Side Trips around Bay of Toulon
More about us...
Toulon region is the ideal departure point for a large choice of excursions to discover Provence’s beautiful scenery and a multitude of ancient, typically-Provencal villages.
Les Gorges du Verdon
One of the most impressive canyons in Europe, known as the ‘French Grand Canyon’, situated about 2 hours drive from Toulon. It stretches for about 15 miles from the Pont-de-Soleils to Sainte Croix Lake and the height varies between 800 and 2300 feet. Breathtaking scenery and a fantastic place for outdoor activities such as hiking on paths following the river, mountain biking, rock-climbing, paragliding and of course white-water rafting. It is recommended to bring a flash light, as the walking path goes through long and dark tunnels. A stop at the historical and gorgeous village of Moustiers, located North of St Croix Lake, is a ‘must do’.
Le Telleul: Creperie located Rue Grande in the small village of La Palud sur Verdon, is a great place to stop for a casual lunch or dinner. Tel: +33(0)4 92 73 08 71
Beautiful village built around a feudal 13th century castle and overlooking splendid deep gorges.
Authentic fishing port with coloured façades and nice sheltered beaches, making it a popular seaside resort. Beautiful monuments remain as a testament to the port’s history.
