Make a holiday rental gite or villa in Verdon, France your home away from home

The Verdon region of Alpes-de-Haute in the south of France is an incredible region of dramatic scenery, delightful villages and cultural treasures. Known due to the beautiful Gorges du Verdon (Verdon Gorges), Verdon has risen to global fame, primarily as a rock climbing haven of the highest quality, but there is simply so much to do from a holiday rental villa in Verdon that you need not go anywhere near a climbing rope to have a sensational holiday.

Things to do in Verdon, France

The famous Verdon Gorge is the most famous natural phenomenon in France, known colloquially as ‘France’s Grand Canyon’. Carved by the beautiful, turquoise waters of the Verdon River and stretching for over 25km, the Verdon Gorge is a rock climbers dream. There are over 900 recorded routes from the river to the top of the gorge, allowing everyone from a first time climber to a weather-beaten free climber. Throughout the Verdon region are many world class climbing schools, so if you would like some guidance, there is plenty on offer. Surrounding the Verdon Gorge is the huge Verdon National Park, which is encompasses the huge gorges, wide plains, alpine foothills and vast lakes. Walking, riding and bird watching holidays are magnificent in the Verdon National Park, throughout the year.

The River Verdon is a white water sports centre of the highest order. Five dams have been built to control the flow of the river, allowing for year round white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking and even swimming the rapids. There are a couple of large lakes along its course too, where people can temporality avoid the blazing heat of the sun with a magnificently refreshing, recharging and reinvigorating swim. Alternatively, these lakes are also great for sailing and windsurfing.

During the winter months, cross-country skiing thrives, in some of France’s most popular cross-country skiing resorts including Annot-Allos and Soleilhas-Vauplane. Soleilhas-Vauplane is also a fantastic downhill skiing resort, where advanced skiers can head into the great unknown, with plenty of backcountry to choose from, and learners can perfect their turns.

Those wishing to remain a little more sedate whilst visiting a self catering Verdon holiday rental will be pleased to know that there is no need to head out into the wilderness in order to enjoy a wonderfully rewarding break. The Greoux-les-Bains Spa resort is of the highest quality, and the region is scattered with stunning Romanesque churches, medieval villages and idyllic chateau to explore too.

The accommodation retains its old character with a modern touch. Has all that you could ask for in an apartment in a beautiful sleepy village location. Made a great base for us to access the gorge for climbing, running and hiking.

The spot was the perfect location to explore the gorge, walking or rafting. The house itself was clean spacious and had a lovely new kitchen. The host was welcoming and easy to contact when making arrival arrangements. The views from the terrace were the amazing and it was a great place to relax.
