Les Salles-sur-Verdon
The Essential
The modern village was built in 1974 to compensate for the disappearance of the old village, swallowed up by the Lac de Ste-Croix after the building of the dam. The only architectural features to escape the water were the church steeple and the village fountain, which were rebuilt higher up. The shores of the turquoise coloured Lake Saint Croix are home to a beach and water sports centre.
