Set in the heart of the Regional Nature Park of the Verdon, Quinson is in an exceptional setting. Originally built on the heights, Quinson is now by the side of the lake. Rock climbers can enjoy the area's limestone cliffs, whilst swimming and canoeing is also very popular. There is a nautical base in the village and the lakes of Esparron and of Sainte Croix are very close. Walkers will delight in the breathtaking beauty of the nature surrounding Quinson. On the cultural front, you can visit the prehistoric cave of la Baume Bonne, the museum of Prehistory. You can also of course choose to relax by the clear blue waters of the lake of Sainte Croix or in the shade of the Mediterranean trees.
