The Provence region

Provence has been described so many times, it is hard to do yet another description of this jewel in the French crown. Better to go and see films like Russel Crowe's "A Good Year" or read Peter Mayle's "A Year in Provence"

However, our area of Provence is known as 'the Secret Alps of Provence', rich with nature's beauty and not far from France's Grand Canyon, the Gorges du Verdon. The region is famous for its fossils from prehistoric times (protecting it by official decree from modern-day development) and its hot sulphur springs, such as those at Digne-les-Bains, making it the ideal destination for those interested in prehistory as well as those seeking a 'cure'.

The region and our captivating château will ensure a memorable and relaxing stay in France's picturesque and enchanting south-east.

Saint Andre Les Alpes

Saint Andre is a typical large Provencal village with plenty of cafes and bistros on the town square, and many markets selling local produce. You will also find numerous restaurants either in the village or close by, including some with some Michelin stars.

There is also a supermarket, an ATM and gas stations.

You will also find the charming Train des Pignes, a narrow gauge mounatin train that meanders from Nice up to Digne through the very picturesque mountains. The train station is just outside the village.

Finally, Saint Andre les Alpes is renowned for its extreme sports: there is a paragliding school where numerous international competitions take place, plus lots of mountain climbing, white water rafting, horse riding, water sports and hiking in and around the village. For the more sedate sports, you will find tennis courts, a mini golf and poney rides in the village.

"Fantastic location, let down in the detail"

Absolutely great location if you like solitude, which we do. We stayed in two of the three apartments but were let down with the facilities.

We wanted to enjoy freshly cooked produce and relax by the pool. Our apartment only had a microwave and our friends, who had the larger apartment with the only cooker could not get it working. We called out the handyman.

Water from taps is undrinkable, sulphur content high so had to buy gallons of fresh, did not see this in literature until arrival.

The pool looks great but even though I checked beforehand about the heating it did not work. Consequently, a very cold pool and limited bathing, none for the ladies. A real let down.

Offered a reduction on any future bookings but prefered a gesture on this occasion - none given. Will not return or recommend.

Renter asked for a discount upon the booking which was provided. Once there, we did our utmost to satisfy this renter, however he was only interested in a further discounted rate and as such was looking for any small detail to complain. We suffered a power outage which tripped the pool heater, but he was unwilling to understand the exceptional circumstances.
This was the first and last complaint we got from our guests.
