About the property

Nice house in nature to live outside in summer and comfortable in winter

Between Revest-Des-Brousses and St Michel-l'Observatoire

A house built on the ruins of an old barn in the middle of the field, from the time they were covered with pastures, ideal to be closer to nature.

Inside: impeccable interior, kitchen, cozy living room with fireplace, 2 cozy bedrooms. Outside: terrace in the shade, summer kitchen with oven, barbecue, pizza oven, sun, sun loungers, all without vis-à-vis, on a plot of 3000 square meters.

In the quiet of the Haute-Provence, and its agriculture on a human scale. Here one lives to the rhythm of the earth and sun, with small plots of cultivated land sometimes in sage, sometimes lavender. At night the stars seem closer, brighter, why the village of Saint Michel hosts several astronomical observatories open to the public in summer.

The garden of 3000m2 with many fruit trees that are available to you with the house offer a setting to enjoy your holiday in the countryside. The cozy house has been designed to enjoy outdoor and warm sun of Provence, equipped with a large terrace with a summer kitchen and pizza oven in front of the house and roof terrace solarium with sun loungers. Access to two bedrooms upstairs can be done through the terrace or a tread stairs in the living room. It is also possible to enjoy this home all year round thanks to the fireplace that heats quickly. The many mushrooms in the area are opportunities to browse through the oak forests.

But the Haute-Provence is not the nature, many hilltop villages dominate the heights like sentinels watching over the region. The cobbled streets that run between the houses to take you to the highest points, castles and churches. Village squares open all year local farmers markets, which make you discover the flavors of the South and fruit picked ripe.

Erholsam mitten in der Natur

  • 4 of 5

Alles da was man braucht, nette Vermieter, schöne Umgebung, viele Wander- und Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Im Herbst in der Wohnung ein bisschen dunkel- aber eigentlich ist man sowieso immer draußen. Entsprach völlig den angegebenen Kriterien.

le calme

Endroit difficile à trouver tout seul, les propriétaires sont fort sympathiques.

Tranquillité absolue, j'ai fortement apprécié la balancelle ;)

Je recommande +++

semaine de quiétude

  • 5 of 5

nous avons passé une très bonne semaine dans ce petit endroit que l'on nomme le "CABANON"!!! je dirais que c'est un cabanon de luxe!! après de bonnes marches dans les collines ou dans la montagne , il est agréable de se retrouver au cabanon près de la cheminée , bien installés dans les fauteuils très très confortables!!!!!

c'est un endroit charmant, calme, doté d'un espace extérieur magnifique.... tout nous invite à la quiétude et au repos.
