Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence your home away from home

Alpes-de-Haute-Provence accommodation is set in the heart of the Alpine region of the Cote d’Azur in southern France. It is one of the largest and most sparsely populated of all the French departments, with some of the most uniquely beautiful landscapes to be found in Europe, much of which is protected.

Things to do on holiday in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

The endless walking, hiking and trekking possibilities from an Alpes-de-Haute-Provence villa are a huge asset for visitors. In a land where you can be totally at peace, without another person in sight, you can walk from a rocky, lavender covered plateau, along the shores of a tranquil mountain lake and into the rugged peaks of the mountains in just a few kilometres. There are four incredible National Parks in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the Luberon Regional National Park, the Haute-Provence Geological Reserve, the Mercantour National Park and the Verdon Regional National Park, all of which protect stunningly beautiful Alpine environments, which cannot fail to enchant and inspire visitors.

An Alpes-de-Haute-Provence holiday rental villa also gives you the opportunity to explore the landscape on horse back or by bike, as well as the option to take to the sky, soaring high above the dramatic canyons and gushing rivers which have carved the scenery below. Paragliding and hangliding are exceptionally exhilarating activities to enjoy from an Alpes-de-Haute-Provence villa, and tuition is available from many of the larger towns in the department. The rivers and lakes provide a third outlet for outdoor sports, with canoeing, swimming and white water rafting, especially in spring when the melt waters fill the rivers.

During the winter, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence accommodation is taken by snow sport enthusiasts. There are many options for Alpine skiing in resorts, cross-country skiing resorts and many options for dog sledding, Nordic ski touring, snow shoe trails and ice climbing.

Places to holiday in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

Saint-Andre-Les-Alpes is a stunning town at the end of Lac de Castillon, miles from the hoards of tourist crowds of the Cote d’Azur. An Alpes-de-Haute-Provence villa or holiday rental accommodation here is perfect for gaining access to the Mercantour National Park in summer and the ski stations of Colmars and Allos in winter.

Situated in the lower valleys, Saint-Laurent-du-Verdon in the south of the department is a charming village surrounded by endless walking trails, and the closest place to take Alpes-de-Haute-Provence accommodation to explore the Verdon Gorges.

Entrepierres is an idyllic stone village, hidden deep in the department. It is hard to describe the magical, secluded and tranquil atmosphere of the village, and it really has to be seen to be believed.

Travel to Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

The closest airports to any of the accommodation in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence are Marseille-Provence Airport (MRS) and Nice-Cote d’Azur Airport (NCE), both of which are just outside the department. Taking a rental car is the best way to really get the most out of this stunning destination, but taxis and busses are available to most towns and villages.
