The region of the Verdon has something for everyone to provide you with a wonderful holiday. If you’re currently very athletic, love culture, are a nature lover or just want to relax, our region has a lot to offer. Discover the area with us, because we’re also still exploring and it will take years before we will be able to experience a little from everything.
Every day there are typical “Provence” markets in the neighborhood. We gladly provide you this list at your arrival. Our village offers a nice one every Sunday morning, which you can visit by foot. In Aups, at 10 km from our property, there’s a white truffle market every Wednesday from mid-June till end of August. From the end of November till the end of February you can find a black truffle market there as well.
There are a huge amount of marked hiking trails in the area. We have all the trail maps in our possession and give you with pleasure information about the ones we have explored already, our biggest passion. We might accompany you on one of the beautiful trails.
Because most of the trails are on rocky paths, it’s recommended to bring along solid walking shoes and walking sticks if you like steep hikes.
Cycling and mountain biking
Our region is also a paradise for cycling lovers. We invite you to take a look at the following site, where you can find several road and mountain bike routes: www.veloloisirprovence.com/fr/verdon/
Electrical, regular, racing or mountain bikes can be rented for this. As the wishes for this are very personal, we recommend to make a reservation yourself through this site: www.ouibike.net/en/. Timely reservation is recommended, free cancellation up to 24 hours before rental. If the bikes cannot be delivered to our chambres d’hôtes, we can of course help you to pick them up. If you don’t find the suitable bike, there are still rental shops in the area, let us know if we can help with something.
We have 2 bicycles available that can be used free of charge for quick shopping. If desired, these can also be rented for a full day.
If you get into troubles during one of the cycling trips, then we are there for you with our van to help you out. So you can experience endless cycling pleasure with confidence.
A lot of watersports can be done at the lakes and canyons: swimming, kayaking, pedalo, windsurfing or even a trip with an electrical boat in the canyon is a possibility.
The nearest beach is at 10 min drive and we rent out beach chairs to relax near the Verdon river.
Water shoes are recommended if you want to spend some times at one of the lakes.
At 1 km of our property there’s a horse riding school, which offers walks in the Verdon natural park: www.centre-equestre-montmeyan.fr
