Free WiFi:
This is an ideal location for those wanting to experience the food, wine, charm and bustle of Provençal village life, while being only 15 minutes from the spectacular Gorges du Verdon and the activities offered in and around the 11 kilometre-long Lac Ste Croix. You will find numerous beaches and secluded coves for swimming and sunbathing, as well as places (in the summer season) to hire pedalloes, kayaks, canoes and electric boats to take you into the gorge itself.

Formidable!

You might also like to try white-water rafting (out of season), sailing, climbing or paragliding in and around the lake / gorge area. Alternatively, we are surrounded by great walking and cycling country to suit most abilities, and horse-riding is available nearby too.

All around are vineyards and lavender fields......and the Med is only an hour away!
