This road often welcomes cows which lay down on the asphalt the time of a nap. On the 10km which now separate you from the village of Asco, the road twists and turns along the river : you will find numerous bathing spots and natural swimming pools, 'indicated' by groups of vehicules which park along the road.
After the village of Asco, you will find an amazing natural swimming pool under a stone Genoese bridge (see point of reference on the map) :
In the village of Asco, from the "Auberge Acropolis", continue on the D147 for 1,6 km, then turn left at the junction going down to the car park near the stone Genoese bridge. You will find other natural swimming pools by going up or down the river on foot from the Genoese bridge.
Warning: diving into a river can turn out to be a very dangerous activity. Always test the waters first.
