Perched high like an observatory, the Gorges du Verdon Hotel & Spa is situated at an altitude of 938m in the heart of the Verdon Canyon.
The Verdon Regional Natural Park pans out from the foot of the hotel. Nature reaches out, in all its splendour, from the famously never-ending fields of lavender through the great Verdon Canyon to Lake Sainte-Croix. Enjoy a 360° view from the hotel’s restaurant terraces, bar, pool and even the Cinq Mondes Spa. As part of these exceptional surroundings, the Gorges du Verdon Hotel & Spa is committed to the protection of the environment.
During your stay we encourage you to discover this wine growing region and its gatronomy, of which one of its emblems is the truffle. Our master restaurateur, François Bargoing, offers traditional, Provençal set menus using fresh, local produce. We have everything to make your stay a memorable one, whether it be well-being, gastronomy or outdoor activities.
Having been awarded the European Ecolabel and the Green Key, and as a member of the Nézeh “zero energy hotel” programme, we strive to minimise waste and to protect the environment on a daily basis.
Our geographical location makes our commitment self-evident.
We have solar panels, which produce 100% of our domestic hot water supply. We limit laundry water by proposing the rental of bathrobes for €3 and the money is donated to the Father Guy Gilbert association. Our teams are trained in this regard and we, in turn, try to increase client awareness. Every small, daily gesture counts…
Leisure activites at the hotel
Our guests have complimentary access to certain areas: the wellness centre (heated pool, steam room and Jacuzzi), the 24-hour fitness room equipped with Technogym, the recreational areas (beach tennis, pétanque, football, basketball, ping pong, table football etc…).
We also have a Spa accredited by “Cinq Mondes” where we offer beauty treatments and massages. Each booking includes a one-hour access to the Spa area (swimming pool, steam room, sauna, chromo therapy shower, herbal tea room etc.)
Regional Natural Park
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
