Sightseeing

The beautiful Verdon Gorge is just over 30km away and definitely worth the visit - aside from marvelling at the views, you can also take part in various activities including fly fishing, hiking, canoeing, rafting and climbing. Further afield is the popular resort of Fréjus, with its zoo and water park as well as a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Further still (but worth the drive) is the stylish city of Cannes.

Days Out

Gorges du Verdon

Gorges du Verdon

Gorges du Verdon is said to be Europe’s most beautiful river canyon, and it is not difficult to see why- the startling turquoise-green waters will take your breath away. The canyon has some amazing hiking routes or you can enjoy the canyon from the water, either by rafting or canoeing.

Notre Dame du Roc, Castellane

Castellane

Castellane itself, at only 1.5km away, begs to be explored. It is a wonderful medieval town with a fine square, narrowing streets and the terrace of the towering Notre Dame du Roc from which to admire the whole town.

Grasse

Parfumerie Galimard, Grasse

Sweet smell in the air? You are so close to the birthplace of perfume in Grasse it would be a shame not to explore the craft. At Parfumerie Galimard you can visit the museum of perfumes, go on a guided visit and even make your own perfume.

Grottes de Baume Obscure

Grottes de Baume Obscure

Explore a world underground at Grottes de Baume Obscure, 70 metres below the surface. It is a great activity wandering over 700 metres of paths through a series of spectacular caves and experiencing a sensory journey with dancing lights and original scores.

Off Parc Activities

This parc is ideal for an active holiday as the parc has a fishing lake and a canoeing lake. You can also enjoy a host of activities nearby including canyoning, rafting, horse riding, river fishing and climbing.

Climbing

Our parc at Castellane is located just a scenic 30km drive away from probably the best known and most visited sports climbing area in Europe. The Verdon Gorge is a huge limestone cliff that rises up to 700m high, with some routes only accessible by abseiling from the top. You’ll also reach some of the other popular routes by walking through tunnels at the bottom of what is widely regarded as Europe’s most stunning canyon. In fact, the longest tunnel is a massive 670 metres long, pitch black and requires you to get wading in places, adding even more adventure to your climbs in the Verdon Gorge. The incredible scenery and range of climbs really has to be seen to be believed, with 1500 established routes that include beginners’ and middle grade single pitch routes with easy access.
