🇬🇧 Our summer this year was all about being on the go and finished with glamping.
We departed from Rome along with a travel list full of cities and places to visit. A trip that envisaged traveling by car, plane, pubic transport and even by paddle boat.
We’ve been to Nice and Barcelona, just right after traveling throughout half of Italy. We also went to Avignon in Provence, then we headed to a marvelous place, surrounded by nature: Verdon.
It’s in the Provence of lavender fields (that unfortunately we didn’t manage to see in august) that ends into the beautiful Verdon Gorge, that I want to take you.
Before glamping and Vacanceselect I would never have thought about finding relax and nature there between gorges and rivers.
We stayed in the Camping Terra Verdon structure, which is in the medieval city of Castellane.
It’s really hard to describe with words the magnificence of those places.
The Camping Terra Verdon structure is the last acquired structure by Ciela Village (leader in the glamping industry).
This structure is surrounded by parks and has many big and welcoming houses available. We stayed in the Ciela Comfort which consisted of 3 bedrooms (1 queen-sized bed and 4 single). Inside these houses you can find anything, such as: equipped kitchen, blankets, tv, fridge and microwave.
It’s a 4-star-structure that Ciela Village is finishing, for example the pool still belongs to the old structure.
What Glamping offers beside the welcoming house:
· Entertainment for kids and adults
· Inflatable parks and sports camps
Next to Glamping there’s a big supermarket and in Castellane you can find a lot of typical restaurants that are worth trying.
But what can we visit?
The camping is less than a km away from lake Castillon, pure magnificence among the green. Super equipped zone (tanning beds and beach umbrellas), but is also accessible to those who decide to bring their own equipment. Of course, you can rent paddle boats to go on the lake and dive from the slide.
Occupying a whole day, you can also get to Lake Sainte-Croix, the beginning of the Gorges. It’s bigger than the one in Castillon, and which you can visit with small electric boats. Coming back, you necessarily need to stop on the bridge, over the dam, that gives the most beautiful and spectacular view of the whole lake.
Another sensational place is the Point Sublime (the name is a warranty).
High up among the mountains that overlook the Gorges, cut through by rapids (canyoning is a sport of excellence here) there’s a spot where you can admire the view with griffons flying above your head.
The weather was perfect, in August the temperature is around 27° degrees, this makes the bath in the lake much more enjoyable.
A little corner of France all to discover and love.
This was our experience with Vacanceselect (you can find the first one here), and there’s nothing I can do but recommend it to who, like me, has a family with young children, and doesn’t own a camper, but wants to rediscover nature with all the comforts that a house provides.
On the Vacanceselect website you’re definitely going to find a close place to try out.
