    hi all we are thinking of heading to the gorge de verdon summer 09.

    is anyone else thinking of going that way ?

    are there any good aires near the river ?

    are there any good campsite around that area ?

    whats the best part of the verdon to head for ie for fishing boating etc ?

    and who wants to go ?

    Hi Jim
    I drove round it in a Hymer B584 in 2005,my mistake was going round clockwise (on the drop side of the road) i was TERRIFIED :Eeek: especially when i met coaches coming the other way :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:, it,s a narrow road and a very very long way down.
    Up side the views are astounding :thumb:.

    There is a trick to driving in France.
    leave UK late Saturday as all the lorry's are going mad to make Spain as they cant drive from midnight Saturday till Monday morning i think in France??.

    it cant be any worse than going over the Pyrenees or over to Andora can it ???:Eek!:

    We were there a few years ago and the campsites were heaving, but we found an aire near the bridge at the end of Lac de Sainte Croix. As for the gorge itself, the views are some of the most breathtaking I`ve ever seen. And while you`re in the area, Moustiers Sainte Marie is well worth a visit too.
