Les Lacs du Verdon
DISCOVER THE PROVENCE REGION
Lavender fields stretching as far as the eye can see, villages perched on hill tops: the favourite region of the Impressionists, including famous names such as Cézanne, Van Gogh and Chagall, will charm you with its colours and its rich landscapes.
THE GORGES OF VERDON
Needing no introduction, the Parc Naturel Régional des Gorges du Verdon offers sumptuous landscapes between mountains and vast stretches of water.
Renowned as one of the most beautiful canyons in Europe, it offers activities for everyone and to suit every taste: from the most skittish to the most adventurous. Horseback riding, hiking, or water activities: the whole family will find something to enjoy, for an unforgettable holiday!
What would the pastoral landscapes of Provence be without its lavender fields stretching as far as the eye can see?
The Valensole Plateau offers exceptional landscapes in the heart of the Provencal hinterland: stroll through the narrow streets of this authentic village until you reach the foot of the lavender fields.
The lavender blossoms from mid-June to the end of August: the ideal time to plan your stay at the Lacs du Verdon campsite!
Just an hour from the campsite, immerse yourself in the impressionist canvas of Cézanne!
Why is the city of Aix-en-Provence known as the city of water, city of art? Your stroll through its cobbled streets, with its colourful facades, its private mansions, and its fountains scattered here, there, and everywhere will give you the answer.
Warm and colourful, Aix-en-Provence is the ideal starting point from which to discover Provence in any season.
THE VILLAGES OF LUBERON
A must-see in the southern region: the Luberon Massif and its typical villages.
From the most famous villages of Lourmarin and Forcalquier to the most hillside villages of Bonnieux or Gordes, the Luberon offers an exceptional panorama of landscapes that showcase the beauty of the Provencal hinterland. Most of the charming villages of the Luberon are built on high ground and offer breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. In need of some peace and serenity during your stay.
And to experience Provence in colour, stroll through the old ochre quarries following the Ochre Cliffs of Roussillon trail, or at the Colorado Provençal de Rustrel.
THE VAR COASTLINE
From the campsite, head towards the Var coastline to discover the wonders of a diverse region.
From Hyères to the Massif de l’Estérel, to Saint-Raphaël, make a stopover in the Gulf of Saint Tropez to discover the hillside village of Ramatuelle, the Port of Grimaud, the mythical beach of Pampelonne, and the beaches of Sainte Maxime.
THE PROVENCAL MARKETS
Whether you prefer sweet or savoury doesn’t matter, in Provence you’ll find something to delight every taste bud. Don’t wait any longer to discover the regional produce and the flavours of Provence in the markets near the campsite.
From calissons d’Aix, to cacho-dent (crunchy almonds), perhaps a pompe à huile (oil pump) and oreillette cookies, those with a sweet tooth will have plenty to choose from
And for gourmets who love savoury delights, they won’t be able to resist the classic spreads: tapenade and anchovy paste will go wonderfully with the no less famous wines of Provence. And to continue the meal, succumb to a delicious pistou soup or a dish enhanced an authentic aïoli. The hardest part will be choosing!
