Just 2.5 kilometres separates Camping La Barque from the beach of St Aygulf. But, as an escape route from the bustle of the coast, this neat and tidy little parc is hard to beat. Enjoying an enviable position along the river Argens, La Barque is one of our smaller parcs, so your days are likely to be spent happily splashing in the pool, while your kids can take advantage of the parcs free Kids Club, open every morning and afternoon in July and August. Or splash around safely in the paddling pool. Teenage children can dive into the parcs animation and sports activities from aquagym to zumba. You can too! Theres an on-site restaurant, and a pleasant pool-side bar. If youre feeling active, you can hire a bike and cycle around the little lanes that criss-cross their way across the coastal countryside. Enviable position along the river Argens only 2.5kms from the beach of St Aygulf.

The largest water park on the CÃ´te dÂAzur is just 5km away! There's something for all ages with mini parks and splash pools for younger children, lagoon pools for those wanting to relax, and scary chutes like the King Cobra and Black Hole for those adrenaline thrills. It's a great family day out!
In the hills, to the north of Nice, sits the famous perfume town of Grasse. It's been associated with perfume since the 16th century and there are still around 30 makers here today. Take a tour of a perfume factory and indulge in a little shopping!
Just 30km away is the medieval hilltop village of Grimaud, providing wonderful panoramic views over the region. Explore the village, then drop down to the coast to walk around colourful Port Grimaud; known as the 'Venice of Provence' the brightly painted houses alongside the many canals give it lots of charm.
Further afield (it's a full day out) is the spectacular 'Grand Canyon' of Europe. Situated in central Provence turquoise blue waters flow through high limestone cliffs. You can drive around the top (it's about 130km long), or explore by kayak. One of the most popular viewpoints is at Point Sublime near Rougon, and the view from the bridge at the west of the gorges (Pont de Galetas) is also very lovely.
