Special Offer: 13 September - 25 October

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in La Verdiere - LES BASTIDES DU VERDON

For 6, private fenced garden, tourism hub, Verdon, lakes, countryside

The BASTIDES HOTELIERES DU VERDON : Is a domain of 40 hectares composed of 4 very comfortable Bastides (Provencal country house). Property typical of Provence where we made a point of preserving biodiversity and the traditional essences, (thyme, lavenders, rosemary), crossed by a river that follows its small valley and stretches over from the village entrance (300 m), La Verdière up to the frontier of Varages village on 2 km.

Our 4 Provencal country houses:

Les Lavandes and Les Bles will welcome you in a charming atmosphere in a holm oak cocoon not overlooked; you will be enchanted by the scents of Provence and rocked by the birds' songs. Les Chardons and L'Insolite will invite you to discover the happy union between the modern world and the country, as they benefit from a free view over nature as far as your eyes can see, under the benevolent eye of La Verdiere, one of the most typical Provençal villages and its castle that overlooks our valley. In the morning, you will witness a file of bunnies that come to drink in the river of the valley of our estate before the amazed eyes of your children.

Our offer: Between the hotel and the gite, 'Les Bastides Hotelieres du Verdon' managed to combine the quality and comfort of a hotel service with the freedom of a private house.

The weekly rates include water, gas, electricity, high speed Internet Wi-fi, sheets with beds made upon arrival, bathroom linen, burglar and fire alarm, safe and private heated pool.

Free baby package (- 3 years old). Cleaning upon request. Suitable for disabled persons.

Private enclosed garden of 1500 sq.m. Pets allowed upon request.

Activities and leisures: visit of the Chateau de La Verdiere, pride of the Verdiere inhabitants and its owner that restored it very well (a must-see). Some of our specialities from courses like the 'Route des Lavandes', the Wine Road, etc. The Aups truffles, the lavender honey, the olive oil, our wines from the hillside of the Var to the Cotes de Provence, our colourful markets, our craftwork and its making process that you can discover in our workshops like the Moustiers and Varages faience, Salernes' terra cottas and other 'Santons', traditional products famous in the entire world. The thermal baths and casino of Greoux-les-Bains, the Aix-en-Provence festivals, the Museum of Quinson, regional golfs, the Saubt-Maximim basilica... The Verdon gorges with its lakes and numerous water and outdoors activities, its international Museum of Prehistory, etc.

Your stay being dedicated to idleness and relaxation or to nautical sports and nature going through discovers of cultural, archaeological or traditional aspects, the Haut-Var in Verdon will satisfy all your desires (see activities around below).

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.

The Verdon Regional Park: it stretches on both sides of Verdon, emerald snake that crosses the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the Var. Below the Valensole Plateau, endless mosaic of fields with typical colours (wheat, lavender, sunflowers, poppies, olive trees), the Lake of Sainte-Croix with its luminous turquoise reflects will offer all the nautical activities in a natural environment sweeping with beauty. You will access it by a series of perched villages with an unquestionable charm, that keep our traditions and specialities under the almost ritual protection of an ancestral castle, often renovated in the purest tradition like the Chateau of La Verdiere.

On 180 000 hectares and 44 towns, the diversity and the excessiveness of landscapes break the records! It stretches on both sides of the Verdon river, emerald snake that crosses the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the Var. Below the Valensole Plateau, endless mosaic of fields with typical colours (wheat, lavender, sunflowers, poppies, olive trees), the lake of Sainte-Croix and its bright turquoise reflection offers all the water and open air activities you dream of in a stunning surrounding. You will access it by a series of perched villages with an unquestionable charm, that keep our traditions and specialities under the almost ritual protection of an ancestral castle, often renovated in the purest tradition like the Chateau of La Verdiere. You will be the witnesses of a still preserved nature where all the biodiversity of the Regional Park of Verdon invites you to discover the countryside of Provence. A few kilometers away from La Verdière, starting from the Quinson Lake in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, you will go up the Verdon Gorge, one of the most beautiful canyons of the world and discover the Lake of Sainte Croix, a unique and beautiful emerald blue lake, overlooked by the prettiest perched villages of Hautes-Alpes which you will pass by to go to the region of Var; villages such as Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Tourtour, Cotignac, Aups and so many others which the reputation make us so proud. The Regional Park of Verdon proposes all the nature and water activities, from the calmest to the most extreme ones in an environment whose reputation as high place of tourism is no longer to make.

All along the Verdon: Border between the region of Var and the region of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the river of Verdon is long turquoise strip. It is a beautiful wild river where the lovers of extreme sports will find what they are looking for (rafting, hydrospeed, canoying, floating, kayak, rock-climbing or gliding). You will experience exceptional moments in the bed of the river! The Verdon canyon is a big gash that snakes through 21 km, the biggest in the world after the one in Colorado, where it got its nickname of 'Grand Canyon'. From the Haut-Verdon, if you leave the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence behind to enter the region of Var, you will find the incredible road of Corniche Sublime which access is made by a bridge of 110 m which steps over the canyon and is the perfect place to jump for the lovers of bungee-jumping. The bridges take you higher than 500 m above the deep Verdon gorge. You will find there the most beautiful panorama. After your spectacular journey above this breathtaking canyon, you will discover the green river which opens out to a unique area: the lake of Sainte-Croix, a stunning place that cannot be ignored. A big bridge steps over the water to connect one bank to the other. Downhill, the quiet streams of the river Verdon make peacefully their way through the low gorges to the quiet area of Quinson where you cannot miss the National Museum of Prehistory. Further down, you will see the lake of Esparron you can access with a pedalo in 5 or 6 hours. Plenty of other stunning sites are waiting for your visit. They won't be as extravagant as the deep gorges, but you will enjoy the softness of the low Verdon gorges where you will have the pleasure to swim in its green water. The fresh water of Verdon, after a last bridge, leaves the Var and the Alps to join the Durance, the Rhône and eventually the see.

The sea and the mountain: the most daring people will find 1:30 away maximum to the north, the mountain landscapes and ski resorts of the Hautes-Alpes after the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence that take their spring 10 km away from La Verdiere, which the Verdon rift makes the frontier with the Var and 1 hour away to the South, the Mediterranean Sea, the beaches of Saint-Tropez, the Calanques of Cassis, the Porquerolles and Bendor islands, etc.

Geographical situation: as the Wind Rose, it offers you a stay in the country near the lakes (10 min), at the gates of the sea (1 hour) and the mountain (1:30) going through the most picturesque landscapes of Provence and its mountains, such as Sainte-Baume and La Sainte-Victoire, so precious for Paul Cezanne and Marcel Pagnol.
