Vinon sur Verdon, swimming in the Verdon

These plane trees, it seems, were planted by the shepherds of Arles in the 18th century when Vinon was an important stopping place during the seasonal migrations.

Today Vinon receives many visitors due to its rich natural surroundings. Vinon is just two steps away from the famous Verdon Canyons !
