As you may have noticed, I am in love with hotels located in the nature. It is so refreshing to get away from the big chains to experience a more intimate environment.
Le Verdon is located in Haute-Provence, a region that has many secrets. It has some of the most incredible landscapes: fauna and flora such as fields of lavenders, the Provençal Grand Canyon and so much more.
On my last trip there, it was a top priority for me to check out Natural Regional Park of Gorges du Verdon. This winding cliff-side road has views that will astound you. In addition, with its numerous viewpoints, you will be able to take a break to look at the natural splendor of the most famous part of the Gorges du Verdon – the Grand Canyon du Verdon.
While I was only able to stay a weekend, Hotel & Spa des Gorges du Verdon was the dream base to explore the surroundings.
Here’s what it’s like staying at the one-of-a-kind Hotel & Spa des Gorges du Verdon in La Palud sur Verdon.
