Étape 1 : de Saint-Raphaël aux Esterets du Lac — Le GR 49
Chloé Perceval planned a hike.
August 23, 2021
A very beautiful first stage, which takes you from the seaside to Saint-Raphaël in the Esterets du Lac, offering you superb panoramas over the region.The tour starts at the Saint-Raphaël SNCF station, a stone's throw from the seafront. The first kilometers take you through the colorful streets of this pretty little town. The first five kilometers of this GR take you through a few residential areas, before bringing you to the Col des Sacs, at an altitude of 156 meters.From there and up to the Malpey forest house, you can enjoy magnificent panoramas over Saint-Raphaël, Fréjus and Mont Vinaigre, with the Mediterranean as a backdrop. You are in the heart of the Estérel volcanic mountain range. Between the red of the earth and the clear blue of the sea, the decor is simply exceptional!In Adrets-de-l'Esterel, the panorama opens up to Cannes, the Lérins Islands and the Estérel massif. We really take full eyes. A little later, you pass under the A8 motorway and arrive at Esterets du Lac, a small quiet village where you will find something to eat and a place to spend the night.
