Your holiday rental on the doorstep of the Gorges du Verdon

Astride the French departments of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the Var, the Verdon gradually cut its dramatic path through the landscape to offer us the fabulous panorama we know today. Wending its way between some of the most beautiful villages of Provence such as Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Castellane or Rougon, the Gorges du Verdon enchant the thousands of visitors who come to admire its beauty and enjoy the white water sports for which it is renowned. Your Domaine du Verdon campsite in Castellane, nestling in the heart of its green setting, makes the perfect base camp for heading off to conquer the Gorges du Verdon! On site, your campsite with water park offers an unspoilt view of the wild natural environment of the Préalpes d’Azur. What better way to admire the lush greenery of its mountains than from the top of the multi-lane slides! After a refreshing dip in the turquoise swimming pools, or a first swimming lesson in the children’s aquatic playground, return to relax in the comfort of your holiday accommodation. Fully-equipped mobile home under the trees, camping pitch on the banks the Verdon... between river and mountain, you’ll be able to make the most of the campsite’s very special natural setting!

Activities in the Gorges du Verdon

With its 50km of canyon, the Verdon is a life-sized adventure playground created by nature, one that campers of all ages can’t fail to appreciate to its very fullest. A day spent canyoning with the family in its gorges, an expedition climbing its majestic cliffs or a canoe-kayak trip as far as the sublime Sainte-Croix Lake... Whichever activity you prefer, you couldn’t dream of a more beautiful setting to enjoy it!

Walking through the Gorges du Verdon

Set off on foot along one of the many hiking trails open to all and discover the incredible landscape of the Gorges du Verdon! The Martel path is perhaps the best known, a 15km route through the heart of the Gorges from the Point Sublime below Rougon to the Maline chalet. Experienced hikers will appreciate the Imbut trail that crosses the wild unspoilt nature of the Verdon Natural Regional Park. If you’re hiking with the family try the Lézard footpath, a 2-hour walk perfect for soaking up the immense beauty of the area. Take a break on the banks of the river for an appetising picnic and a refreshing dip in the crystal waters.

Canoeing in the Gorges du Verdon

Setting off from your campsite at Castellane choose between the many watersports centres that offer an opportunity to discover the Verdon from the river itself. With the family or just the two of you, paddle downstream aboard a canoe and enjoy some the most beautiful views of the breathtaking Gorges du Verdon. Caves, natural beaches, diving spots...
