Domaine Du Verdon Holiday Park

Sitting on the banks of the Verdon River and surrounded by spectacular river valleys and rigged gorges is Domain Du Verdon. This campsite is probably one of the best around for people who need a base for exploring some really special countryside. The site itself is a large park and has a busy atmosphere with lots of activities to keep you entertained if you are staying on site. There are some really good facilities here including a helpful reception, a useful laundry and a good selection of places to eat on site.

There are 500 pitches to choose from here, a great selection of either tents or chalets. The tents are two bedrooms with kitchen and living area as well as outdoor patio furniture and a gas barbecue which makes for great family meals on warm sunny evenings.

If you prefer a few more creature comforts there are a variety of chalets, either two or three bedrooms with a double bedroom in all types. Each chalet has a private shower and loo as well living space with an additional two sofa beds if you need them. The kitchen is fully equipped (sorry no dishwasher Dad) and each chalet has patio furniture and barbecues.

Facilities & Activities at Domaine Du Verdon

There are lots of activities to keep you busy on site including the three pool complex with a toddler’s pool and water slides and chutes. Sun loungers are also available if you’re slightly less energetic. If you’re a more energetic person why not take part in the aerobics classes that happen under the lovely green trees. You can also play tennis, table tennis, volleyball basketball and of course boules which is great for organising your own Olympic tournament. Evenings sees the activity continue with a series of events and theme nights offered in the bar and of course discos, with a choice of either indoor or outdoor events (how continental is that).

There are lots of choices on site for feeding your tribe. There’s a great mini-market selling fresh produce (lovely bread guys) as well as a pizzeria (French?) a creperie (French!) and a good restaurant where they serve local dishes (very French!).

Outside of the camp you should look to explore the river with it’s amazing gorge. 14 miles long and up to 200 feet deep it’s called the Grand Canyon of Europe and you really shouldn’t miss it. Remember Domain Du Verdon is actually on the river bank so you can spend countless hours just paddling and exploring this prettiest of rivers. Locally towns such as Castellane are worth checking out with their selection of wonderful cafes, restaurants and street artists.

    The location is a dream, the scenery is joy to wake up to every morning. The pool is nice for a cool down or if you prefer you can try the nearby river. You can’t go in the swimming pool with baggy shorts, so just be aware. The negatives? The showers were a little erratic.

    While it is a distant drive, the roads are safe and the scenery is beautiful.
