Gourdon is located in the hills between Cannes and Grasse. Getting to Gourdon is an adventure itself! Gourdon is the archetype of a perched village, sitting like an eagle’s nest at the end of a rocky spur, enjoying a truly exceptional panoramic view over more than 80 kilometres of coastline from Theoule sur Mer to Nice. It also forms a remarkably harmonious ensemble of white stone-built medieval houses, nestling around the feudal castle. Inside the village you will find a good selection of charming shops, ateliers and restaurants. But the highlight of the village is without doubt the castle, with its imposing round and squared towers, its arrow slits and Renaissance entrance gate, its cobbled inner courtyard and its gargoyles and vaulted hallways, not forgetting its monumental 14th century fireplace. Inside, you can visit superb gardens laid out by Le Notre, Versailles’ landscape gardener: a true Eden on the earth. 30 km away from the hotel – 40’ drive.
