La Palud sur Verdon, the village
La Palud is one of the most important places in the region for visiting the Verdon Canyon.

It is a perfect spot for a vacation in the great outdoors: pleasant sports and learning too.

The center of the village is the starting point for a tourist trail that takes you along the "route des Crêtes" (the crest road) where you will have a 23km. view of the great canyon.

La Palud sur Verdon, road

There is plenty of hiking and mountain biking around the village and in the summer, swimming in Lake Ste. Croix. For those hardy spirits there is a large choice of white water sports.

La Palud was once a potters' village, and the tradition for local products has continued. Here you will find trout and crayfish, baby lamb with Provençal herbs, lavender honey, truffles, ham, and country bread.

In Palud the air is fresh, it is far from city pollution, and is in the middle of a geological reserve..!
