Charles and Annick Speth purchased this barn in 2001

Why Charles and Annick Speth chose Seyne

The gîte has been refurbished so as to preserve the authentic character of the building, but with an eye for great comfort (3 stars "Gîte de France").

What makes this barn unique

Quiet surroundings, panoramic views and an exceptionally sunny location, close to the main ski-resorts of the valley and to the lake of Serre-Ponçon.

Séjour inoubliable en Haute-Provence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué une semaine fin février 2016 le gîte des Silves, location décidée depuis plusieurs mois. Ancienne ferme rénovée et décorée avec goût par les propriétaires, qui ont mis en valeur leur patrimoine pour le rendre attrayant : le bois omniprésent a conservé toute sa place. Le gîte est très confortable, impeccable et bien chauffé pour 8 personnes avec la possibilité d'accueillir 5 à 6 personnes de plus notamment dans la mezzanine au dessus de la vaste pièce à vivre. Le grand luxe : vue sur la montagne alentour, salon autour de la cheminée, quatre chambres, deux salles de bains, deux toilettes ! L'équipement est récent et adapté pour un long séjour. La situation du gîte près d'un village est idéale pour visiter la région en toutes saisons. Bref, nous recommandons chaudement ce lieu.
