Alan Rogers Review

Located at an altitude of 660 metres, between pinewoods and the River Verdon, Huttopia Gorges du Verdon is a family site with large, shaded or semi-shaded pitches and a range of chalets and mobile homes. The site has been entirely renovated. It has an inviting swimming pool and offers direct access to the Verdon (with its own river beach). The main sight here is, of course, the stunning canyon of the Gorges du Verdon, a grandiose area of vertiginous cliffs towering above the emerald river below. There are some superb walks and this is also an ideal location for white-water rafting or canoeing.

The site becomes livelier in high season with a varied entertainment and activity programme. On-site amenities include a bar/restaurant and pizzeria and a well stocked shop. Aside from the canyon itself, there is much to see in the area – the Provençal lavender fields, ancient villages such as Castellane and Trigance, and the Riviera beaches (reachable in less than 90 minutes). It is possible to visit a different local market every day of the week and some towns in July and August hold evening markets.
