« The Alps can die here with dignity » is what Victor Hugo said about the Esterel, the last relief before the sea. The ragged landscape of this red massif stands in contrast with the deep blue water of the Mediterranean Sea, edged with sheer creeks. A big part of this 32.000 ha massif is listed as a « Natura 2000 » site. The great number of signposted tracks will invite you to a hike along the sea or towards the summits, like the Pic de l'Ours or the Mont Vinaigre, its culminating point. Hikers will be rewarded by impressive viewpoints on the Côte d'Azur and the Provence.
