Le Moulin, 60 years of history
A campsite with traditional buildings
Founded in 1962 on the banks of the Verdon, which meandered through the plain at the time, Camping Le Moulin covered 4 hectares around an 18th-century stone building. This spring-fed estate was also home to an old mill which gave its name to the campsite. A few years earlier, these old stone buildings had served as the backdrop for several scenes in the film Forbidden Games.
A new Moulin In 1973, the construction of a hydroelectric dam on the Verdon gave birth to Lac de Sainte-Croix, and the inhabitants of the plain were expropriated. The ancient village of Les Salles, the old Aiguines bridge and Camping le Moulin disappeared under the waters. The Bagarry family had to say goodbye to their campsite, but above all to a family home steeped in history. So when the campsite had to be rebuilt a few hundred meters away, it kept its name, Le Moulin. The management of this establishment was taken over by the family’s youngest son.
