Saint-Croix Lake, a must-visit during your holiday!
Created by the construction of a dam on the Verdon river, the Saint-Croix Lake today forms a vast stretch of water, sparkling in its characteristic emerald colour. This sublime beauty spot is a veritable wellspring of life, leisure and bathing, its water as pure as its scenery is grandiose. You’ll never tire of exploring the beauty of its incredible panoramas, when camping with Sandaya!

Renewed and revitalised, discover true rejuvenation in the midst of nature! Comfortably settled in your modern cottage or on an authentic camping pitch, make the most of the sports grounds, the free entertainment and the vast bathing area with swimming pools for all, waterslides and waterfalls. The first step on your journey of adventure: the Saint-Croix Lake, its myriad beaches and outdoor activity centres for the whole family!
Visit the Saint-Croix Lake with the family
Bathing, watersports and exploring with your toes in the water, the Saint-Croix Lake is the spot you’ve been dreaming of to unpack your bags with the family. It’s the moment to organise a superb camping holiday!
From your holiday village in the heart of Provence, you simply need to follow the Gorges du Verdon until the Saint-Croix Lake comes into view. With watersports centres and equipped beaches a-plenty, you’re going to be spoilt for choice! Our favourite spot? La Cadéno-Plage, a beach near the north-eastern tip of the lake. A small secret beach perfect to relish a lazy moment, but which also offers canoes, standup paddleboards and pedal-boats so you can head off for a trip on the water all together!
Visit Saint-Croix Lake as a couple
If the Saint-Croix Lake is so well-known, it’s above all thanks to the enchanting viewpoints it offers its visitors. Picnic hamper and beach towel at the ready, head off for a tour of the Verdon’s most beautiful lake on foot, by bike, in your car but above all... just the two of you!
Make sure you take time out to explore the lakeside villages. In Les Salles-sur-Verdon, discover the origins of the Saint-Croix Lake. In Bauduen, keep your eyes peeled to spot the cave-dwellings up on high. And in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”, simply wander the narrow streets that cling to the cliffside. When camping by the Verdon, your holiday will have a whole new world as its backdrop!
