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.

Calme, confort. Villa conforme aux promesses du site. Prestations haut de gamme. Accueil parfait, propriétaire charmante et soucieuse du confort de ses locataires.
SUPERBE, nous avons passé une semaine de repos et de charme en famille comme désiré. La bastide est tout confort et aménagée de façon à ne rien manquer. Un vrai bonheur de charme et luxe comme nous aimons. Matériaux confortables et de qualité. En plus la Provence Verte est magnifique. Déjeuner avec les cigales est un réel plaisir. Merci pour ces bons moments.
Excellente deuxième expérience dans les bastides du Verdon. Tout le confort moderne dans un endroit enchanteur et très calme. Une piscine chauffée, des chênes qui procurent une ombre naturelle. Pas de vue mais une intimité appréciable. Et surtout un accueil hors du commun : fleurs, rosé, conseils disponibilité et sourire.
Schon die Anreise war traumhaft schön und führte durch blühende Mohnfelder und vorbei an duftenden Ginsterbüsche. Angekommen im Haus wurden wir sehr freundlich empfangen und es waren im ganzen Haus wunderbare frische Rosen verteilt. Es duftet traumhaft. Eine Flasche feinster Roséweine wartete auch auf uns. Das Haus war sehr sauber und es ist sehr stilvoll und hochwertig eingerichtet. Es fehlt nahezu an nichts und der schöne Garten mit dem großen sauberen Pool und dem großen Grill lädt zum stundenlangen Verweilen ein. Die Ruhe lässt einen völlig entspannen und La Verdiere ist ein kleiner verträumter Ort ohne viel Tourismus. Bei kleinen Problemen wurde schnell geholfen. Es wäre gut, wenn im zweiten Bad ein Duschvorhang wäre und eine Duschstange. Wer viel erleben möchte muss mit dem Auto in die größeren Städte wie Aix oder St. Tropez fahren. Der Lubéron ist allemal ein oder auch mehrere Ausflüge Wert, z.b. nach Gordes oder Lourmarin. Wir können es ohne Einschränkung weiter empfehlen und würden auch 10 Sterne vergeben. Wir kommen wieder.

Nous avons adoré la tranquillité à proximité des gorges du Verdon et autres villages pittoresques du Var ! La propriété est totalement conforme au descriptif : Une maison récente, joliment décorée et meublée avec gout par la propriétaire. On y trouve tout ce qu'il faut pour vivre dedans comme dehors (salon extérieur, piscine chauffée, belle dotation en mobilier de jardin) et partager de bons moments en famille ou des amis. Des propriétaires attentionnés qui vous garantissent le meilleur accueil et font le maximum pour satisfaire leurs hôtes : informations touristiques abondantes sur place, de magnifiques roses, une bonne bouteille de rosé des Chaberts (à consommer avec modération). Le propriétaire est restaurateur et a prévu tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner (induction, bonnes casseroles, barbecue , etc..). Le domaine est recouvert de chênes, ce qui garantit l'intimité et le côté nature mais n'offre pas de vue sur le joli village voisin de la Verdière.
Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu pour des vacances reposantes dans un environnement de qualité et n'hésiterons pas à revenir !
We had a 2 week long vacation in this mansion with 3 persons (1 in a wheelchair) and a dog.
The first impression of this house was marvelous; it looked very comfortable and created a spacious feeling. The house was exactly like in the pictures, or maybe even better. The interior was tastefully arranged and the furniture had a lot of Mediterranean charm. Every room was decorated with love, flowers and other lovely accessories. Since the day we arrived it instantly felt like vacation.
The host was a very friendly and enjoyable person and she was very good in English so communication wasn’t difficult. The host was there for our needs and we really felt in good hands.
There were very comfortable sleeping rooms, a huge living room with adjacent kitchen, which was well equipped and there also was a very large and nice terrace. Below the terrace was the pool area with a lovely green truffle oak copse in the background. It was very nice to have a pool, especially on warmer days, on colder days the constant temperature was convenient.
Inside the house most of the rooms were easily accessible with a wheelchair, for entering and leaving, just a single low step had to be passed. The mansion and everything inside was clean and very well-maintained. The estate was circumventing by a fence, so there was no need to worry about the dog, to get lost when he played outside the house.
In summary we had a great vacation and a nice stay in this mansion, where we had time to relax and to savour the nice tranquility of the estate and the natural surroundings.
We want to thank our lovely host for having such a marvelous vacation.
We would definitely like to come again.
Geographical location: as the Rose des Vents, our location offers a stay in the countryside near the lakes (10 min), the sea (1 h) and the mountain (1 h30). In a few minutes, you will leave the Var department to reach the Bouches-du-Rhône (Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Cassis), the Vauclues (Avignon, Orange, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Lourmarin and Gordes) and the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence departments (Forcalquier, Manosque, Sisteron, Valensole, Les Mées and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie) without forgetting, if time permits, a small detour by the mounts of Sainte-Baume and Sainte-Victoire which are so dear to Paul Cézanne and Marcel Pagnol. 1 h30 away, a last department is worth the visit, Les Alpes Maritimes (Cannes, Grasse, Nice and Menton).
