This place is a must go! Breathtaking view of mountains and light blue-turquoise water......take a boat for 1-2 hours to swim through Verdon Canyon, we came around 11 o'clock on Monday morning and were lucky to get the boat without a queue.

We holiday in The Var every summer and for when the temperatures soar a quick drive to Lac de Saint-Croix and the Gorges du Verdon are a must. Rent a paddle boat or electric boat with a canopy and enjoy fantastic swimming and breathtaking views.
