Estérel is the most photogenic Massif I've met so far. The camera can only flash when we discover the Mediterranean Sea which is intermingled with these red rocks. Like most of the creeks along the Corniche d'Or, the Calanque des Anglais has remained wild. But what makes it an exceptional place to take pictures is undoubtedly its fig trees throwing themselves into the sea or its driftwood.

I love going to the Rocher de Roquebrune, alone or with friends. I confess that I go there more often alone because I live in the village and after work it allows me to clear my head. Getting up there after 45 minutes to climb it to finally enjoy this unique view of the region ... Great !!! And for the less sporty the climb can also be done by walking... So it would be a shame to deprive oneself !

The Dramont is one of my favorite spots. The access is very easy and it only takes 10 minutes to appreciate this magnificent view of the bay, its Île d'Or as well as the mountain massifs such as the Estérel or the Roquebrune rock. "My advice: come at the end of the day to enjoy the sunset and the cities that light up".

The Lake of Saint-Cassien is a perfect place to refresh yourself away from the crowds of the Coast...And when the lake becomes a mirror, then these moments are magical ! With a kayak, you'll feel like you're somewhere else. A beautiful natural setting !

This view represents for me an ideal photo spot because it gathers everything you can dream of on the French Riviera, a beautiful walk in the heart of the red rocks of the Esterel, a clear view of the sea and above all a feeling of freedom when you want to escape the crowds of beaches in summer ! This walk is easy to access, everyone can enjoy it, adults and children alike !

Ah, the Pont des Tuves... This is a superb place that has to be earned ! Because yes, to reach this timeless place, you must first cross a long winding path. But the effort is not in vain, on the contrary ! We discover the Pont des Tuves like an explorer...eyes filled with wonder by this magnificent vestige and the translucent water that surrounds it. An Instagram treasure on the borders of the Var !

Blavet's Gorge is, above all, my whole childhood. Just a stone's throw from my home, I was able to explore this magnificent site in every nook and cranny. Dug in red volcanic rocks, it is an atypical place offering a hike full of freshness but also surprises like the Grotte du Muréron with the possibility to climb its cliffs.

There is a walk that we particularly like to recharge our batteries and take pictures, it's the vinegar mountain ! It is a small circuit which on its highest point, will offer you a panoramic view from Cannes to Fréjus with the sea view. Of course this magic moment is always accompanied by a small photo session because my beautiful Luna likes to pose in front of the lens and even more when the scenery lends itself to it. I invite you to do it and maybe we'll have the opportunity to meet there !

Port Fréjus is a place that I love to take pictures of because it reminds me of Sunday walks when I was little and I discovered the world with my child's eyes. And it's this same wonder that I keep today when I take pictures: I'm always looking for the best angle. And in Port Fréjus, between the boats and the details that make them up, the different colours that are present, the quays and of course the sea, there are a thousand and one ways to reinvent yourself and make a new discovery with each visit.
