CASTELLANE, Domaine du Verdon

Rhone Valley/Provencal Alps4.1

Selected because of its situation on the edge of the Gorges du Verdon and its proximity to the pretty town of Castellane. This large Castels site lies in a pretty valley right on the edge of the stunning Gorges. Walking distance of the centre of the town it has attractive stone-faced buildings and spacious areas by the River Verdon. The river is very low most of the time but the dam is opened twice a week and it fills up for canoeing and kayaking. It is probably the best site in the area, but some of the sanitary blocks could do with updating and the grounds could do with a little more TLC. The lively atmosphere and good programme of entertainment make it an ideal spot for active families.
