The surrounding area of camping Les Lavandes
Camping Les Lavandes Valensole is at the entrance to the Gorges du Verdon.
The village of Valensole has a magnificent market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. You will find all the famous products of the plateau.
A charming little village, Valensole is fortunate to have quality shops, including its restaurants. From bistro to gastronomic, there is something for everyone.
The dessert of the gourmets is not in remainder, with an artisanal ice-cream maker with the impossible to circumvent ice with Lavender, soft and light. It is the ideal refreshment in summer.
At the crossroads of the Var and Provence, you can visit other famous markets, such as Forcalquier on Mondays, Oraison on Tuesdays, Riez on Wednesdays, Gréoux les bains on Thursdays, Moustiers Sainte Marie on Fridays and Vinon sur Verdon on Sundays.
Organise your days around cult sites just a stone’s throw from the campsite.
Moustiers Sainte Marie on Friday for its market, its unique atmosphere with an early morning arrival, rewarded by a swim in the clear water of the Sainte Croix lake in the afternoon, guarantee you unforgettable memories.
As the lake is closed to combustion engines, it is very quiet.
From the lavender fields, many activities are available to you: hiking, cycling, walks, visits…
Close to Manosque and its many shops, you can enjoy the total change of scenery of Valensole with modern comfort.
Within a few kilometres of Valensole, you will find famous tourist sites and markets such as Forcalquier, Gréoux les Bains, Riez, and around the lakes of Serre-Ponçon, Esparron, Quison, Sainte Croix du Verdon…
Not forgetting this unique land with a visit to the ochre quarries, or the buildings that have stood the test of time: “les Bories”.
And why not take a trip to the Côte d’Azur, which is only 1h30 away from Valensole.
The more sporty among you will enjoy this perfect setting for hiking with routes for all levels (Gorges de Trevans, l’imbut…) or cycling with new Gravel Bike routes through the fields.
