Massif de l'Esterel, Agay

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.

  • I went there during the weekend of November 11, so i.e. there weren't many people in the mountains, but the temperature was bearable!! It is a beautiful place, which exudes tranquility and security and these colors ..... I would probably go back around September/October to do the ride again but by boat..

  • Enter the esterel massif, you have lots of walks to do on foot, it's a wild and unspoiled massif. the only less pleasant areas are those on the seafront that are too busy and are full of motorcycle noise on the coastal road

  • 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.
