“Alright, this is not the French Riviera anymore, it's about a 2 hour drive. But if your stay on the Riviera is long enough and you have time to go here, it's absolutely worth it. Basically, this place is a paradise for nature lovers. I go there several times every summer. Here's a non-exhaustive list of things that you can do here: 1) Kayak / Pedal boat in the Gorges du Verdon. This gorge is insanely beautiful but during peak summer, there are just way too many people and it degrades the experience. 2) Lavender fields. If you're thinking of particularly famous lavender field pictures, they were probably taken here, on the Plateau de Valensole, above the Sainte-Croix lake. But the period to see them starts from mid-June until mid-July. After mid-July, you won't see many of them. And none the rest of the year. 3) Moustiers-Sainte-Marie village. It's a very cute village which is on the list of the 150 most beautiful villages in France. 4) La route des crêtes, meaning the "Ridge road". This road is very impressive, and watch out if you're scared of heights! It's a loop that follows the cliffs of the Verdon gorge where there are world-renowned climbing spots. There are several breathtaking viewpoints along it.”

Nature Preserve
“Massif de l’Esterel, a coastal volcanic mountain range of red-ochre rocks, is one of the most stunning natural places of the Côte d’Azur. The Massif has lots of good walking trails and is also perfect for cycling and mountain biking. Along the coast road, you can visit small towns and resorts such as Agay, with its sheltered bay and a lovely beach, Le Trayas, and Mandelieu-la-Napoule with its harbor and 14th-century castle. Driving distance from Cabris: 45 min ”
