The Verdon Gorge is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. There is so much to do and definitely something for everyone. We went on some brilliant walks and bike rides, spent time swimming in the lake, and visited local vineyards. The...More

The Gorges du Verdon is stunning a must see probably the deepest gorge in Europe. Hire a electric boat, pedalo or kayak to have a peaceful trip into the gorge. The roads are very twisty and not for the feint hearted. Off season is best...More

A spectacular canion with stunning rock walls. Magnificent views by going down D23 (and walking at least a couple hundred meters from the parking area) as well as from Point sublime. Amazing views on the road but drive carefully.

We drove the southern segment, Route de la Corniche Sublime, between Aiguines and Comps-sur-Artuby. The views were certainly good, but I think one side (the north or the south) is probably going to be enough. The road itself was excellent. An anti-clockwise circuit will ensure...More

I think the rentals may have stopped however if not, hiring an electric boat costs €40 euros an hour you can also rent pedaloes and kayaks. An hour is enough to pass the time. Ensure you do as the staff say don't try... More
