A note from Le Vieil Aiglun
Updated 18/04/20


MEDIEVAL HAMLET IN PROVENCE, SLEEPS UP TO 18 PERSONS. "Le Vieil Aiglun" is an ancient village dating back to the 16th century. It enjoys a remarkable position with stunning panoramic views onto Provence, the Alps and the Verdon area. The only buildings of the abandoned village which were still fit for habitation were converted into charming "gîtes" (self catering houses) of great comfort (3 and 4 stars). The three houses can be rented together (18 persons) or separately (one house for 8 and two houses for 5). "Le Vieil Aiglun" is located between Provence and the Alps, in a very quiet location, yet not far from a small town that provides all shops and restaurants. A large swimming pool (13 x 6 sqm) is at the disposal of our guests, as well as a large garden with beautiful views onto the fields and the ancient roman church. The garden offers lots of chairs, armchairs and hammocks. The place is ideal for a large family or a group of friends who want to meet up for a relaxing holiday.

We arrived at a rainy day and the surrounding had a touch of mystic atmosphere. The little church and the peaks of the mountains wrapped in clouds…phantastic moments. The house we stayed in, Gîte du Levant, is a dream of a cottage. Kids room with gallery and lovely arranged beds Superior parents room with breathtaking look over the hills and mountains. The whole property including the pool was in very good condition. We will love to come back to this little piece of heaven… Thank you very much Annick and Charles

Paradise may not be achievable on earth, but this place enables you to get right alongside it. Charles and Annick Speth have restored the four restorable houses in a long-deserted Provencal hilltop village, overlooked by the still operating 16th century church. One house they live in themselves, the others they rent out. We were 8 plus a baby in the Gite de Midi, billeted in four gracious and spacious double bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. I am not sure where to start in singing the praises of the Gite and its environs - and indeed the incredibly helpful owners. The huge views to the high Alps to the East are every bit as astounding as in the picture above. Nearer at hand, on all sides, rolling hills offering wonderful walks up hills, through forests, down gorges (and you don't have to go as far as the tourist-choked Verdon gorge) and through the alleyways of ancient hilltop villages. Given the nine hairpin bends on the steep lane leading to the village, it is tempting to while away days doing little, swimming in a pool with a vista reminiscent of the terazza d'infinita at Ravello, reading in hammocks slung between pines in the extensive grounds, playing on the boule pitch, enjoying a traffic-free silence filled only with birdsong and a night sky such as one rarely sees, so remote is this corner of Provence. I hope you get the message.

I was surprised about the wonderful location, the great view over the hills and mountains, the buildings, the pool, the nice rooms. The atmoshere was relaxing and I will come back definately. You can see and feel how much love and care it might have demanded to create such an environment out of old buildings somewhere in the nature of the provence. Congratulations on your engagement for your visitors in the past and present. I really appreciated my stay at "Le Vieil Aiglun".

We stayed in Gite Levant for a fortnight in September: we loved the property, location, and surrounding area. We four friends from Scotland met at the Gite and spent the next fortnight exploring the surrounding hills and towns and villages, Andy Goldsworthy art, playing petanque each evening (with or without one of the owners dog or cat monitoring us!), and swimming in THE pool with a view. Cooking facilities were excellent allowing many a convivial evening of food and wine. A pizza van with on board woodfired oven comes to the bottom of the hill on a Tuesday (at the local market): great pizzas! The property was clean and tidy upon arrival with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It was our first time in the Haute Provence and won't be our last: we loved exploring the area and enjoying the peace and tranquility of the gite in the evenings/at night. The twisty road up to the gites is worth the effort although it does take some getting used to! Ferdinand, dog, and Cousson, cat, are gentle companions should you welcome their company. Charles and Annick are discrete but helpful hosts. There if you need them but they keep their distance should you require privacy: thanks for the amazing pears by the way! Local markets are a must as are, if you are used to hillwalking, the hikes in the locality: Cousson, Esclangon, and the Gorges de Trevans were highlights: sturdy footwear required. Charles is ever helpful with tips and maps (and even as a guide) should you require.
