    There are numerous walks to discover our area which is also a great place for mountain biking, canyoning and climbing. In warmer weather the lake is 20kms away for kayak, windsurfing.

    We are on the edge of The Gorges Du Verdon in south-eastern France (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence), this is a river canyon that is often considered to be one of Europe's most beautiful. The most impressive part lies between the towns of Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, where the river has cut a ravine to a depth of 700 metres through the limestone mass. At the end of the canyon, the Verdon River flows into the artificial lake of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon.

    Because of its proximity to the French Riviera, the gorge is very popular with tourists, who can drive around its rim, rent kayaks to travel on the river, or hike. The limestone walls, which are several hundreds of metres high, attract many rock climbers. It is considered an outstanding destination for multi-pitch climbing.
