Located in the quaint village of La Palud-sur-Verdon you are right in the heart of the stunning Gorges du Verdon – one of the greatest tourist attractions in Provence, if not Europe. Explore this area of spectacular natural beauty starting from 1.5km from the village, and a vista from the secluded 4-bedroom Maison Caunier, that will take your breath away.

At an elevation of 1100m above sea level, Maison Caunier enjoys panoramic views of La Palud-sur-Verdon as well as the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it. Above the morning mist often settling above the village, Maison Caunier is the first to benefit from the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

You are literally a stone’s-throw away from the village of La Palud sur Verdon (pop. 358 as of 2024), yet you will feel secluded at the top of the winding lane taking you up to the last house on the hill. The village has everything you need such as a bakery, grocery store, restaurants, bars, tour operators and of course, immediate access to the beautiful Gorges du Verdon. The bustling market towns of Castellane and Moustiers Sainte Marie are also not too far away – giving you numerous options for entertainment, dining and shopping.


The house will sleep 7 people comfortably. There are three large double or twin bedrooms, (a triple room can be accommodated) an ample bathroom with free-standing bath and shower completes the upstairs accommodation. A bathroom with shower and toilet and a separate toilet complete the downstairs accommodation. The house can be rented (with your hosts on site of course), as a whole or by room.

Enjoy the outside from within in this floor-to-ceiling glass conservatory. Even in winter this part of the house is cosy and warm from the day-long sunshine. A small wood burner heats up those cooler nights and seating for 5 or 6 is perfect for drinks or breakfast or just kicking back and reading a book.
