Chloé Perceval planned a hike.
August 23, 2021
This is a very nice stage, which takes you to the pretty fortified village of Mons, passing through pretty viewpoints over the Siagnole gorges.You leave Tourrettes and make a small detour to Fayence, a superb hilltop village where it is good to stroll. Small cobbled streets, stone houses, lush vegetation, Fayence is truly a beautiful place.At the exit of Fayence, you find the GR and continue your way on a tarmac road. A little further on, you take a pretty path that brings you to superb panoramas of the Siagnole gorges. We take full eyes!You continue your journey and cross the Siagnole river before starting your ascent to Mons. You walk among the pines, it is shaded and pleasant. Once again, you arrive in a small village with exceptional charm, perched on a limestone outcrop and from which you have incredible views of the Mediterranean, the Massif des Maures and the Lérin Islands. On a clear day, you can even see Corsica!Those of you who find this stage a bit short can easily combine it with stage 4, and continue your journey to La Roque-Esclapon. Thus, the two stages combined give you a stage of approximately 28 kilometers and 1320 meters of elevation gain.
