We visited the lovely old hill top villages, and included the Fragonard Perfume factory museum experience. It was really enjoyable, and educational. Gourdon is very high, and as I dislike heights I was a bit worried. However, the village car park is safely cocooned, as is the short walk to the tiny village on the mountain peak. The view is sensational, I stayed away from the edge, and was fine. The drive up might be slightly worrisome for those who are afraid of heights, but you could shut your eyes. There were 4 in our trip, so we were collected in a regular saloon car. Our driver was friendly and helpful.

It was great to be able to see so many beautiful places in such a short time! In particular, Guhe-dong and Saint-Paul-Vence were so beautiful~ The guide was so kind to explain and drive! Highly recommended!
