House In Provence / Villa Dans Les Alpes De Haute
Charming Provençal style stone house from the seventeenth century, restored in a style which combines old and modern features (the old woodwork has been preserved, for instance).
Three levels, one containing the living area which has two balconies, one containing the bedrooms, and one containing various commodities such as a summer kitchen, washing machine etc; From this level you alos have access to a small courtyard with garden table and chairs, barbecue etc.
There are three bedrooms, one with a 140 cm bed, one for the children with a 90 cm bed and a sofa bed for two, and one with 140 cm mezzanine bed and a baby cot. There are two bathrooms.
The lower level has room for further beds if needed.
Baby equipment is available, as well as many games for children.
Bicycles are also available.
The village is located between the sea and the mountains, between the Alps and Provence, an hour and a quarter from Marseille and forty-five minutes from Gap.
The Verdon Canyon and the villages of Haute-Provence and the Luberon are all nearby.
The nearest motorway access point is ten minutes away, and there is a railway station nearby.
There is a bakery, a grocer's shop and a butcher's shop, a pharamacy, the post office and some restaurants within walking distance.
There are lots of sports facilities in the area, and you can go hiking, biking, climbing, etc.
Château-Arnoux has a hang-gliding centre, a swimming pool with water slides which is open during the summer, and a lake where you can go fishing. Climmbin rocks are within walking distance.
Other places of interest in the area are for instance the citadel of Sisteron, the Alexandra David-Néel museum, and the natural geology reserve of Haute-Provence.

We are a couple with two children, a 5-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son. We sometimes travel with an extra person.
We would like to do a house swap with people on the Atlantic Coast but we are open to offers.
We are both teachers, so we are flexible about the dates.
We like open-air activities: hiking, skiing, scuba diving etc.
We also love cooking, and having dinners with family and friends.
