La Barraque

Are you looking for peace and quiet? Do you want to be woken up by the sound of birds? You are welcome in our 'guesthouse' that right in the land of thyme, rosemary, olive trees and lavender is and roughly 20 min. From Manosque and 45 min. North of Aix en Provence, in the rugged hills of the Var .

It is part of our agricultural domain, where we grow rye, sunflowers and / or corn. Just before the plain of the River Durance, we live in the last hills that form the foothills of the Gorges du Verdon. The nearest neighbors live 4 km away, and you have our 170 ha at your disposal to stroll or to find a quiet spot to read a book, have a picnic, try something wild to 'spot' or cool off in the stream which runs through our grounds. Our dogs could possibly go along with you and our donkey and horse find it very nice if you could just walk by.

We will inform you about what to see in our beautiful region while sipping a glass of rosé. We live on the premises, so always available for your questions. The guesthouse has a maximum capacity of 12 people. spread over two apartments and three two-person rooms.

The saltwater pool is 5x12m and is not suitable for small children who can not swim. The landing area opens onto a lavender field. Around the house are several seating areas and (dining) tables so you can find your own place. There is a large bbq.
Our chickens provide fresh eggs.

In 2002 came because of the wonderful climate and daily enjoying this beautiful region, where you in one hour (classical) driving in a different landscape is. Never dreamed of running a guesthouse but the space is automatically increased, and we think it's a nice change to meet all kinds of people, occasionally to eat a meal together, and people have a good holiday.

    Leven als God in Frankrijk. Wat een rust en wat een uitzicht. Goede supermarkt en andere winkeltjes/bank etc op klein kwartiertje rijden. Leuke Franse plaatsen en mooie natuur (Lac Esparron) binnen een half uur rijden. In een straal van een uur rijden nog veel meer moois: Gorges du Verdon, Lac St Croix, Luberon.
    Helga en Andre zijn heel gastvrij en behulpzaam en zullen er alles aan doen om het je naar de zin te maken en kunnen veel vertellen over de omgeving. Feest voor de kinderen:
    hooi halen met het "golfkarretje" en de ezel en het paard voeren, kippen voeren, eieren rapen. Mooie vogels te spotten, herten, zwijnen, maar dan moet je een beetje "geluk" hebben.
    (kindvriendelijkheid: voor ons ruim voldoende, maar zwembad is niet afgeschermd en er is geen kinderbad)
    We komen graag een keer terug hier.
