Itinerary

Day 1

CASTELLANE (Arrival)

Castellane sits in the beautiful hills at the doorway to the Verdon canyons. Travellers are especially drawn here by the vast choice of excursions and sports offered around the old city. The whole of the town can be admired from the terrace of Notre Dame du Roc. Walk along what remains of the 14th-century walls of the city to reach the chapel. There is also a beautiful view of the ramparts, the Napoleon Bridge and the Verdon canyons.


Day 2
18km

CASTELLANE
to
POINT SUBLIME

Hanging from a rocky peak rising out of the stony ground and lavender bushes, the village of Rougon overlooks the Verdon gorge. Rougon offers a peaceful setting far from the smoke and noise of the big cities. It is a typical little Provençal village complete with narrow streets and houses built from traditional materials. From the ruins of the castle, there is a wonderful view of the Point Sublime which truly deserves its name.


Day 3
20km

POINT SUBLIME
to
LA PALUD

La Palud is one of the highlights of visiting the Verdon Gorge. There is plenty of hiking and mountain biking around the village and in the summer, swimming in Lake Ste. Croix. La Palud was once a potters’ village, and the traditional local products are still produced here. Feast on trout and crayfish, lamb with Provençal herbs, lavender honey, truffles, ham, and country bread. If you would like to cut 1.5 or 2 hours from the walk, we would suggest ordering a taxi at Chasteuil, from here the walk is along the road beside the Gorge.


Day 4
17km

LA PALUD
to
MOUSTIERS SAINTE MARIE

Moustiers is set in a semi-circle of rocky cliff at 630m altitude. Two peaks at either end of this cliff are linked together by an iron chain (227m. long) on which is hooked the star of one of the knights of the Crusades. Walkthrough the heart of the village to admire its interesting architecture or make your way to the outskirts to see the waterfall of Rion, Notre Dame de Beauvoir, and the grotto of St. Madeleine. Moustiers Sainte Marie is the home of earthenware tiles for this region. Take a stroll through the cute pottery shops and pick up some lovely locally made souvenirs.


Day 5

MOUSTIERS SAINTE MARIE

Moustiers Sainte Marie is the end of this walking holiday route through France. We can arrange extra nights anywhere on the itinerary after your last walking day.
