Driving 120 kilometer southeast from Nice, you find yourself in the heart of regional natural park of Verdon. Here are well known sites like Les Gorges Du Verdon, Lac De Sainte Croix, and Plateau De Valensole (lavender fields). To not forget beautiful medieval villages such as Tourtour and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. In the region is also a smaller and certainly less known village; Moissac-Bellevue.
Between vineyards and olive trees Moissac-Bellevue is overlooking the valley of Aups. We found the village to be a perfect base for our days in the countryside of Provence. Quiet and peaceful, away from mass tourism, fresh air, yet close proximity to explore Verdon. At hotel Bastide du Calalou we found tranquility, and everyone we met was helpful and genuinely interested in making sure we were having a good time.
