The Chateau d''Esparron is a listed historic building and has been in the Castellane family ever since its foundation in the 13th century. Overlooking the old village and the lake on one side and the countryside on the other, the original building was added on to up until the 18th century and so is an interesting mix of architectural styles. The imposing defensive tower and the broad stone spiral staircase are particularly remarkable. In restoring the château we have been careful to preserve its original character and charm whilst making it comfortable and welcoming for our guests, whether in a guest bedroom or in a self catering flats. A shaded rose garden with garden furniture and a Ping-Pong table are at your disposal. The castle overlooks the clear waters of the Lac d''Esparron, one of a string of lakes along the Verdon river, and very pleasant for swimming and boating. Esparron-de-Verdon is situated in the Verdon Natural Park, and while the breathtaking Verdon Canyon should not be missed, the whole area is one of outstanding natural beauty.
