It is a small holding and so there are goats and chickens , which make it very homely. We ate outside all the time and so were able to enjoy the stunning views from the property, which are extraordinarily beautiful. Inside is very cosy, if a bit dark & offering little of the view of the magnificent outdoors. We were very happy to self-cater as the closest restaurant is 8 km away down a narrow windy road! This is also shopping and a bar in the same location. We chose the Gite for the walking and were not at all disappointed as we had some of the best walks ever and would return happily. There are many other activities close by and plenty for children of all ages. The owners were kindness and thoughtfulness personified.

The spot was the perfect location to explore the gorge, walking or rafting. The house itself was clean spacious and had a lovely new kitchen. The host was welcoming and easy to contact when making arrival arrangements. The views from the terrace were the amazing and it was a great place to relax.

This is a lovely town surrounded by hills/mountains, perfect for touring the Gorge of Verdon. I think not too many people know of this spectacular gorge, but it really is astounding. Castellane has several businesses that specialise in rafting trips down the Verdon river - a really exciting white water trip! There are many other places to visit, including the Castillon lake, just a short drive outside Castellane - we spent many hours basking in the sun and swimming in the lovely turquoise water (no charge to access this relaxing area). Phillipe and Francoise were very welcoming, and the house was very clean with all one would need, including a barbecue area on the patio. We took our dog, and the garden was spacious and secure. Non-dog-owners and non-smokers please note that there was no evidence of dog or smoking smells at all in this stylish house. There is WiFi available in the house. We could park right outside the gate, and a walk to town is an easy10-15 minutes. Castellane has many outside cafes, on the town square or shaded back streets. The outstanding feature is the lovely Dame du Roc chapel that oversees the town - a dramatic illuminated site at night. This is a gruelling walk to get up to, but the view high over the town is well worth the effort! We thoroughly recommend this place… many thanks Francoise & Phillipe!
