Maison d'Amont - Sunshine Mountains and Lake!

The Maison d'Amont
1 of 13The Maison d'Amont
Condo/Apartment -
4 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 8
St Vincent les Forts, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Ideal for family break, or a group of friends, the Maison d'Amont is surrounded by fields and has a fabulous open view over mountains and the Serre Ponçon lake. There are no near neighbours, and endless space for kids to run around and let off steam.

You can hike straight from the house into the majestic larch forests behind. The area is a hotspot for outdoor activities, there is a world reknowned paragliding site just down the road, white water sports on the Ubaye river, boating and swimming in the lake, and you can take a chairlift up the mountain to hike or mountain bike. There are forts, churches and museums to visit, and plenty of music festivals and village fêtes if you want to party in the evening.

You'll have absolute peace and quiet at the house - our visitors are always amazed at how well they sleep! 1/2 a mile away...

About the neighbourhood
Visit Barcelonnette, a lively mountain town which has historical links to Mexico. They have a great jazz festival in July, and museums, forts and churches to explore. Or head up the valley over one of the high mountain passes and walk to a high altitude lake taking in fantastic views and alpine flowers.

Closer to the house try a paragliding tandem flight from the panoramic village of St Vincent les Forts, laze by the lake or go fishing or boating. You could visit one of the many goat's cheese farms, or taste local lavendar honey. Browse the markets in Seyne, St Jean Montclar or Barcelonnette for fabulous local peaches and apricots, and the best lamb in France!
