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 above the village, and a vista from the secluded 5-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. 400), 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 small towns of Castellane and Moustiers Sainte Marie are also not too far away – giving you numerous options for entertainment, dining and shopping.
We cater in a comfortably large kitchen featuring a Godin, wood-burning/electric/gas stove. A large fridge freezer is big enough to cater for a large family and there’s plenty of room for food preparation on the ample worktops.
The communal part of the house, a large lounge area features an open seating arrangement in front of the wood burner with flat-screen TV, home theatre system and DVD player. There is also a bureau space for working. At present there is no wired internet connection, however, if you have a data sim card or similar device you are able to get a connection via your broadband provider. However the lack of 24 hour internet access allows for you to fully disconnect and truly enjoy the peace and quiet of all that surrounds you.
Enjoy the outside from within in this floor-to-ceiling glass conservatory. Even in winter this part of the house is cozy 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.
Sleeping & Bathroom
The house will sleep 8 people comfortably. There is a large double master bedroom with ensuite, a double bedroom, and two twin rooms, and the 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 comprises a washing machine in the utility room, with drying space in the form of a line and pegs in the garden! Fresh air and sunshine are all that’s needed to dry those clothes!
Two terraces offer a number of dining options and are perfect for a spot of BBQ’ing. 4 hectares of garden and woods takes care of yoga, sunbathing or a spot of walking. Pick up the GR4 from the end of the garden or just sit and take it all in. There is ample room for several vehicles on the gravel drive.
