Above the small rustic castle of Cairo (18th century) which belonged to General Massena, we note from Tourettes Sur Loup (400m) a massive mountain rounded profile: the Puy de Naouri (1024m), site of any privileged Western Riviera. The proposed circuit performs a complete tour of the assembly that reveals the watchful eyes of centuries of human occupation.

    I also post this on Internations activity group Monaco walk and talk, there are 5 people registered there. As with many things in life today, people can't always commit until the last minute. Hence Car sharing is normally resolved the day before . All these walks are normally well marked, but hey if we go off track a little, does it really matter as long as we have a pleasant day...

    With half a dozen adults you will be able to figure it out and for your piece of mind, just print off the details and map found on the link below. You cant go wrong then...errrr .... http://www.randoxygene.org/pge/rando_pe/affiche_rando.php?rubrique=1&zone=3&rando=28

    Have a good one !

    Hi again,

      Irene, I'm NOT going to be there either - I'm in Finland. I did the hike myself last weekend It's easy enough to follow direct from the carpark - but it requires good footwear as theres streams to cross...or maybe I got lost??

      May 22, 2013

  • Irene R.

    Hi Marjie, thanks for info. I will definitely be there. Weather is great and I need to move!!! As you know, I am new to the group. Is meeting time always 9:30am?
    Shame you can't make it!!!
    Will anybody know the way? Last time from Peille..., without you being there,we somehow went the wrong way to start with.
    Regards, Irene

    May 22, 2013

  • Marjie H.

    Yes Tim, check the calendar for the 26th I am leaving thursday 23rd for UK so wont be able to join you for this one

  • Irene R.

    I also wish to have re-confirmation for our hike in Tourettes, Sunday 26.05.= mother's day in France. I would like to join. My husband Ash might also come along. Time of meeting at car park?

    I will re post the Tourettes Hike for next Sunday.
    Thunder storms make coastal walk unattractive too. The Great Gatsby wins the day methinks. Until next time peeps! M x

    The day has dawned with thunder, lightning and light rain in Villefranche. Doesn't look like a good day for a mountain hike!

  • catiplume

    Sorry, I can't make it. May be next week. Have a good time!Cathy

  • Emma

    I don't know if there are still people looking for a ride. I can fetch people at Cagnes-sur-mer.
    By the way, Catiplume, thanks for sending me your cultural programme. Unfortunately, I will not be in Nice these days.

  • Anders Jørgen Vestergaard M.

    Hi, I go from Antibes / Juan-Les-Pins by car.
    I will contact Angela by mail for car pool.

  • Angela D.

    My husband and I will be heading to the hike from Juan-Les-Pins in our rented car. There are three free spaces in the back if anyone wants to come to the Juan-Les-Pins train stop or if there is a easier meeting point let me know, we are very new to the area. We've decided not to bring our dog on our first hike. Email at [masked]

    May 16, 2013

  • Mirko C.

  • Angela D.

    Is it alright to bring our dog to enjoy the walk as well? She needs to get some exercise as well.

    May 15, 2013

    • Marjie H.

      Angela, dogs are welcome as long as they don't get under everyones feet. If he/she is well behaved I doubt that would be a problem

      May 15, 2013

  • Irene R.

    Hi there, well, it just started raining cats and dogs...
    I will be travelling tomorrow (into more rain) and only back Sunday.
    So I won't be able to make it this time which is a shame. Have fun all of you. Kind regards, Irene

    May 15, 2013

  • Marjie H.

    Yes Irene correct, it is the large parking on the bend before you get to the Village - There is what used to be that British run restaurant 'Le Relais de Coches' opposite it, Virettes is a residential area to the east of the parking.

    A little group consciousness may be needed for the sunshine guarantee as my powers of influence appear to be on the wane ...

    best time to assess, Saturday
    Until then...

  • Irene R.

    Dear Marjie, I really enjoyed my first walk with you last Sunday. Was a very nice and happy group and really beautiful nature!!! Thank you. Am not sure if I can join coming Sunday as we might not be back from our Geneva trip yet. If we are, I will definitely come along.
    I know Tourettes pretty well. Do you mean the first big parking just before the village on the right coming up from Vence?
    Also..., never heard of "... small road east of Virettes...". Where is Virettes? Kind regards, Irene

    May 14, 2013

  • Indigo

    Hi, I would like to join the walk. Keep fingers crossed for the weather !!!!

    Sunshine guarantee assumed to be operating as usual Marji!
