Make a holiday apartment in Bauduen your home away from home

Listed on HomeAway is a fine collection of holiday homes in Bauduen, a lakeside village, not far from the Gorges du Verdon in Provence’s Var department. On holiday at a Bauduen apartment you can spend your days enjoying fabulous local food, admiring picturebook Provençal scenery or trying out invigorating activities like climbing, rafting and canyoning. Many Bauduen holiday homes afford views of the cobalt blue Lake of Sainte Croix – and for all the old-world charm, accommodation here is designed to meet the needs of modern holidaymakers. Kitchens are thoughtfully appointed and many rentals come with satellite TV and Internet.

Things to do

-Local history. Bauduen is an atmospheric stone village with a delightful lakefront setting, and definitely warrants a walking tour. Other picturesque towns and villages are minutes in the car. There’s Riez, which has a history predating the Romans, and two ancient monuments – the remains of a temple to Apollo, and a baptistery from the 400s, an interesting trace of early Christianity in the region.

-Lake of Sainte Croix. Bauduen is on the south shore of this lake, the water of which is so pure it serves as a local drinking source. In the summer it’s great for watersports like canoeing, windsurfing, sailing and fishing. You can go for a swim at the beach, patrolled by lifeguards, but you can also set off to find a more remote spot around the wooded lakeshore for a quiet afternoon of sunbathing and paddling.

-Gorges du Verdon. This spectacular landform is often billed as “Europe’s Grand Canyon”, and it’s easy to see why. The canyon reached depths of more than 700 metres and a width of up to 1.5 kilometres. It’s been carved by the Verdon River over a few million years, and today attracts sightseers and adventure sport enthusiasts who come for unforgettable kayaking, climbing and hiking experiences.

-Walks. The tourist office in Bauduen provides detailed information about the many local walks for a small fee. The village is within the Verdon Regional Natural Park, and you could follow the route of this river, or set off into the countryside to see the rocky limestone hills, pine forest, lavender fields, olive groves and vineyards for which this region is celebrated.

-Cuisine. Provence is known for its superb fresh produce markets, and you’ll find one in Bauduen on Sundays where you can purchase fruit and veg, as well as a range of other specialities like goats’ cheese and olives. All the classic French amenities are here too, including a superb bakery for fresh bread and pastries like pain au chocolat in the mornings.

Weather in Bauduen

Bauduen has Mediterranean weather, typically warm and dry for much of the year. If you holiday at an apartment in Bauduen between May and October then high outdoor temperatures await, as well as plenty of sunshine. At the height of summer temperatures can soar to the low-30s, and rain only occurs later in the season. Winters don’t bring particularly cold weather – on a January day highs can reach 10 or 11 degrees, but rainfall is a bit more frequent at this time of year.

Travel to Bauduen

To get to your holiday rental in Bauduen, there are three international airports all about the same distance away, and will each take just over 90 minutes to reach from the village. The largest are Marseille (MRS) to the southwest, and Nice (NCE) to the southeast, two of France’s busiest airports and receiving lots of traffic from Britain. Toulon-Hyères (TLN) is also an option, directly south of Bauduen. It’s far smaller than the other two, but still offers year-round links to Britain and some cities in France and Europe.

Extensive gardens with pool and garden furniture. Lots of parking. Villa itself is very well equipped with large TV, comfy sofas and a well stocked kitchen. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of beautiful villages within easy driving distance - Moustiers Ste Marie, Cotignac, Tourtour to name a few. Very good market in Cotignac on a Tuesday. Easy access to lake and its amenities. Very good and easy contact with owner. Would recommend for anyone who wishes to stay in this beautiful part of Provence.

Would definitely recommend visit to the nearby reservoir and gauge as it is stunning. We walked to villecroze for an evening meal approx 20min walk and the restaurants were lovely and it is a special village-if you do decide to walk take torches or ensure phones are charged fully (to use as torches) as its very dark on the walk home! Gardens were quite untidy and could do with a good sorting out and outside was a little like a building site round the back but it didn't effect our stay. Contracts that David insisted on was a little confusing as was in French. He did send translation but I still had to sign the French version so felt it was pointless as I signed a document that may or may not have been altered. Was a little disappointed that there is a final cleaning fee of €70 which I felt was a very steep and if required should be included in the total cost when booking. We decided to clean ourselves which took approx 2hours but we only used one bedroom. Overall lovely place to stay but felt a little cheated by cleaning cost and garden. Sounds a little negative but overall we had a great week and would return!
