Things to do
Relax and watch the world go by on the terrace or on one of the many beaches on the nearby lake.
The Canyon of Baudinard should not be missed. Cliffs of up to 150 meters, home to many caves, beautiful clear turquoise water. It defines the 13 kilometre long path called le Sentier des Basses Gorges. Be warned, it's not for those who are afraid of heights! There are many marked out paths in the area and general walks near the village that are excellent for viewing the diverse ProvenÃ§ale flora of the region. For example, le Sentier Botanique of 2 km in length, or the path du Museau de la Colline which takes you to the 16th century chapel of Notre Dame de la Garde at an altitude of 710 meters. From here, you will enjoy a tremendous vantage point of six departments of the Var.
In Baudinard, you could visit the 11th century church of Saint Michel l'Archange, restored in 1921; le pont Silvestre (built near the remains of a Roman bridge), the three shrines of Ste Catherine, St Espero and St Etienne, or the 14th century dungeon of the Chateau de Sabran. A classified historic building, l'Abbaye de Valmogne, is situated on le chemin de Vaumougne. This superb Roman priory of the 13th century has been recently restored and is well worth a visit. There are walks and hikes along the edge of the river Verdon, as well as walks that take in villages and vantage points. Whatever walk you choose, you can be sure of the most awe-inspiring scenery, a wealth of wildlife and a wide variety of wildflowers, plants and birds.
Action and Adventure Activities
The Gorge and the lakes of the Verdon river are the home of many companies specialising in action and adventure activities such as white water rafting, canoeing, canyoning, kayaking, sailing, water skiing, climbing, trekking, mountain bike rides paragliding, free flight, gliding, and horse riding. It is also one of the most memorable settings in the world for fishing. It is sheer nature at its best featuring crystal clear emerald waters and white canyon cliffs 700 meters high above your head. It is a paradise for hikers, climbers and fly-fishers.Read more

Enjoyable and Interesting holiday in lovely Village House
Left on 12/04/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | Ann Staunton
We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful quiet house. The house was as described on the website and is most interesting and unusual. The best feature was the upper floor comprising of a big bedroom, bathroom and hallway, very useful for storage and for hanging clothes. There are double doors leading to a balcony and the view from here is wonderful. If you sit out there at night the silence is beautiful.
The sitting/diningroom has a fine big fireplace and good views also. We would have liked a couple of armchairs as we found the sofabed uncomfortable for sitting. (We are an elderly couple).
The village was very quiet when we were there - October- and the Auberge was closed completely. There is a nice friendly bar/restaurant which was open a few nights a week, and most lunchtimes. Unfortunately there was nowhere to buy bread or milk in the mornings, or anytime. But there is very good shopping about 10kms away.
However, apart from that small problem, we had a great time. The surrounding area is beautiful, there are lovely towns and villages all around, with some very good restaurants. The scenery is great and the tranquility of the whole area beautiful. However, if you are more active there is plenty to do with watersports on the lake and in the gorge, and wonderful walking areas. Thank you. We would love to stay there again.

The 3rd floor bath with a view and the terrace are gems. Could not stop photographing sunsets. Perfect place to enjoy a sundowner and then simply walk down the stairs and cross the street for a delicious meal at the local bistro. Very friendly bistro owners!
