The Gorges du Verdon

The Verdon Regional Nature Park, with its architectural heritage packed with natural treasures, will appeal to lovers of nature and exceptional landscapes. Located between Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-MarieThis popular destination is also a wonderful playground for sporting activities in Europe's largest canyon: water sports, climbing, mountain biking, paragliding... the choice is yours. Along the pure, tranquil waters of Lac de Sainte Croix, or perched high on the hills bordering the lake, you can take in the breathtaking views from the medieval villages of Bauduen, Aiguines and Les Salles-sur-Verdon.


A must-see in the region for nature-seeking adventurers: the 400m-long, 80m-high tufa rock overlooking the magnificent village of Cotignac. Here you'll find caves and troglodyte dwellings, culminating in the Gouffre waterfall below the village, just a 15-minute walk along the river. A splendid little spot, cut off from the world, that will delight young and old alike. Before setting off, be sure to visit the Notre-Dame de Grâces sanctuary, which has been welcoming pilgrims - particularly families - for 500 years, to recharge their batteries with the Holy Family.


To begin with, let yourself be drawn into the maze of narrow streets of the old village of Villecroze, listed as a "Village de Caractère du Var". You'll appreciate the natural coolness of the caves and waterfall all the more afterwards. And last but not least, take advantage of the magnificent park planted with Mediterranean species, set deep in the tufa cliffs.
