In all honesty: this won’t be a very long post. Mainly because there just isn’t that much to do around Lac de Sainte-Croix. But do you need that during a chill-trip to the South of France? Nope! So here goes the tiniest Lac de Sainte Croix guide ever. Enjoy!
Sip wine in Bauduen
Bauduen was by far our favorite village with three restaurants and a lovely Sunday market. Not to forget a fancy wine bar with a garçon advanced in years who knows everything about wine!
La Papillon – Rue Des Jardins, 83630 Bauduen, France
Go kayaking on the Gorges du Verdon
Kayaking is awesome. Definitely if it’s through a breathtaking gorge. Do it!
(You can opt to rent a boat if you think kayaking is too heavy to be doing on a holiday).
If you like a thrill: go rafting! There are organizations around the entire lake that will take you on an unforgettable trip.
According to many, the most pleasant village around the Lac. Not for us, but it was worth a visit. Definitely if you like a choice of restaurants. Aups is also a fine suggestion.
Take a hike
Oké I don’t like hiking so I’m not going to pretend I spent all morning having the time of my life. But it was very nice to see the lake from different points of view. Haha, who am I kidding, hiking sucks!!
It depends on where you’re located around the lake but we were only two hours away from the center of Nice. I believe Nice is one of the prettiest cities in France. And worth the drive.
Peace and quiet
Seriously, the South of France is one of the prettiest places that still remain on this earth. Not too many tourists. Enjoy the scenery, La Douce France, and the company!
- We stayed in a bungalow at the Camping Le Vieux Chêne. Basic camping and awesome tenants.
- Antwerp – Bauduen is 1100 Km. It took us 12 hours, including the necessary pit-stops and one detour.
- We went for 10 days at the beginning of July 2017.
We took some pictures as well, ha! Check them here: the South of France in 14 analog photos.
