    The water is so blue! Really enjoyed kayaking through the jagged gorge. Very crowded in high season, but the sheer natural beauty dilutes it all. Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a very nice village

    De route des Cretes, starting at La Palud can be breathtaking, as long as it is not too busy. The gorges are beautiful in their own right, and you have the opportunity to admire griffon vultures while they soar through the sky.

    We were driving to Grenoble and coming into Sisteron could help but see the Citadel, so stopped off to have a look.
    Very impressive, tremendous views, interesting history, and all for €7.50.
    Excellent visit

    Our 2 day spent in Lac d’Allos was an unforgettable experience. The tranquility of the surroundings combined with the pristine, starry sky created a perfect outdoor retreat. Our tent provided a cozy haven against the cool night air, and we fell asleep to the gentle sound of water lapping at the lake’s edge. Waking up to the soft hues of dawn over the mountains was simply breathtaking. A must-visit for nature lovers seeking peace and natural beauty. You can find wide variaty of wild life and all the nature is just beautiful!

    The whole area of the Gorges du Verdon is beautiful. From the lavender fields atop the plateau to the access points to the lakes, it is a region of rugged and natural beauty. The narrow chasms of the Gorge itself are difficult to access and experience. And due to the heat, we were not anxious to hike. Thanks to the service rep in Moustiers, we took a loop drive with many viewpoints to be able to capture this dramatic landscape. Make sure to bring your picnic lunch!

    Majestic lavender fields, framed by Alps. Some are overcrowded by tourists though. Visit at the end June - beginning of July, don't stop the car near first field you found - it will always be most overcrowded

    We drove the Route des grande Alpes - and this was a perfect "col" to include on our trip.
    Nice roads; paved all the way - so no trouble for us (Mazda MX5).
    Few people, some by bike and others by bycisles.
    Space for all of us. and a beautiful view all the way around

    The Chateau is a fine 18th century country house which has been rescued from dereliction by the current owners who bought it in 1981. It took 30 lorry loads to clear the place of rubble and rubbish. The interior has been well restored and contains some good period furniture and porcelain. There is a fairly tenuous connection with Marie Antoinette who features in several rooms in busts and paintings of varying quality.

    I note that several other reviews mention the guide. He is a diminutive gentleman in his 70s who gives a theatrical performance in a booming voice, waving a cane for emphasis. He referred to the proprietors in the third person throughout but I suspect that he is one of them.

    He berated the French government for offering chateau owners insufficient tax breaks and putting too much red tape in the way of opening to the public. He was, clearly, a proud Provencal and ridiculed Parisians. He was scathing about a journalist who had the temerity to give the chateau a negative review in a local newspaper.

    Some of this was quite entertaining, but I fear the monsieur likes the sound of his own voice a little too much and he went on far too long. The tour was 2 hours and 15 minutes when it should have taken no more than an hour. The house is worth seeing but only if you are not in a hurry. It felt a bit like being taken hostage. When we reached the gift shop at the end, we fled to the carpark and drove off before we could be detained any further.
