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
Car hire is recommended to see the best of the area. The nearest railway station ( TGV) is Les Arcs- Draguignan, which is about 40 minutes away. The varlib bus service operates in our area with links to larger towns and villages- bus stop just outside our gates. All facilities are within walking distance to include, supermarket, banks, medical services, shops and a choice of restaurants and bars.
