A mythical region with its austere landscapes, the Verdon is definitely worth a trip. The Verdon Gorges, deep cracks that plunge into emerald waters, are unique in Europe. Here one observes raw nature with exuberant geology and contrasting colors. The breathtaking ‘ route des crêtes’ is an experience in itself but a kayak trip down the river or a walk along one of the aerial footpaths is absolutely thrilling.
Lavender country, the Verdon and the Haut-Var region harbor villages with great character such as Riez, Aiguines, Bauduen, Castellane and Moustiers Sainte Marie, as well as more authentic sites in magnificent settings such as the lake of Sainte Croix and Esparron.
