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.

My family and I stayed for two weeks, we really just wanted somewhere we could spend time together and decompress from our busy lives. The grounds are so peaceful and brimming with flora and forna, surrounded by breathtaking views of the countryside. The outside terrace was the perfect space for us to hang out together with a comfy sofa, an outdoor kitchen and a BBQ area. The pool was amazing and provided real respite from the sun. Our hosts, Marielle and Philippe were so welcoming and friendly. They made us feel right at home. They were attentive and also informative in terms of where could visit during our stay. They were even kind enough to share some figs from their orchard with us! We would definitely return to this wonderful place!

Nice location great views and very quiet. The pool is gorgeous so warm and the caretaker cleans it a couple of times during the week. You can hire bedding and towels, but would advise you take own towels as the hire ones are only bath towels and not bath sheets so a little small. Kitchen is nicely equipped but does not have a kettle or an oven just a job. There is a BBQ but very dirty and rusty. We bought a cheap BBQ in the supermarket and left it there. The caretakers only speak French but are very friendly and helpful. The villa on arrival was clean and the caretakers who live next door were quick to unlock and show us around. The villa is close to the amazing lavender fields a beautiful area. The village of Valensole has a couple of bars that also serve food and there are a couple of nice gift shops, a really lovely village with great friendly atmosphere. We would definitely think of staying at the villa again.

The weather was rather patchy, but probably as expected at that time of the year. We went with the idea of walking and seeing some of the lovely local villages. And that's what we did. The house was exactly what we wanted, and as described on the website. The décor is modern and very comfortable. The kitchen contains everything you need to self-cater. We loved the view over the orchards and vineyards, and there is a boules court and a swimming pool. These are both shared with the other gite. It's an 8-minute walk into Pierrevert where, among other shops, there is a bakery, butchers, wine co-operative and a small supermarket. Manosque is 10-15 minutes by car and has several big supermarkets and a delightful old centre. Christine and Frederic were very welcoming, left some lovely welcome gifts for our arrival, and were on hand to help if needed. All in all, a well nigh perfect place to stay!
