After a great tour where we learned about its former owner, Antoine d'Abbadie, a 19th-century scientist/scholar who spoke 14 languages and built the observatory, Karen and I decided to take a hike on a part of the Sentier Littoral (Coastal Trail) we hadn't seen before.
Looking inland you get occasional glimpses of the Chateau d'Abbadia along with verdant pastures sprinkled with small forests.
Overall, we walked a bit less than two hours, largely because we did a fair amount of exploring and picture-taking. My guess is that the loop along the cliffs, then back along the road, would be about an hour and a half. I'll update this blog if we decide to do it before we leave.
The only other people we saw on our hike were a few runners. If you're in the area and would like a non-strenuous hike, this is a great one. You can make it as long or as short as you like. I'd have to say that this is our favorite part of the Sentier Littoral.
