Beyond the Riviera private tour is a journey into the countryside of the Côte d'Azur - French Riviera, far from the flashy coastline.


The private tour can start with the discovery of Grasse where you will be able to visit the perfume factory and its museum free of charge. Grasse is considered the world's perfume capital. In fact, the region with its favorable climate, strong flower industry and presence of many local perfume factories, contributed to Grasse's worldwide reputation in the perfume industry. Grasse attracted again attention from the general public with the release of the movie “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” in 2006 based on the book “Perfume” by Patrick Süskind.


The private tour continues with the visit of Gourdon, an Eagle's nest village overlooking the Gorges du Loup valley. The view is breathtaking, and Gourdon can be an ideal place for a quick lunch. We continue our private tour to Tourrettes-sur-Loup and have a walk into this beautiful medieval fortified village, perched on a narrow spur of land extending from very rocky hills. 


With our private tour, we will take you to the medieval village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, one of the most beautiful villages in France, home of many artists, like Marc Chagall, Picasso, Renoir and Matisse and others who used to stay and look for inspiration in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Walk through this stunning village and admire the famous art galleries of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Sit down for a drink in one of its cafés or visit the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, a true museum in nature, with modern and contemporary art in all its forms (by Chagall, Giacometti, Léger, Miró and many other artists). 


The Beyond the Riviera (8h) private tour is a scenic drive into the south of France's countryside and an escape from the busy Côte d'Azur - French Riviera. If you're looking for picturesque and perched hill villages, for some dating back to the medieval times, then it's the perfect private tour. It's easy for everyone, but Gourdon and Saint-Paul-de-Vence require some walking. For those who can't walk much, they can stay with the driver-guide or chill-out in a nearby café. 

If you consider to book several day trips with us and Saint-Paul is already included in another tour, then we will replace it by Mougins village in this private tour Beyond the Riviera. You can mention it in the message of the "Request a quote" form ("replace Saint-Paul by Mougins"). Mougins is a medieval and hilltop village, such a charming one that it attracted Pablo Picasso to spend some part of his life there.
