Take the Natural Regional Park of Verdon with its grand canyon, then add the low gorges and two lakes, Sainte-Croix and Esparron. Dot a few villages here and there, along with a few olive groves, and you have a perfect holiday location. All you need now is an intimate charming hotel where you’re guaranteed to get a warm welcome and find an environmentally-friendly approach to tourism, as the hosts have been been doing for over 20 years. You’ll find all this at Le Moulin du Château in Saint Laurent du Verdon.
Edith and Nicolas welcome you into light and airy indoor spaces, 10 rooms and suites with neat decor, plus the kinds of areas and calm you’d expect from quality tourism. In this old oil mill, the hosts cook up the flavours of Provence that they love, each delectable dish having a story to tell and being made of local seasonal produce. Whether you choose spot of pool or just one more drink on the terrace, here you can relax in a preserved environment. The hiking trails wind away from this homely hotel and will lead you to wonderful environments. The nearby Valensole plateau will give you the impression that you’re standing on top of the world, while canoeing in the Gorges du Verdon is just as breathtaking.
