We didn't do much walking but even so we could see how stunning this place is. Mind you, it was exciting enough venturing down the narrow road which only had a couple of passing places.Navacelles itself is a beautiful village as well albeit that it can get full of cars in the season.
This is a site seeing must if you are in the area. We drove to the Baume Auriol where there is an Information Centre and the best viewing point to look down on to the Cirque de Navacelles. We then booked a seat at the restaurant which overlooked the landscape, an excellent vantage point. The view is what could be... 更多
A wonderful natural geographic formation, caused by the Vis River which still flows through the gorge. The view from the top where there is a visitor centre and exhibition which describes the ox bow formation is interesting though only in French. There is a brief film also and a decent restaurant and craft shop. The road down to Navacelles a... 更多
The cirque is located in the middle of what appears to be an old volcano. Descending to the village by car is already a great experience, but as soon as you exit your vehicle down below and go into the small pool there will be a much greater experience in the form of a series of waterfalls and pools which... 更多
As a former resident of the southwest US, this is not something I expected to see in the south of France. My friend took me there to see if it reminded me of the Grand Canyon. Not at all, actually. Beautiful in other ways. Highly recommended.
This place is worth a visit, the road down to the village is steep so hold your nerve you will be rewarded with a wonderful bit of history. we found it spectacular and beautiful and spent a few hours exploring. this review does not do it justice you have to see it for yourselves.
Upon reading many of the reviews on here we were understandably nervous about the driving down in to the gorge, however if you are a competent driver it is not a difficult drive as long as you do not have a fear of heights. The view points on either side of the gorge are nice and give a good view,... 更多
The view takes your breath away....like a French mini grand canyon. The views are superb from both sides. Take the trouble to visit the village and the waterfall....you can get to see the waterfall from below if you are a little adventurous! DO NOT miss out on visiting Moulin de la foux. It is where the Vis river emerges from... 更多
When I planned my europe trip this was on my list of places that if we got time we had to do. Well lucky me and even luckier for the wife. I plugged it into the GPS without telling the wife and let her drive that morning. Yes I know it was both evil and dangerous but she is a... 更多
A stunning cirque in the Gorge de la Vis, formed by a big loop in the river that has long ago been cut, creating a rocky island in a sea of green grass. Viewed from the edge, it is breathtaking. The roads in and out are exciting (!) but it's well worth the drive to visit the village at the... 更多
