Location description from owner

The Provence region

The Parc du Verdon is situated in the PACA ( Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur) region of the South of France.
The scenery is beautiful and this is true Provence a world away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, although only an hour away.

The climate is superb for a holiday- hot sunny days but cooler evenings as a result of the altitude at 500m.
For those wanting to avoid the school holiday rush, June and September are lovely months- the weather is warm and places are not so busy.

Aups is an authentic Provençal market town and people come from miles around to share the productivity of the Provençal soil and local craftspeople at the twice weekly market.

Take a seat at a street café and absorb the atmosphere, the hustle and bustle of the morning´s business before a long gastronomic lunch and relaxing afternoon, the clink of the boules as pétanque is played enthusiastically under the shade of the plane trees.

Take a stroll through the old streets steeped in history.

The varied landscapes dotted with aromatic herbs and the purple clad-lavender fields are inhabited by honey−producing bees. Cepes and morilles along with the coveted black truffle − "le diamant noir" are among the fruits of the oak forests.
A weekly truffle market is held in Aups during the winter months, where the chefs source the truffles for the tables of the Riviera.

All amenities are available in the town.

A 20minute drive takes you to the Lac Sainte Croix and the Gorges Du Verdon. The scenery is spectacular and the location ideal for a family day out. -Watersposts are available on the lake and in the river Verdon.

A comfortable 10minute walk from the village- Le Diamant Noir is ideally situated.

Aups

"Le Diamant Noir" is situated in the Verdon National Park.

Although you need go no further than our local, historic town of Aups for a taste of Provence and its famous truffle market, we are in a region of extreme natural beauty with a wealth of flora and fauna for nature lovers.

Villages in the area include Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Tourtour, Salernes, Flayosc, Villecroze, Carcès,Cotignac.

Situated in the foothills of the Alps we are surrounded by incredible scenery, from fortified medieval hill-top villages to the magnificent Gorges Du Verdon, the largest canyon in Europe. The Lac St Croix provides a base for many watersports. The lavender plateau of Valensole is only a short drive away.

Surrounded by local producers there are gastronomic delights at every corner, not forgetting many hectares of vineyards and the wine-tasting experience.

Both the Alpes of Haute Provence and the resorts of the Côte d´Azur, such as St Tropez, Antibes, Cannes and Nice are easily accessible by car.

A two hour drive will take you on a journey through spectacular scenery to the source of the Verdon River at the Val d´Allos − also a ski resort in winter.
