View video films of Le PoirierWelcome to Le Poirier

Provence Villa - Lac de St CroixLe Poirier has spectacular views over the surrounding forests and lake and accommodates up to eight people in three bedrooms, open plan living/dining room and kitchen with all modern conveniences, and a large garden, balcony and terrace.

Le Poirier is ideally situated to enjoy a range of activities from watersports in the nearby Lac de Sainte-Croix, to hiking in France's 'grand canyon', the Gorges du Verdon, as well as relaxing in numerous local restaurants.

Le Poirier is a perfect place to enjoy a digital detox. There is no internet access although you can get it in the village or hire a dongle if you are desperate! Why not switch off completely, clear your mind and get back to nature.

(read some digital detox facts here.)

In the local village of Bauduen, two kilometres away from Le Poirier, there are three restaurants, two shops and a weekly market on Sundays. The village has musical events most weekends in July and August, as well as tennis courts, pedalo, sailing and canoe hire facilities. Bauduen is situated on the Lac de Sainte-Croix, which has many little beaches dotted around its shoreline. The nearest town, Aups, eight kilometres away from Le Poirier, boasts a range of restaurants and two supermarkets.

If you want to go further afield, you can enjoy the glamour of the Cote d'Azur (one and a half-hours' drive), the ski slopes of the Hautes-Alpes (one and a half-hours' drive), and the lavender fields of Provence (30 mins).

Provence Villa - front of the houseGuests' comments

"Such a relaxing stay, it did us the world of good, messing about on the lake, going for long walks in the forest and sleeping loads."

"We love your gorgeous house, so well-equipped. Looking out at the lake and seeing it change colour throughout the day was mesmerising."

"We had a very relaxing time touring the area. We especially liked Tourtour, Cotignac and Sillans. We ate well at Les Terrasses du Lac at St Croix. The table tennis was a big success. All in all, a very enjoyable holiday."

Provence Villa - sunset over the lake"We had a great time, sailing, canoeing, walking in the gorge and horseriding - great to have all these activities on the door step."

"We'll be back, had a lovely holiday."

"Time stands still here and all seems at one, far from the madding crowd."

"What a wonderful, warm friendly house you have. We really felt like God in France, as the Dutch say! It's like a paradise, so quiet and peaceful. What a wonderful place. Thanks a lot and we hope to come back soon."

"We had a fantastic week and did so much. We had sailing lessons for two days, went to Barjols, Aups, Moustiers, Aiguines, Avignon, Casis, Ste. Maxime to name but a few. We ate twice at the Café du Midi which was fabulous. Just the atmosphere and level of sophistication we needed. We loved the table tennis table and even our teenage son was not bored!

I think you have clearly put a lot of thought into the house and what people need and I was very impressed with your attention to everyone¹s needs. It has been a great break and we feel stimulated and rested even though we didn't exactly sit still."

We have travel insurance to suit all people and holidays
