Our village: La Verdière is one of the most beautiful perched and typical villages of the Haut-Var department and is nestled again its castle on top of a hill. It is away from the main tourist roads and is located in the famous Regional Park of the Verdon and the Pays de la Provence Verte. When you arrive in La Verdière, you will be struck by the defensive aspect of its architecture. Racked in a concentric shape around the heart of the village, houses are like high clustered battlements and windows are like arrowslits. When you arrive in the heart of La verdière, it is more serene with flowered facades, peaceful shops and laughs that break out from the windows. Streets are pleasante, tortuous and narrow and yet easily accessible. Step by step, they guide you towards the castle, private estate listed as historical monument and perfectly traditionally renovated by its owner. Each summer, thiss history lover opens the heavy doors of this prestigious fortress of our past. From the church square that is adjacent to the castle, unobstructed stunning views are worth the detour. In the village, you will find: pizzeria with take away pizzas, Asian restaurants with take away meals, traditional restaurant, café, bar and tobacconist, newsagent, bakery, “Utile” supermarket, hairdressing salon, butcher shop (specialist of barbecue meats) and weekly market.

Unexpected richness such as the Route des Lavances, the Route des Vins, the Routes des Crêtes, the Route des Châteaux, visit of villages, artcraft boutiques, vineyards, olive-growing lands, farms, mills, workshops and other factories.

The Regional Park of the Verdon: jewel of our region with lakes and gorges and many water and outdoor activities. The park lies on both sides of the Verdon River, emerald snake that crosses the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the Var, over 444800 acres and 44 villages where diversity and stunning landscapes reach record levels. In the Alps, it starts from the Plateau de Valensole, infinite mosaic of sparkling colours (wheat, lavender, sunflowers, poppies and olive trees), and extends to the Haut-Var to end in La Verdière which is so pround to be included into the villages of this wonderful area. A few km from La Verdière, starting from Quinson Lake, you will go up the Verdon Gorge, one of the most beautiful canyons of the world, to discover the 5 lakes including the famous Sainte-Croix Lake which is emerald blue, incredibly beautiful and surrouned by the most beautiful villages of Hautes-Alpes such as Moutiers-Sainte-Marie, and reach the Var department passing through the villages of Tourtour, Cotignac, Aups and many others which reputation is the pride of our region. The Regional Park of the Verdon offers many nature and water activities, from the calmest to the most extreme ones in a stunning environment whose reputation as high place of tourism is no longer to make. The Verdon: border between the Var and Les Alpes-de-Haute-Provence departments, the Verdon River is a long turquoise strip. It is a beautiful wild and fast-flowing river for lovers of extreme sports (rafting, hydrospeed, canoying, floating, kayak, rock-climbing or gliding). Over these peacefull banks, the Verdon will show you its beaches surrounding lakes and its coves for the calmest persons and children (swimming, pedalo, electrical boat, sailboarding, canoeing and fishing). Wild coves to sandy beaches, your choices are endless for swimming and sunbathing under the Provencal sun. You will experience exceptional moments in the Verdon River bed! The Verdon Canyon is a giant gash that snakes over 21 km, the greatest in the worl after the Colorado Canyon which name of “Grand Canyon” is taken from. From the Haut-Verdon, leaving behind you Les Alpes-de-Haute-Provence to reach the Var department, you will find the incredible route of Corniche Sublime which access is made by the highest bridge of Europ of 110 m that steps over the canyon and is the perfect place for lovers of bungee-jumping: the famous Artuby Bridge. It takes you more than 500 m above the deep gorge and will offer the most extraordinary views. After your spectacular trip above this breathtaking abyss, the green river opens onto an exceptional site, Sainte-Croix Lake, a stunning place that is worth the visit. A big bridge steps overs the beautiful water to connect one bank to the other. Downhill, the quiet streams of the Verdon peacefully make their way through the low gorges to the quiet area of Quinson where you cannot miss the National Museum of Prehistory. Further down, you can reach the Esparron Lake by pedalo or electrical boat. Beautiful sites are waiting for you. They won’t be as extravagant as the high gorges but you will enjoy the softness of the low gorges where you will have the pleasure to swim in the green water. The fresh water of the Verdon, after a last bridge, leaves the Var and the Alps to join the Durance, the Rhône and finally the sea.

La Provence Verte: the Green Provence is a land with character shaped by the locals and approved “region of art and history” by the Minister of Culture and Communication thanks to its rich heritage. This landscape that gathers together 43 villages starts in the centre of the Var and stretches to the Western Haut-Var to end at the border with Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. This stunning heritage adds to the traditional colours of Provence, the blue of the rivers and the Argens River. Mixed with the yellow sun, it creates the omnipresent green woods on lands dedicated to lovers of nature and outdoor activities. Here local products are pleasant. From the Roman period, plains and terraces are planted with vines and olive trees that offer rosé and high quality oils. This land is aptly named because everything is focused on nature protection. It is no coincidence if Correns, first organic village or France, is located in Provence Verte. Lovers of conviviality, nature, local products, this land was made for you and for your holidays in family, between friends or lovers.

Between sea and mountain: from La Verdière, our most daring guests will find mountain landscapes and ski resorts of the Hautes-Alpes 1 h30 to the North and the Mediterranean Sea, the sandy beaches of Saint-Tropez, Sainte-Maxime, Hyère, Bandol, Poquerolles Islands, the rocky inlets of Cassis or the port or Marseille 1 h to the South.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 children, and 2 grandparents. It was really perfect. Beautifully decorated and wonderfully clean. Great size rooms and bathrooms. Very well stocked kitchen with everything you could need, including an amazing coffee maker. The outside space is fabulous- a great size heated pool (cleaned 2x per week), large table, great corner seating and loungers. We used the fab bbq every night. We woke up every day to a beautiful view of the Chateau. The team were very helpful and attentive. They even left pool floats for our girls. We really loved our stay and hope to stay again!!!

Wir haben im Ferienhaus Les Chardons für 1 Woche (davor waren wir 1 Woche im Ferienhaus Les Levandes) einen ganz tollen Urlaub gehabt.

Das Haus ist umgeben von der Natur. Kein störender Straßenlärm. Das unbedingt benötigte Kfz kann unmittelbar vor dem Hauseingang abgestellt werden.

Das Haus ist in einem Top-Zustand!

Im Außenbereich verfügt es über eine sehr große Terrasse mit bequemen Sitzmöglichkeiten in Schatten- und Sonnenbereichen. Davor liegt ein vollkommen ausreichend großer, beheizter und von den Vermietern gut gepflegter Pool mit einfachem Einstieg für groß und klein. Die variablen Liegeflächen am Pool sind großzügig und bequem.

Die Ausstattung im Haus ist qualitativ sehr gut, sehr umfangreich, geschmackvoll und wirklich mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail ausgesucht (z.B. frische Blumen im Haus). Hier bieten die Vermieter deutlich mehr, als man es von sonstigen Ferienhäusern in Frankreich gewohnt ist. Sitzmöbel und Betten weisen eine gute Qualität auf. Auch die in vielen Ferienhäusern oft vernachlässigten Bäder sind hier von sehr guter Qualität. Das Wohn-/Esszimmer ist groß und hell, aber auch die drei Schlafzimmer und die zwei Bäder sind sehr großzügig angelegt. Die technischen Geräte funktionieren alle einwandfrei. Der Fernseher bietet eine Vielzahl an Programmen in deutscher und sonstigen Sprachen. Das Wifi funktioniert einwandfrei. Die Küche hat wirklich alles, was man braucht und in sehr guter Qualität.

Die Einweisung bei Ankunft in die wichtigsten Dinge, aber auch die Antworten auf diverse Fragen waren sehr hilfreich. Die sehr sympathischen Vermieter waren nicht nur beim Empfang und der Einweisung, sondern auch während unseres Aufenthalts stets erreichbar und äußerst hilfsbereit. Sie haben unseren traumhaften Aufenthalt in dem Ferienhaus wirklich zu einer unvergesslichen Erinnerung gemacht.Wir können dieses Haus daher sehr guten Gewissens weiter empfehlen!! Und: Wir werden definitiv wieder kommen.

L'accueil a été très chaleureux dès notre arrivée. Nous avons trouvé la bastide dans un état vraiment impeccable, très propre et bien entretenu, dans un endroit vraiment paisible.

La propriétaire, vraiment très sympathique nous a expliqué les activités à découvrir pour notre séjour avec diverses cartes etc... infos très pratiques quand on ne connaît pas la région.

La piscine ainsi que sa terrasse est vraiment très agréable et bien entretenu. Nous en avons profiter pleinement ainsi que le barbecue !!!

Je recommande donc vivement cet endroit, qui se trouve d'autant plus dans un endroit vraiment magnifique (le lac de Ste-Croix à découvrir absolument!!!)

excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Séjour très agréable avec un accueil sympathique ( bouquets de fleur, eau fraiche dans le frigo, bouteille de vin offerte...)

La maison est très bien décorée avec goût et d'une propreté irréprochable.

On se sent bien comme chez soi. Le cadre est calme et propice au repos.

Piscine chauffé, barbecue, grande terrasse tous les ingrédients sont là pour un séjour réussi.

A conseiller.

Calme, grand confort, prix justifié

  • 5 of 5

Nous n’en sommes pas à notre première location vacance, et nous essayons de juger le plus objectivement possible pour les locataires suivants. Dès les premiers contacts par e-mails puis par téléphone avec Corinne la propriétaire vous êtes en confiance, cependant on attend toujours le moment de vérité, le jour d’arrivée.

Nous sommes accueillis par Corinne qui nous présente Audrey la gouvernante qui sera notre principal contact au besoin. Les photos de la pub sont là devant vous pas de triche, la villa est d’excellente facture, vous êtes dans une vrai villa spacieuse, climatisation réversible et piscine chauffée, pour les personnes rhumatisantes c’est le paradis et pour les frileux aussi. A ne pas oublier la décoration, le domaine de Corinne, merci pour le plaisir des yeux.

Pour l’envers du décor il n’y en a pas car le moindre problème est réglé le plus rapidement possible, pour nous ce fût la cafetière, aussitôt remplacée par une toute neuve. Nous voyageons avec une petite bagagère et, surprise un abri (terrasse ombragée) est attenant au garage, voilà notre bien à l’abri. En votre absence enclenchez l’alarme visitez la région en toute quiétude, au cas où Audrey et Corinne sont alertées.

Vous l’avez compris nous avons vraiment apprécié tant le confort de notre villégiature que la beauté de la région mais aussi le contact humain, ainsi lors d’un prochain séjour nous aurons en plus l’impression de rendre visite à des amis.

Encore merci pour tout Corinne et Audrey et n’oubliez pas de faire une caresse de notre part à nos voisines aux grandes oreilles. A ce jour, sans aucun doute la meilleure villégiature vacance ou nous ayons résidé.

Au plaisir de vous revoir. Martine, Anna, et Marcel.
