Property description

La Cascade takes its name from the small mill stream that tumbles down, right opposite the front door. It's part of an 18th century water-powered olive mill, Le Moulin de la Montre (spot the remains of the old sundial), and a small bridge leads to your private patio with wild fig and vines. You're only 10 min walk under the plane trees from the unspoilt village with its Wednesday and Saturday markets, bakeries, cafes and numerous exceptional restaurants. With 2 double bedrooms, a traditional kitchen, bathroom, separate WC and lounge (with an extra double sofa-bed), La Cascade enjoys a panoramic view over Aups towards the mountain ranges of Provence to the south. With many local festivals, a wide range of activities and delightful hill villages nearby it is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful, turquoise Lac St Croix (20 min by car) and the spectacular Gorge du Verdon (30 min). Parking at the Moulin for 2 or 4 wheels. Our normal change-over day is Saturday but there can sometimes be flexibility, so do ask.
Winter attractions include wild-boar and small game hunting and the renowned truffle market (every Thursday from end of Nov to early March) with the Fete des Truffes on the last Sunday in January.
