Just came back from a wonderful day in the Verdon - super spectacular, beautiful, and a different pace of life in little villages. It was so relaxing. The Verdon canyon is absolutely breathtaking. Pictures don't do the Gorge justice, it's incredible milky-blue green water. Worth...More

If you have a car, this is an amazing trip. The views are absolutely stunning, both from above and down at the water. We were so glad we went. It was too short though! Wish we could have stayed longer and done some kayaking.

The lake is beautiful and is wonderful to swim in. We like the area near Bauduen and les salles. Fun for the kids especially when you hire a boat.

Hi, When you get to the bridge over the gorge and you stand with your back to the gorge the boat rental is only a small distance down the road to your right. Easy to find and visible from the bridge. Regards
