There is a lovely little balcony which is perfect for breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening. The views from here are beautiful - over Barcelonnette town to the mountains beyond. The apartment is on the second floor of the house. There is plenty of storage space in the apartment itself and also in the basement where you can safely leave bikes etc. Barcelonnette is a lovely town with several cultural events going on and plenty of good places to eat. The town center is a short walk away from the apartment. There are endless opportunities in the valley for cycle rides and walks catering for all different levels of fitness and ability. We're hoping that it won't be too long until a return visit!

Shower was excellent and kitchen was well equipped. Lots of parking out the front and a short walk into the bustling town of Barcelonette which has a decent sized supermarket. Martine was very friendly and spoke excellent English. As we were there to walk she was able to help direct us to some lovely routes. We went in September when the chair lifts etc had stopped for the summer so if this interests you, best to go in July or August.
