Esparron de Verdon is in the department (04) of les Alpes de Haute Provence. It is a small Provençal village that is divided into two; the mediaeval part with its château on one side and the newer part on the other.
The lake of Esparron de Verdon stands at the foot of the village which is located right in the heart of the Verdon Regional Park. The lake extends over 367 hectares and will delight hikers due to its numerous walking paths and the GR4 (hiking trail) that runs alongside the lake and the Gorge. We will provide with you more information on hiking trails once you have arrived.
There are a few shops to welcome you in the village centre: a tobacconist’s run by the lovely Clémentine, always ready with a smile; a small grocery store, a bakery and 3 restaurants.
Grocery store run by corine and her husband. A bakery open in season where Tom is waiting for you.
3 restaurants are also at your disposal: Thibaut and Hélène’s Bistrot, Laurent’s Paris London and Philippe’s Buvette. They each have their own provençal specialities !
This way, you will be able to taste whatever you like.
In our opinion, the best way to visit the lake is by boat since you can row anywhere you like! To protect the environment, no motorboats are allowed on the lake.
So, what are you waiting for? Come and see us!
