An exceptional setting
On the D-71, at a place called “Falaises des Cavaliers”, between Comps and Aiguines, is the Hotel des Cavaliers or Hotel du Grand Canyon du Verdon. The Cavaliers site is already fascinating in itself. The Grand Canyon du Verdon has a characteristic narrowness at this level which no doubt suggested the following legend. Cliffs on the right bank and those on the left bank being so close. It is said that in the past, riders could jump from one bank to another with their mount.
Opposite, you can also see the Chalet de la Maline which you reach from the dizzying route des Crêtes on the right side.
It sometimes happens that the customers of one or the other hotel launch sugars and teaspoons from their respective terrace … or almost.
Perched at the edge of this cliff, the Logis de France Grand Canyon du Verdon hotel overlooks the emerald river bed 300 meters. A unique natural setting in the Verdon Regional Natural Park’s territory. The ideal place to disconnect from the urban environment.
A comfortable hotel-restaurant
14 rooms, a restaurant (we recommend the chef’s house foie gras) and a terrace with a breathtaking view. Guests can also enjoy a spacious bar. It is in this exceptional setting that Laurence and her team welcome you throughout the summer.
History of the place
Before 1950, when the D71 was built, there was only a modest hunter’s hut on the site of the hotel. Access was by foot via paths, crossing Canjuers. When the road was finished, a bar-restaurant was first built. Passers-by who indulged in the joys of car tourism came to treat themselves to a gourmet stopover during an excursion. This is how a certain Winston Churchill put his signature in the guest book in 1958.
The clientele and the fame being at the rendezvous, the hotel as it is now was built in the early 80s. Sportsmen like Marc Pajot and Sébastien Loeb came to admire the stars from the panoramic terrace, why not you ? From this hotel, the Imbut trail begins. The departure of the superb Aqua Trekking Day, the most beautiful activity in Verdon!
