As soon as you get to Castellane, You will be surprise by the rock overhanging the city like a divinity protecting the town. Castellane is the smallest subprefecture in France in terms of population. Its charm and the Verdon Gorge close by give it a particular interest. It???s an ideal place between the Gorges road and Castillon Lake. Half Provencal, half Alpine, the town will be an excellent place to spend your vacation in Verdon. Castellane isn???t small, but nor is it big. You will then appreciate this city, its big square place with many stores, and a market on Saturday morning. A pleasure to go all over it. Those who want to follow Verdon???s road will go east, whereas those who prefer to swim will go North, to Castillon Lake (stop by the dam to see the view on the downstream section). We recommend you the beaches in Saint Julien du Verdon. Another lake is near by : Caudanne Lake. Swimming is forbidden, but if you like pikes and zanders fishing, enjoy !
