5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

What a beautiful place. The water is such a stunning colour. We hired a kayak and spent a couple of hours exploring the gorge du verdun. It was busy with electric boats, kayaks and pedlos but everyone was good humoured about a few minor collisions. No one hurt and no damage. Plenty of places to get out your boat and have a picnic an route.

Had a lovely swim in the lake with the water being surprisingly warm.

“Blue-green lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

We started our day wit the lake in the morning at boat rental.We rented a canoe for 2 hours and sailed on Verdon river upstream.There is a beautiful view on the rocks above you and blue-green water around you.You can swimm in the river if you want or just watch the scenery around you.Later we made a car trip around the lake.We started in Moustier Sainte Marie.Beautiful village which is worth to see,then we moved above the lake between the blue fields with lavender.This is something unforgetable.There are many photogenic views with blue fields and lake with mountains in backround.We like it so much.If you go to Provence you must see it.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Wonderfully blue lake set in a part of France with stunning scenery. We were there on a Sunday when it was really busy with French people enjoying a day out.

The highlight was hiring a boat and going up the river into the gorge. It's spectacular. The children enjoyed jumping off the back and swimming in the wonderful blue waters of the river.

If you didn't remember to bring a picnic there's a shop across the road from the boat hire with everything you need right down to paper plates and plastic forks.
