Castillon lake

In the heart of the Verdon regional nature reserve, just a few kilometres from your Sandaya campsite in Castellane, Lake Castillon comprises an area of around 500 hectares of turquoise water that'll put a real sparkle in your eye! Created by the water held back by the Castillon dam, the second-largest lake in the Verdon Valley at Saint-André-les-Alpes provides a really special setting for enjoying the water beneath the sunshine of Provence!

Your holiday rental accommodation close to Castillon lake

From your Sandaya campsite in Castellane, the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, if you follow the course of the Verdon you'll be taken straight to Lake Castillon. Bathing here with your family or friends is even lovelier! The southern part of the lake can be explored from island to island, through the emerald water just a few minutes away from your tent or mobile home. Here, your campsite in the great outdoors has a comprehensive range of activities for the whole family: canoeing on the campsite's little lake, a boulodrome for having a go at what is the locals' favourite sport, a multisports ground, a playground, free kids' clubs and you can also try your hand at fishing! After a day's bathing in the Verdon Gorges or in Lake Castillon, come and sit yourself down at the campsite restaurant, which has a varied menu that you can enjoy on the terrace. At the end of the day, take a relaxing break outside, where there's garden furniture that comes with your family mobile home, and where you'll take in unobstructed views of the gorgeous landscapes of Haute-Provence! Fancy the idea of enjoying the pleasure of being in the water for a bit longer? Then head for the campsite's water park, where the turquoise swimming pools await you! Little campers will also be able to enjoy racing down the multi-lane waterslide, while baby swimmers will be splashing around beneath the fun parasol in the children's playground. Welcome to Provence!
