A campsite with traditional buildings
Camping Le Moulin was founded in 1962 at the banks of the Verdon river, which was wounding through the prairies, stretching its 4 ha site around a building from the 18th century. The site houses a water source but also an old mill, which brought the campsite its name. Several years ago, the traditional buildings of stone served as a setting for a few scenes of the movie Forbidden Games.
A new mill
In 1973, the construction of a hydroelectric dam on the Verdon gave birth to the Sainte-Croix lake and the inhabitants of the prairies were expropriated. The former village of Les Salles, the old Aiguines bridge and Camping Le Moulin were swallowed by the water. The Bagarry family had to say goodbye to their campsite, but most of all to a family building filled with history. When the campsite was reconstructed a few hundred metres further away, it kept the name of Le Moulin. Since 2007 the youngest son of the family took over the management of the campsite, in order to continue the family tradition.
