Bauduen sums up the spirit of Verdon in a nutshell. A very pretty, authentic village with old Provençal houses. Sitting on the edge of the Lake of Sainte-Croix, at the foot of a small cliff, it offers walks, water activities and even a truffle field.
Built against the cliff face, and lapped by the waters of Sainte-Croix lake, this village, with its narrow streets, paved stairways and ancient pink roofs basking in the sunshine, has maintained all its former authenticity and medieval character.
Fabulous settings, thousands of Playmobils, to combine life, art, history and creation. You will rediscover your child's soul by immersing yourself in fabulous scenery of animated scenes of thousands of Playmobil characters...
The "Lacs et Gorges du Verdon" territory is one of the intermunicipal offices of the Var. It covers the whole of the north-east of the department. Its territory crosses the Gorges du Verdon, extending from the Artuby Pre-Alps to the Quinson dam.
Situated between the Haut Var and the Alpes de Hautes Provence, 1h30 from Marseille, Toulon or Manosque, the Sainte Croix Lake is an artificial water reservoir created in 1973, in the heart of the Verdon regional natural park.
Bauduen is a "little port" with sailing boats. It is a nice place to be.
The Bauduen astronomical observatory is located far from the lights of the cities, 5 minutes from the village. Evenings of discovery of the constellations and observation of the sky with telescopes and themed evenings are offered all year round.
