Covering 2,200 hectares, Lake Sainte-Croix in Var is the largest lake in Verdon. This immense reservoir was created in 1973, following the construction of a dam on the course of the Verdon, and is now a major resort in the region. In addition, the magnificent colour of the water, varying from turquoise to emerald, always makes an impression…

With its many landscaped beaches, the lake is an ideal place to unwind, swim and enjoy water sports. With windsurfing, pedal-boats, canoe-kayaks, catamaran, stand up paddle and electric boats, you will be spoilt for choice. If you're looking for a more peaceful experience, the lake has less busy areas too, hidden behind the pines and oaks.

Take the time to stroll along the paths around the lake and breathe in the scents of Provence. Nearby are some villages that are well worth a visit, like Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Nestling between two cliffs, it invites visitors to discover the talent of its faience-makers.
