Merveilles Valley

Merveilles Valley is an archaeological treasure ground: more than 40,000 rock engravings to discover…

The very stylized rock engravings in the Vallée des Merveilles mainly represent bull’s heads, teams of horses, weapons and grid patterns that may symbolize fields. Archaeological research shows that this place was probably a sanctuary, where the agro-pastoral populations in the region worshiped the fertility of the land.

Esteron Valley

Do you know there is a discreet bathing site in the heart of the Estéron regional park?

Light green cool water with smooth sands, Esteron Valley is a perfect place for your short escape. Ideal for Sunday outings, this wide swimming spot in the huge lake means you can let the children paddle in peace, while you prepare lunch on one of the picnic tables there.

Estérel Nature Park

The vibrant red of the rocks plunging into the intense blue of the Mediterranean, the beauty of this natural park won’t fail to impress!

The Estérel Nature Park (770 hectares) straddles the municipalities of Mandelieu-La Napoule and Théoule-sur-Mer. A natural area of great interest in terms of its ecology, flora and fauna (34 animal notable heritage species), if you are lucky you may spot a peregrine falcon, Dartford warbler or the European scops owl in the Estérel Nature Park.
