Justly named ‘The Grand Canyon of Europe’, the Gorges du Verdon is one of the most spectacular sights you will ever see. The natural beauty of this amazing landscape of river canyons and blue-green water just takes your breath away.
Take a drive around the Gorges du Verdon, stopping off for the many photo opportunities along the way, then park up for a swim alongside the Lake of Sainte Croix (Lac de Sainte Croix). There are many uncrowded spots around the lake where you can park easily and access small beaches where you can then sit for hours at the water’s edge in total peace and tranquility.
Around the lake there is a variety of watersports on offer. The area is also very popular with walkers and ramblers, as there are lots of trails and paths through the pine forests that edge around the lake. If you are just looking for a fabulous day away from it all, this is the perfect place for you.
The colour of the water is worth the trip alone!
