The views of the mountains are sublime and forever changing with the light. We especially enjoyed the evenings with a BBQ looking out onto this scenery.The house is well positioned to see the sites of nearby Sisteron or further afield Gorges Du Verdon. Christine was always available for the questions we asked of her. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended. Martin
