A cool, calm and welcoming two bedroomed apartment perched on a hill, where you can enjoy magnificent views over the valley from the private garden. Ten minutes on foot from the small local village with shop, post office and bar/restaurant. Five minutes drive to local gorges or thirty minutes drive to the famous Lac de Ste Croix and then the stunning gorges of Verdon. Brilliant walking tracks, and ideal for nature lovers who appreciate the authentic rural France. Hosts speak French and English.
Our home is located in a particularly beautiful and geologically unique part of France. The Alpes de Haute Provence is one of the least densely populated areas of France and serves as the gateway from Provence to the Alps.
The air is incredibly pure and the sky at night is a wonder to behold due to the very low level of light pollution. In summer, the lavender perfumes the air and carpets the fields in vibrant purple below the clear blue skies. In spring, summer and autumn, outdoor actvities include hiking, watersports in the crystal-clear lakes and gorges, and climbing in the mountains. In winter, the small family-friendly ski fields are an hour away by car. There is a rich and fascinating history to discover with every step you take. Markets, village fairs and festivals allow you to meet locals and discover their culture, food and traditions. The surrounding towns and villages, many perched seemingly impossibly on the steep hills, are considered some of the most beautiful in France.
The apartment is on the lower level of our house but is completely independent. There are two bedrooms with a double bed in each, but there's also the possibility of using two sofa beds, so the capacity can increase to six people at no extra charge. We do not cater at the moment for babies, but children are more than welcome.
It is an ideal place for a single person or couple looking for space, comfort and tranquility, but serves just as well for a small group of family or friends (maximum six).
The kitchen is fully equipped and modern and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable.
On a balmy summer evening, sitting in the garden, the view of the sunset over the hills is really quite something. And then later, the stars will mesmerize you.
We look forward to meeting you at our place soon.
We expect our guests to leave the apartment as they found it. In case of breakages, or if heavy-duty cleaning is required, we will claim a percentage of the security deposit.
We are a British couple who moved to France a very long time ago, having travelled extensively throughout the world first. We believe we are incredibly lucky to have found such a beautiful place to settle and create our family, so we want to share the wonder of this amazing place with others. We are very discreet hosts; here to welcome you on your arrival, and available for any help with your adventures, but you have your own independent space to enjoy peacefully during your stay so please feel at home. We appreciate guests who respect others and the environment. Our passions are our family, music, travelling, surfing and nature. We look forward to welcoming you very soon.
