About the neighbourhood
'Le Diamant Noir' is situated in the Verdon National Park. Although you need go no further than our local, historic town of Aups for a taste of Provence and its famous truffle market, we are in a region of extreme natural beauty with a wealth of flora and fauna for nature lovers. Villages in the area include Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Tourtour, Salernes, Flayosc, Villecroze, Carcès,Cotignac. Situated in the foothills of the Alps we are surrounded by incredible scenery, from fortified medieval hill-top villages to the magnificent Gorges Du Verdon, the largest canyon in Europe. The Lac St Croix provides a base for many watersports. The lavender plateau of Valensole is only a short drive away. Surrounded by local producers there are gastronomic delights at every corner, not forgetting many ...
Getting around
A car is highly recommended for seeing the area at its best. There is a bus stop outside our door which links the neighbouring villages, and there is a route to the nearest TGV station. Cycling is very popular in the region, with designated cycle route. We are only 1km from the centre of Aups, where all facilities can be found, including several good restaurants, and the local market. However, the surrounding region is beautiful, and a car is necessary to explore the more remote areas
