La Verdiere in the Verdon park: La Verdière is one of the most beautiful perched villages, typical from the Haut-Var, nestled against its castle very well restored by its owner who tried to keep its traditional character (visit possible), on the hilltop, secluded from main tourist roads.
When you arrive at La Verdière, you are stunned by the defensive aspect it features. Placed in concentric pattern around the heart of the village, the houses rise like ramparts, high, close to one another, with their windows looking like embrasures. This shape is probably inherited from the Middle age of the religious wars, when villages used to gather to resist the attacks. The entry in La Verdière offers more tranquillity, with blooming frontages, peaceful shops, and the laughters that escape from the houses. The streets are pleasant, intricate and narrow, but nevertheless easily accessible. They slightly lead you to the castle. The castle of La Verdière is a private estate, listed historical site since 1986 and skilfully restored by its owner in the purest tradition. Every summer, this history lover opens the heavy doors of this prestigious fortress, on the footsteps of our past. La Verdière is a small village located in the middle of the woods of Haut-Var where you will get the chance to hike through many paths! A few kilometres further, the Verdon Gorge or the lakes of Sainte-Croix will offer you all the water sports and nature you like.
