Getting to Verdon

By Air: 

Marseille: There are regular shuttle buses from Marseille Airport to Aix-en-Provence and UCPA can help with transport from there - contact UCPA directly for up to date information and to book transport options. If you arrive on Saturday or early on Sunday, we highly recommend that you spend some time in the town, it is beautiful.

By Train: During the summer there are daily TGV (fast train) service from Paris to Aix en Provence. UCPA can help with transport options from Aix en Provence - contact them directly to find out more information and to book. 


By Car: La Palud sur Verdon is easily accessible by road, the drive from the UK takes about 10 hours and goes through some nice scenery along the way but don’t forget to budget for French toll roads!
