The small town of Banon is a popular choice of holiday destination for those wishing to explore the countryside and natural delights of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region of France, and is a particularly favourite with artists and photographers searching for inspiration. It is cheese, however, that is Banon’s biggest claim to fame, and even if the fromage is not to your taste, you are sure to enjoy the glass of local wine that is advised to help wash it down!

The cheese is soft, white and pungent, and should be accompanied by a glass of local red wine and some fresh bread. The real cheese lovers should visit Banon during May, the month of the annual Cheese fete.

Lavender fields and wheat fields are prominent features of the local landscape and the rolling hills provide many great vantage points to enjoy views and take photographs from.

Modern, peaceful, beautiful place to stay...

5 of 5
Nicole & Jeff were wonderful hosts, the apartment is clean and modern but also feels like home. The outdoor space is brilliant, waking up to the rising sun over the cliffs, looking out to olive trees, vineyards and lavender fields. The location of the house is very peaceful and very safe. A great place to cycle and have day trips to many of the picturesque french villages... Lacoste, Rousillion, Bonnieux. Aix en Provence is a great place to get lost in the many streets full of shops, cafes and restaurants. We will definitely be back! Merci Beaucoup!

Lovely villa highly recommended

5 of 5
The villa was very well equipped and superbly located for visiting many beautiful villages, verdon gorge, Avignon, Oranges etc. The pool and garden were well maintained with shade at all times of the day. The owner was very helpful and responded to queries very promptly - thanks in particular for resolving the cafetière issue ! Would recommend taking mosquito repellant but overall would recommend property fully!
