Roadtrips: 4 days in the VERDON GORGES
People come from all over just to gaze at these gorgeous gorges and the pools of intensely aquamarine water that flow through them. Slicing a 25km passage through the limestone plateaux of southern Haute Provence, over many millenia, the green water of Verdon carved out the deepest gorge in Europe. The most spectacular site is the grand canyon (no, not that one!) which you can admire from your van as you meander along the Crest road (route des Crêtes). Beautiful villages like Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and Palud-sur-Verdon line the route and on the way back, you can stop off in Cotignac known for its troglodyte houses that are built into the surrounding rock faces.
Sounds good? Contact your agent who will give you plenty of tips on where to park for the night and what to do during the day throughout your island road trip.
