Gorges du Verdon for chickens

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Cotignac for a couple of weeks in June, and of course we'd like to see the Gorges du Verdon. Although we've driven in Europe dozens of times, we're a bit leery of the vertiginous drops and what appear to be essentially one-car-width roads. So here's my question: is there a way to see some of it, maybe drive a bit and then turn around, or is it once you've started you're in it for the whole 25-km length? Is perhaps one cliff (north or south) easier or a bit wider than the other?

For reference, we've driven the narrow road opposite Mont Ventoux that goes from Malaucene past Brantes to Montbrun numerous times and have been just fine. We've also driven narrow roads all through Tuscany and parts of Umbria.

Seems a shame to be in the Var and miss this spectacular place. But I'd also like to avoid freaking out if possible.

Thanks.
