Within forty minutes' drive you can reach the stunning Lac St Croix and sunbathe, swim or sail in its turquoise waters. It is the biggest lake of the Regional Natural Park Verdon and is an extremely popular summer destination, almost as popular as the sea. It has the added advantage that you will not get caught in traffic and will certainly find somewhere to park. Its huge surface covers 12 km and offers endless opportunities for bathing, diving and water-sports. Lac St Croix is famous for the exceptional turquoise colour of its waters. One of the best access points for the pebble beaches of the lake is Bauduen. This village has several companies which supply pedalos and canoes.
The Gorge du Verdon is an incredible river canyon that is often considered Europe's most beautiful. It is 25 km long and 700 metres deep. It was formed by the Verdon river, named for its startling turquoise/green water, one of the location's distinguishing characteristics. The most impressive parts lie between the town of Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. It is an absolute must-see, its scenery is truly spectacular and hikers and climbers will be thrilled with the activities on offer. The best way to see the Gorge is by renting a canoe for 2-3 hours from where the river joins the lake- the paddle upstream is unforgettable. More extreme sports like canyoning and spelunking are also possible in this area, although none of us have tried it to date!
Also worth seeing are lavender fields of the Valensole Plateau. The fields in this area begin blooming in July and can be admired through to September. Wheat fields and lavender fields are found in the same areas, and often side by side. The wheat ripens just before the lavender season, so lavender fields are often bordered by golden bands of grain, back-lighted by the sun.
St Tropez is an hour's drive away and if you can stand the summer crowds, you could while away a few hours away at the notorious waterfront bar Senequir, which opened its doors in 1887, and enjoy watching the rich and famous stroll by and admire the super yachts. Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo and Aix en Provence are also fabulous day trips.
Or, stay at home....head down to the boulangerie in the morning for some fresh croissants and spend the afternoon in the square, soaking up the atmosphere and sampling the delights of the area. And, of course, enjoy a glass or two of (URL HIDDEN) favourite 'pink tea'.

I live and work in London with my wife, Nikki, son (17) and two daughters (7 and 1). We have spent many of our recent holidays at a family home in Provence France which I also rent out through air bnb. My wife has family in Australia and South Africa and so we travel to both places to visit them and are seeking to see new areas along the way. We enjoy outdoor activities and enjoy good food. We appreciate what makes a good traveller from our experiences of hosting and will treat homes with the upmost respect.
