A 4-star campsite on the hilltops of Castellane
At the heart of the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon (Verdon Natural Regional Park) in the Alpes de Haute Provence, two kilometres from Castellane, dubbed as “a village and traditional old town”, the International campsite is established on a several-hectare wooded and verdant site. Surrounded by mountains, the latter enjoys a sublime setting and it could not be more calming, at an altitude of nearly 1,000 metres!
Of the 297 plots included on the campsite, 120 are reserved to accommodate campers. Having an average area greater than 90 m², these spacious pitches are either shaded or semi-shaded. Each one has an electrical connection point and a mains water point. They can accommodate between 1 and 6 people.
This Gorges du Verdon campsite also offers a multitude of holiday-hire accommodation. From the 2 to 3 bedroom mobile home to the tent allowing holidaymakers to be at one with nature, there is something to suit every taste and budget. Ideal for a glamping stay in the great outdoors, these tents offer far more comfort than may, at first, be apparent. Given the existence of their shower room and semi-covered terrace extending over 15 m², you will most certainly have a delightful stay.
The International campsite, moreover, has countless shops and services, such as a mini-market, a restaurant, a bar, a snack bar, a launderette, Wi-Fi coverage across the entire campsite and other facilities.
The campsite is a stone’s throw from the Lac de Castillon reservoir and the Lac de Chaudanne lake...
Taking advantage of an exceptional location, two kilometres from Castellane and from the Verdon river, and 5 kilometres from the superb Lac de Castillon and the Lac de Chaudanne, this establishment offers holidaymakers the possibility of going quickly to the water’s edge. There holidaymakers may swim and do various aquatic activities. There is nothing better than the beaches surrounding the lakes of the Gorges du Verdon to lay out your towel, and make the most of the Provençal sunshine to get a tan! Those keen on swimming can take advantage of the campsite’s swimming pool.
The campsite has various recreational facilities amongst which are an inflatable structure as well as a children’s outdoor play area, an area for playing boules, a library, a volleyball court, a games room with a pool table, an archery range and other facilities.
During the summer season, activities, hikes and sports tournaments are organised every week, with a multitude of challenges to accept, either as a family or with friends. Trips are also offered to holidaymakers who wish to discover canyoning, rafting, hydrospeed and other similar sports. Various activities and workshops are, moreover, scheduled at the campsite mini-club to occupy and amuse children, whilst in the evenings shows, themed meals or games nights also regularly organised.
...and the superb Gorges du Verdon.
Verdon Natural Regional Park is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful natural sites in France. A stay in this 4-star Castellane campsite, a genuine haven of peace within a region which is all too popular with tourists, enables you to enjoy the beauty of the Verdon river, from its wild countryside to its exceptional beauty and colours, which are indeed entrancing.
The finest canyon in Europe, the Gorges du Verdon meanders between the cliffs and the mountains, emerging here and there across vast artificial lakes. These include the Lac d’Esparron, the Lac de Castillon and the Lac de Sainte Croix (all picturesque lakes forming part of the Gorges du Verdon). To appreciate the contours, what could be better than a descent by canoe or kayak? This is a descent which also enables you to stop for a relaxing break and a swim wherever you wish. The artificial lakes can enable you the chance to practice a multitude of nautical activities, such as windsurfing or water-skiing. Various water sports centres and artificial beaches have been developed around these lakes.
The picturesque village of Castellane, dominated by a rock 184 metres high, situated two kilometres from the International campsite, houses a historic heritage which is, at the very least, significant with the remains of its fortified tower, as well as its church and ramparts. The Castellane fair, which is organised every month, brings together numerous small producers and artisans, whose stalls are packed with regional high-quality products. At the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, which is classed as one of the finest villages in France, is also worth the detour.
