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.

Recent Reviews

The apartment was very nice, comfortable, plenty of space and warm!

4 of 5
Esparron was a really pretty village with spectacular views over the lake. Although the weather was mixed, we enjoyed walking in the hills, and visited Moustiers, Riez and Lac de St Croix. Meals had to be planned ahead as the restaurants in Esparron were closed due to rain and storms! . However, we enjoyed great boat trips on Lac d'esparron and Lac de St Croix and have lots of lovely memories from our stay. We will certainly be coming to Provence again.

perfect!

5 of 5
We had a brilliant stay in this apartment. There are views from the front door over the lake. The accommodation was clean and had everything we needed and is very close to the intermarche which was handy! The location was perfect as the village is walking distance and much less crowded than some others nearer the gorge but had everything that we wanted. The accommodation is at the top of the village so is an uphill walk from the lake which was fine for us but some people may struggle with it. Thank you for a brilliant holiday and we will definately be coming back again!
