Our recommendation for a tour of the Verdon gorges in a motor home

Accompanied by their four-legged animal, Axelle and Antonin had planned their road trip. Here is their tour in the Verdon Canyon by motorhome:

  • Castellane
  • Rougon ;
  • La Palud-sur-Verdon ;
  • Aiguine ;
  • The lake of Sainte-Croix ;
  • Moustiers-Sainte-Marie.

 The young couple were apprehensive about meeting other vehicles on the way, as the roads were narrow. However, they had no trouble driving to the Lac de Sainte-Croix in their motorhome.
Tip for your tour: During your stay in the Gorges du Verdon by motorhome, honk your horn to confirm your presence on the bends.

Focus on the Sainte-Croix lake: a jewel to explore! 

The Sainte-Croix lake is a must-see if you are touring the Verdon gorges in a motorhome. Take a break at the motor home area of the Sainte-Croix lake.

What to visit nearby? After leaving the motorhome area at Lac de Sainte-Croix, make a stop in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. You'll fall under its spell!
