Where to sail on the Verdon lakes? :

Once you have picked up your boat and your equipment at our reception chalet, all you have to do is set off on an adventure to discover the Verdon lakes . We recommend two lakes in particular:

Castillon Lake, a typical mountain lake, wilder and less frequented, is the ideal place to spend the day with the family. Various lake stops selected, accessible on map. Enjoy scenic spots around, perfect for pausing and admiring nature’s beauty.

The lake of Sainte-Croix , world famous, it allows you at the Galetas bridge, to visit the end of the Verdon Grand Canyon for about 2 km and to navigate in peace between its impressive limestone cliffs. You will still have to be careful and slalom between the many pedal boats and electric boats. If you are looking for a bit of tranquility, we have made a small selection for you.
