I spent two wonderful weeks in this house and the village. The house is well equipped and comfortable. The terrace is a special space. Having breakfast on the terrace, taking in the fabulous view when all is quiet and tranquil was a real treat. Evenings on the terrace were similarly awesome. The terrace faces west and you can see the sun setting. We used Baudinard as a base to explore the region. There are lots of beautiful villages close by worth visiting, and the Verdon Gorge and the lakes not to be missed. Within the Baudinard itself, check out Place de L'Eglise (it's easy to miss), and get some local olive oil from the producer who lives just along the street. The restaurant Le Chardon (over the road) is well worth a visit (or many) not least of all because the owner is so genial.
The village doesn't have a bakery so if you want fresh bread and croissants you have to travel to one of the nearby villages to get them. I established, but right at the end of my stay, that it is possible to get these from Le Chardon (but I can't confirm this).
This property has all we could look for... very rustic French, a great location, in and very close to beautiful villages and nature, very quiet, warm and cosy and easy accessibility by car.
The 2 downsides we had was the lack of thumble drier to dry the clothes and the very basic equipment available in the kitchen.
Just one note of caution... if you have accessability issues, this property can be uncomfortable. To access the property just behind the door, you have to walk up a steep staircase to get you to the first floor. Hence if you are uncomfortable to walk up steep stairs, think twice before renting.
The best reward in this property in the beautiful terrace... we could not really enjoy it being very cold at the time of our visit, but the views are magnificant from there.
We would recommend this place and consider visiting again in the future.
Different kind of house- rustic and very french, but located in the most beautiful place in France. Need a good barbecue for use at the balcony and remember to shop on the Way because Aups is 16 km away.
