Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
The Haute Alpes area in Northern Provence is relatively undiscovered. It is a stunning region and there is so much to do and see in each season. There are fantastic local activities including rafting, canoeing, climbing, mountain biking and hiking. Whilst a car is recommended, there are superb facilities in the local village within 2 minutes walking distance selling local product (baker, butcher, post office, supermarket). The beautiful gardens (nearly 1 acre) at La Musardiere are private and secluded if you don't want to actually venture out, with beautiful fruit trees and a mini-mountain at the back of the property. There are stunning views of the local mountains and a selection of patios meaning you can enjoy the beautiful morning sun right through to the evening sunset. La Musardiere is also very accessible from the UK - it takes approximately 9 hours by car from Calais, and there are also excellent links by air or TGV. With 300 days sunshine a daily dip in the pool is just perfect. The villa terraces are magical first thing in the morning as the sun pops up over the mountain and just as magical in the evening.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Haute Alpes is a relatively undiscovered part of Northern Provence. With a reported 300 days sunshine a year, a holiday at La Musardiere is perfect any time of year. The villa is situated in the small town of Aspres sur Buech with local shops only a 2 minute walk away including bakers, butcher, supermarket, tabac and post office. Further afield there are supermarkets in Veynes and Serres, just a 10 minute drive away. There are many activities nearby to keep you busy, including hiking, canoeing, rockclimbing, caving, gliding, parapente, mountain biking, tennis, sailing on the local lake. In July the Tour de France often passes locally. Or for a quieter holiday simply relax by the pool and enjoy a BBQ. The villa is set in private gardens with a mini-mountain for the children to explore. A day trip to Sisteron or Gap with markets, shopping and sight seeing are definitely worth it. In winter, the villa is only 20 mins from the local ski resort of Jarjette. Alternatively, the larger ski resorts of La Joup de Loope and Super Devoluy are 45 minutes away.
