with its towering Grimaldi Castle and cobbled steps. Continue on to Saint-Paul-de-Vence, once a stronghold on the French border and now known for its art galleries, charming stone buildings, and gastronomic restaurants. In Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a center for the region’s violet production, explore narrow streets populated by craftsmen, sampling local products along the way. A side road leads you to les Courmettes, “land of herds”; stop at a local goat farm to taste its organic cheese. Complete your day with a dramatic drive through the spectacular Gorge de Loup and a visit to Gourdon. Perched 760 meters above sea level, this charming village provides a panoramic view across the countryside to the Mediterranean Sea.
