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.

Such a cute town and beautiful apartment. It was so clean and gorgeous! Great views of the streets. Thomas was so friendly and helpful- a great host! Cannot wait to go back someday.

Nice location great views and very quiet. The pool is gorgeous so warm and the caretaker cleans it a couple of times during the week. You can hire bedding and towels, but would advise you take own towels as the hire ones are only bath towels and not bath sheets so a little small. Kitchen is nicely equipped but does not have a kettle or an oven just a job. There is a BBQ but very dirty and rusty. We bought a cheap BBQ in the supermarket and left it there. The caretakers only speak French but are very friendly and helpful. The villa on arrival was clean and the caretakers who live next door were quick to unlock and show us around. The villa is close to the amazing lavender fields a beautiful area. The village of Valensole has a couple of bars that also serve food and there are a couple of nice gift shops, a really lovely village with great friendly atmosphere. We would definitely think of staying at the villa again.
