This large Provençal ‘mas’ is an ideal holiday property for families and is divided into two totally independent homes - one occupied by the friendly English owners, the other being the holiday home.<BR><BR> Victoria and Simon are there if you need them and offer a welcome Rose and Provençal canapés to explain and introduce you to their part of Provence but wish our guests to feel totally independent.<BR><BR> It has a front patio and upper level back patio with entrance at the rear, direct access to all the bedrooms from the private parking area. The house also has 12 hectares of land around it to explore. It lies in a fabulous area for walking and bird watching and is just 10km from Forcalquier with its shops and restaurants and large Monday morning market.

We feel very fortunate to have come across this lovely estate with its beautiful views over the valley and its huge and stylish swimming pool and elegantly lit gardens. Our children liked nothing more than to spend the whole day lazing around the pool, playing games in its ample spaces, and then in the heat of the day to read in the armchairs under the pine tree. All this only ten minutes away from Forcalquier, a "real" small town with a great market, cafes, cinema, bookshops and almost no tourists. The weclome from the owners Simon and Victoria is warm and informal, they will give you great tips about where to go, waht to do and know and love the area. We especially enjoyed visiting Lurs, with its dramatic views westwards over the countryside which is almost Tuscan it its quality, and eastwards over the expansive Durance valley. A little further north we recommend a visit to the Ganagobie church, which has a beautiful 12th century carved portal and a dramatic winding road...

About the neighborhood
<BR><BR>The local town of Forcalquier (www.forcalquier.com) is built around the slopes of a steep conical hill, crowned by an octagonal chapel, Notre Dame de Provence, where the medieval citadel once stood. <BR><BR>The Cordeliers Convent was built in the 13th century by Franciscans; named "Cordeliers" because of their rope belts. This convent was occupied by monks until the Revolution. Today it is an international perfume school (part of the University Of Europe) and they have a fantastic day course - ‘Make your own perfume’.<BR><BR>Forcalquier is near the centre of the Provence lavender industry and in early July the plateau of Valensole is just lavender fields as far as the eye can see. Nearby we have the factory shops of the now famous L’Occ... more
