This is a beautiful gite in a lovely area surrounded by fields and lovely views of the mountains and the hilltop village of Lurs. The owners are very friendly and the gite is brand new and very well-designed, clean and comfortable. Everything being on one floor with three external doors from the loung/kitchen gave a light and airy feel - you could watch the sun rise and sun set!
In time, with the planned landscaping of the garden/driveway it will be almost perfect. We had chosen a gite with airconditioning on the HomeAway site but at the moment this hasn't got airconditioning so do double check with the owners if this is a priority for you, it was our only negative. The larger apartment that is attached does appear to have airconditioning. It is a very well positioned gite with good access roads to many places of interest beyond the traditional Provencial towns of western Provence. Walking, cycling, medieval village and town exploring and of course the weather!
We had a very pleasant and relaxing week in this house. The owners were very kind and accommodating including the lovely dog who would sit outside with us.
We went to the museum of pre-histories at Verdon which was fascinating and very well presented including the English language commentary. We were also treated to a display of tombstoning at Verdon gorge where they had boats for hire.
We didn’t use the car much as we could walk to the supermarket and also to the centre of Manosque which is picturesque. We loved having lunch there and the Lebanese restaurant and Les Deux Freres were particularly good.
We wanted to relax and so did not move around much but there was lots to interest us had we wanted it.
Altogether a lovely place to be
