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