The Provence region
The properties are situated just outside La Rochegiron, northeast of Apt and northwest of Manosque and 4k from the beautiful fortified village of Banon, which has good food shops, a street market on Tuesday mornings and a superb bookshop, Le Bleuet. It also has a couple of very good inexpensive restaurants, we particularly like l Le Café des Voyageurs with its excellent set menu. If you enjoy walking, you could plan your day around lunch in Banon! The sleepy village of Saumane is also 4k. It has a restaurant, La Bergerie with simple home cooking, and a friendly café-bar with large shady terrace. Forcalquier, about 25k, is a pleasant town with an extensive street market on Mondays, a large supermarket and a good choice of restaurants and small shops. This is an 'undiscovered' part of Provence and there are many old villages to explore. A good example is Simaine-la-Rotonde, a beautiful spiralling medieval village with winding streets and a covered market place. Another village nearby is Le Contadour where Jean Giono, the French author and pacifist, set up a summer commune in the 1930s to celebrate peace, ecology and the return to nature. Another possible day trip might be to one of three large lakes: the Lac Serre Ponçon, Lac Sainte Croix and Lac d'Esparron. These all have beached areas for swimming and most watersports are available. Other activities available in the area include hang-gliding and hot-air ballooning.
