Provence Accommodations


Haute-Provence Luberon, a sweeping view from the Alps to the Mediterranean, taking you through age-old towns such as Forcalquier, Digne-les-Bains, Manosque or Sisteron with their sun-baked stones, nestled in the waves of fields of wheat or lavender, and garrigues fashioned by the colours and fragrance of a thousand sweet-smelling plants. In the Pays de Forcalquier, every stone is a witness to the age-old presence of man. The antique Domitian Way, medieval hilltop villages, Romanesque chapels and churches, country castles and wealthy farms.

Rental apartments in Forcalquier, Provence

In Forcalquier, our hometown in Provence, we have 4 apartments for holiday rental. The apartments have either one or two bedrooms with separate kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Three of the apartments can be connected into a four/five bedroom house - perfect for a large family or a group of friends.

They are all located in one of the nicest streets in the old town, rue Saint Mary – a charming, cobblestoned street, leading up to a hilltop park. One of the unique aspects of the location is the fact that rue Saint Mary is a cul-de-sac; and extremely quiet with no traffic noise. However, the main square with its lovely cafes and restaurants is just around the corner. It is certainly convenient to be able to wander down in the evening, have a lovely meal with a bottle of wine and not have to worry about who is driving!

The apartments have either one or two bedrooms with separate kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Two of the apartments can be connected into a three/four bedroom house - perfect for a large family or a group of friends. They have modern conveniences and have been decorated in the Provencal style. One of the apartments has a delightful terrace with lovely views of our garden and citadel hilltop park. On top of the hill, overlooking the old town is a 19th century chapel set in a wooded cemetery, marking the site of the former citadel.

In the past, Forcalquier was a favourite residence of the counts of Provence and an internationally renowned cultural, political and economic centre. Today, Forcalquier hosts one of the liveliest and most colourful markets in the region. Here you will find all the produce of the season: lavender, honey stalls and artists selling their wares. Wander through the restored old town with its narrow streets, basking in the middle of rolling luxuriant scenery and discover the many interesting nearby sites like the Verdon Gorges or the picturesque villages in the famous Luberon Valley.
