Les Gorges Du Toulourenc

You can enjoy there a family walk, walking in the water, and discover the magnificent gorges of the Toulourenc. Of course, you can also enjoy a relaxing and sunbathing time on one of the numerous small beaches you will find. You must not forget this is a fragile site that you have to respect.

This site is accessible to all, we recommend you to take used shoes, a gourde and snack!

A piece of advice: in summer, the river is crowded with people enjoying aquatic walk. You should go there soon in the morning.
