Lou Marcelou is a beautiful village house in St Croix du Verdon, a typical provencal hilltop village in a stunning location overlooking Lac St Croix in the Parc National Du Verdon

The original building dates back to pre-Napoleonic times and is full of character and charm with exposed stone walls and original wooden beams.

The apartment is accessed from the magnificent terrace (18m/sq) which has fabulous views over the lake and distant hills. Here there is outside tables and chairs and potted Olive trees.

Entering into the apartment through patio doors there is a well equiped modern kitchen, a dining area and a living area with a large L shaped sette which doubles as a sofabed if required.

To the rear of the apartment is a raised mezzanine level with a French 'demi corbiere' double bed and ample wardrobes.

Under the mezzanine accessed down stone steps is the modern bathroom with large shower. There is also further storage cupboards here.

Into the back wall of the apartment there is a small grotto. In the local area these small caves were dug into the rock of hillside dwellings which made a well to collect rain water for animals. Now it makes a good place to keep your wine cool !

There is the use of a shared washing machine in the cellar under the terrace, where there is also additional storage space for bikes or other bulky items.

With breathtaking views of the lake and the foothills of the Alps, Lou Marcelou offers a superb location in this beautiful region of France and can be reached in under 2 hours from the airports of Marseilles and Nice to the south.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region

Lou Marcelou is a beautiful village house in St Croix du Verdon, a typical provencal hilltop village in a stunning location overlooking Lac St Croix in the Parc National Du Verdon.

The village is at the top of what is known as 'Green Provence' where the rolling hills of truffle woods give way to lavender fields, olive groves and vineyards in one direction and the foothills of the Alps in the other.

The region is probably best known for the Gorge du Verdon, Europes largest canyon which opens up into the northern end of Lac Sainte Croix. The gorge is over 700m deep at it deepest point and the Verdon river at the bottom flows into Lac Sainte Croix and gives it it's vivid blue/green colour.

Ste Croix du Verdon

The village is built high on a promontory overlooking the lake and is centred around it's sixteenth century church. The old village has some lovely houses and pretty public squares. There is a mini supermarket (2 min walk), together with a number of restaurants gift shops and bars.

There are only around 100 permanant residents but the numbers swell considerably in the season.

A vivid turquoise colour, the Lake is 14km long and 2km wide. It was formed in 1973 following the building of the barrage at the southern end to provide drinking water for the cities to the south. The Lac now provides a magnificent venue for a variety of activities on and around it, these include:

Sailing Club



Boat Hire – Pedalos, canoes, electric boat hire, Windsurfing

Riding School

Pony Club
