I found this little piece of paradise about 5 years ago as a retirement house. Now, after a complete renovation into separate apartments I am delighted to be able to share its charms with others.
Rose Robson purchased this apartment in 2005
I bought the Ancienne Maison because of its charm and location, central but in a quiet location in the village.
The Ancienne Maison des Gardes has a 500 year old history reflected in the well worn steps trodden through centuries by the local guards. The charming internal courtyard is protected from the Mistral wind and offers a peaceful relaxing space to enjoy barbecues, al fresco dining etc...
