Take a tour of French Village of Gourdon in Gourdon, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The sheer, forested cliffs of Provence, France give way to the sky-high village of Gourdon. Also called the Eagle's Nest, Gourdon sits 500 meters above the river Loup and gives sprawling views of rolling hills and the Mediterranean Sea. The town has gained a reputation for its incredible vistas and its visitor friendly atmosphere. The beautiful medieval Town Hall, decorated with a small but stately French insignia, is a testament to the steadfast nature of this ancient town. The small medieval streets contain many beautiful architectural treasures. To catch a glimpse of this town, travel north from Nice or watch Alfred Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief."
