Brilliant accomodation a stones throw from the Verdon Gorge.

5 of 5
Thomas is very helpful and a pleasant guy. The accommodation retains its old character with a modern touch. Has all that you could ask for in an apartment in a beautiful sleepy village location. Made a great base for us to access the gorge for climbing, running and hiking.

The property is clean & nice in a stunning position; semi-detached, it is part of the owner's house

4 of 5
The Gite is very adequate accommodation for a good weather holiday stay. 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.
