Lac de Sainte Croix and Lac d’Esparron
Blue waters and holiday pleasures
Set in the heart of the Verdon and spanning the Alpes-de Haute-Provence and Var areas, Lac de Sainte-Croix is a vast expanse of translucent waters reminiscent of tropical climes. The view from the village of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon, perched on a rocky outcrop, unveils the lake in all its splendour. Sainte-Croix is a paradise for water sports fans and is France’s second-largest reservoir, inaugurated in 1974. A few kilometres to the West, the Verdon river arrives at the village of Esparron-de-Verdon and a smaller but no less enchanting lake: Lac d’Esparron, where you can revel in the joys of surf sports and bathing, or simply enjoy a break on the sandy beach.
