Where is it?


The house is located about a kilometre from the quiet and peaceful village of Mezel, yet is only twenty minutes from the larger city of Digne-les-Bains. It has easy access to all amenities, including many local markets for bargain hunting, and many restaurants for eating out.

The immediate area is a haven for wildlife, being situated in the protected environmental zone of Haute Provence. The air is among the cleanest in Europe and is renowned for its invigorating qualities. Indeed, you will often see the re-introduced Griffon Vultures soaring the thermals over the local mountains.

You will find the "European Grand Canyon" at the Gorge du Verdon which is about 40 km to the south. The Gorge is over 700 metres deep in places and is the widest and deepest in Europe providing numerous spectacular challenges for the walking enthusiast and those who are not afraid of getting really wet doing a wide range of white water activities through such evocative sections of the Gorge as "Niagara", "Tourniquet" and "Cyclope".

The Verdon river runs through the Gorge and into the Lac de Ste. Croix with its many beautiful beaches and numerous ancient towns surrounding its perimetre. If you fancy a trip to the beach, you could head for the Med., which is about two hours away. But why would you? The Lac sports numerous sandy beaches that lead into beautiful clear Alpine waters for swimming, sailing or whatever..
