Another must-see section of the gorge is the Styx du Verdon, associated with the mythical river Styx from Greek mythology. The Styx du Verdon is a small sub-canyon within the gorge, and it is a narrow passage with impressive rock formations, deep underwater coves, and more. Apart from this, you can also find many beautiful coves. One of the most famous is the Baume-Aux-Pigeones and the Échelles Imbert, featuring six stairways and 252 steps along the steep gorge walls, nonetheless offering unforgettable views.
If you wish to see more of the Verdon Gorge and explore the region, then you’ll definitely need more than a day, so we suggest you plan a weekend away from your stay at Villa Hippocampo in Villefranche-sur-Mer. Some of the beautiful places you can stay at are Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon, among others. You will be sleeping in some of the most beautiful villages in France, overlooking the beautiful limestone cliffs and enjoying local delicacies and so much more.
