For those who love refreshing swims, the Verdon is an exceptional natural setting with many lakes and ponds. These include Lake Castillon, which is near the campsite!
Lake Castillon in the Verdon
Lake Castillon, located 5 km from Terra Verdon in the Verdon Natural Park, is a dream setting for spending a day with the whole family.
The lake is surrounded by beautiful mountains in an atmosphere where peace and quiet reign. If you need a breath of fresh air, this is the perfect place to get away from everyday life! It is located at approximately 900 m above sea level and borders the villages of Saint-Julien-du-Verdon and Saint-André-les-Alpes.
There are small monitored beaches, perfect for relaxing by the lake while the kids swim. At Le Sirocco water sports center near Castellane, you can rent canoes, pedal boats with optional slide, kayaks or paddleboards for a ride on the water. If you like extreme sports, why not try a little water skiing or wakeboarding? And if you don’t feel like paddling or rowing, choose an electric boat to easily navigate on the lake while admiring the beautiful landscapes that surround you, no effort required! Choose your means of exploring this crystal-clear lake safely! Enjoy a getaway with your family!
In Saint-Julien du Verdon, on the other side of the lake, you can enjoy other water sports such as windsurfing or the Optimist, a one-sail dinghy for sailing on the calm (sometimes less so) waters of the lake. Or you can put on your sneakers for a nice hike around the lake!
After enjoying the emerald waters of the lake, take the time to visit the charming villages of Saint-André-les-Alpes and Saint-Laurent-du-Verdon!
You will love the picturesque charm of these small mountain villages. Many beautiful hiking trails start from here. Breathe in the pure mountain air!
Fishing in Lake Castillon
How about an afternoon of fishing with friends or family in the Verdon?
The Verdon Gorges are very well known with fans of fishing!
At Lake Sainte-Croix, you can fish for trout, while at Lake Castillon you can fish for zander, perch or pike!
Head to the lakeshore or rent a boat for some great fishing. Take a seat and wait quietly by the lake: you will need patience while waiting for the fish to take the bait!
