Below you lies the sublime Saint-Croix Lake, the largest of the Verdon’s lakes, always delighted to welcome you and the family to its emerald waters.

Visit Moustiers-Sainte-Marie as a couple
Amongst the many spots to visit during your camping holiday by the Verdon, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is without doubt one of the most romantic, with its architecture from times past and narrow streets ideal for strolling hand-in-hand. Another good reason to explore the village together, just the two of you.
Renowned around the world for its ceramics, it’s only natural that Moustiers should have its own museum dedicated to the craft.
