The Verdon Regional Natural Park encompasses seven different tourist landscapes.
The Valensole plateau, stretching over 800km², is internationally known for its lavender fields stretching away as far as the eye can see.
Lake Sainte-Croix was created in 1974, and provides a wide range of activities on the Verdon river (pedal boats, canoes, sailing sports and swimming for young and old)
The Haut-Var, the western Varoise region of the park, sweeps over great plains and forest hills, and is known for its wine-growing domains as well as its gastronomy, centred on the truffle.
The alpine zone of the Park, “les Préalpes de Digne”, is situated on the right bank of the Verdon, and dominates the Valensole plateau and the Verdon canyons with the Mourre de Chanier at 1,930m followed by Mount Chiran (1,905m) and Montdenier (1,750m), all three visible from the hotel.
The Verdon Grand Canyon, in the middle of which is the village of La Palud-sur-Verdon, is the largest and deepest canyon in Europe with depths of up to 700m. It is the biggest tourist attraction in the area, attracting more than a million visitors per year.
The lower canyons of the Verdon, located after Lake Sainte-Croix, are less steep than the grand canyon and are composed of artificial lakes (Lakes Montpezat, Quinson and Esperron).
The role of the Verdon Regional Natural Park is to foster coexistence between human activity and biodiversity preservation, with respect to sustainable development in the area. Discover the Park’s projects on www.parcduverdon.fr
