From Le Diamant Noir holiday accommodation, Aups, Var we are only a twenty minute drive to the Lac Sainte Croix with its watersports and beaches.
Hire a pedal boat or a canoe and venture up the Gorges Du Verdon.
In high season be prepared to queue for a boat. Be assured it is worth the wait.
The scenery is spectacular and there is a great atmosphere with an international clientele having great fun on the water.
There are places to moor and for the more daring-places to jump off the rocks into the cool very blue waters below
Some of the pedal boats have slides on the back for easy access to the water.
Take a drink or picnic with you and stop on the way up the Gorges to take a break – your knees will need it!
Take in the view of the rock formation rising high out of the water. See the road winding high above.
Waterfalls, caves, wildlife—-
For those of you who are not so energetic there are plenty of picnic areas and parking along the shore of the lake.
It is a truly amazing colour and very inviting for a dip.
