We did took the green route (de la vierge). A nice one hour walk with the boys, although they don't like walking, they did like this trail. Nice views, fairytale scenery. My 12 year old son even wanted to go back!

This is a lovely and very interesting place. Quite an adventure for the children too, scrambling over the rocks and exploring the wooded glades. There was plenty of flora and fauna to spot too. There are short walks and long walks and we didn't come...More

The forest is quite exceptional with its huge rocks all over. Kids loved finding caves and hideouts there. The view over the river up high over the cliff is really beautiful. The walk is well marked and easy to follow.

The trails are very well indicated. You need some condition because now and then you have to climb up some stones (but not dangerous). We did the Corniche walk with great views down the river + the labyrinth walk. It is a peaceful place with...More

We explored the Bois de Paiolive with children aged from 3-15. At first we were disappointed - we pulled into the first car park and went to look at the first two rock formations, called 'L'ours et le lion' I think. Nice enough piles of...More
