An idyllic location by the Verdon river
Barely 2 kilometres from the centre of Castellane, a village comprised of 1,500 inhabitants nestling in the Verdon gorges, upstream of the Chaudanne reservoir dam and the famous Lac de Castillon lake, the Le Domaine du Verdon campsite is located. A luxury campsite in the Alpes de Haute Provence, this establishment stretches over a surface area of 14 hectares and has a total of 500 pitches.
Of these 500 pitches, 284 are occupied by holiday rentals and 252 are pitches reserved for the accommodation of tents, caravans and campers. All of these pitches make the most of one of the most exceptional natural settings, to offer their occupants tranquillity and wellness. For the most part shaded and separated by hedges, they are all laid to lawn and some have an electrical connection. Note that some pitches are located by the river and therefore enable their occupant(s) to wake up opposite one of the most beautiful water courses in France.
The holiday rental accommodation consists of several types of cottages. Perfectly integrated within the setting and the natural surroundings of the site, these holiday-hire accommodation units meet holidaymakers’ expectations and needs, when seeking luxury and facilities so they can get the most out of their stay in the Verdon gorges.
