La Barraque

Are you looking for rest and space? Do you want to be awakened by the sound of birds? You are welcome in our guesthouse, which is in the middle of the land of thyme, rosemary, olive trees and lavender and about 20 minutes from Manosque and 45 minutes north of Aix and Provence, in the rugged hills of Var .

It is part of our agricultural domain, where we grow rye, sunflowers and / or corn. Just before the plain of the Durance River, 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 walk or to find a quiet spot for a good book, a picnic, an attempt to spot 'wildly' or cooling at the stream Who crosses our site. Our dogs may like to come with you and our donkey and horse will feel very welcome if you walk along.

We would like to inform you about what is happening in our beautiful region while enjoying a glass of rosé. We live in the same area, so always available for your questions. The guesthouse has a maximum capacity of 12 people. Spread over 2 apartments and 3 double rooms.

The saltwater pool measures 5x12m and is not suitable for small children who can not swim. The landing section overlooks a lavender field. Around the house there are various seats and (dining) tables so you can search your own spot. There is a big bbq.
Our chickens provide fresh eggs.

In 2002, due to the wonderful climate and enjoyment of this beautiful region, you'll be in another landscape for an hour (classic). Never dreamed of running a guesthouse but through space it has grown automatically and we find it a nice change to meet all sorts of people, occasionally having a meal together and giving people a fun vacation.

    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.
