But one of the standout sights nearby is l’Abbaye du Thoronet, a Cistercian abbey from the 12th Century. It’s in an impressive state of preservation and displays great architectural expertise - for instance, the acoustics of the church were designed to complement the monks singing by creating long echoes.

La Plaine des Maures is just to the east of Gonfaron and is a natural reserve encompassing a river system, perfect for tranquil walks and nature spotting.

    -Gorges du Verdon. This remarkable natural landmark is compared to America’s Grand Canyon. People come to this spectacular stretch of the Verdon River for hikes, bike rides and kayak trips. If you’re a climber then it’s an essential day out, as the canyon offers countless pillars, sheer cliffs and walls, with more than 1000 different courses across a wide range of difficulty grades. The gorge is 25 kilometres in length and at one point has a depth of 700 metres.
