e-borghi travel 5, Landscapes and villages: Crossborder: Southern France, between nature and humankind

France of culture, of cuisine and great wines: a guarantee if you search for the history and the tastes that are always surrounded by a unique charm. The France of landscapes shaped by the nature and by human creativity is less famous. In the Southern France you can see unexpected villages that are set in amazing landscapes. You can start your discovery with leaving from the gorge of the river Verdon in the Upper Provence and reach Gruissan in Oxcitaine. The river Verdon has shaped the most impressing canyon of Europe, it stretches for 25 kilometres with walls that are 1500 metres high surrounded by a lush vegetation. The most interesting part is between Pont du Galates and Castellane, a Medieval village that can be reached by crossing the Roman Pont du Roc which has been the only passage for centuries. A stop at the restaurant of the hôtel du Grand Levant is a must, it’s an historical restaurant with a nice outdoor space that looks out on the main square. A 200 metres high hill dominates the village and on the top of it there is the Chapel of Notre Dame du Roc.
