Ground floor accommodation includes large (60+ sq m) comfortable living / dining room with log fire, dining table (accommodates 8 comfortably), radio / CD player with iPod connector, some French and UK TV channels, DVD, well equipped kitchen, 1 twin-bedded room, luxury bathroom, separate WC. First floor includes one double bedroom, one additional twin-bedded room, shower room with WC.

Moissac-Bellevue, in the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon, is surrounded by vineyards, woodland and open countryside, just 15 minutes drive to the stunning Gorges du Verdon and Lac Ste Croix.
Free WiFi:
This is an ideal location for those wanting to experience the food, wine, charm and bustle of Provençal village life, while being only 15 minutes from the spectacular Gorges du Verdon and the activities offered in and around the 11 kilometre-long Lac Ste Croix. You will find numerous beaches and secluded coves for swimming and sunbathing, as well as places (in the summer season) to hire pedalloes, kayaks, canoes and electric boats to take you into the gorge itself.

Formidable!

You might also like to try white-water rafting (out of season), sailing, climbing or paragliding in and around the lake / gorge area. Alternatively, we are surrounded by great walking and cycling country to suit most abilities, and horse-riding is available nearby too.

All around are vineyards and lavender fields......and the Med is only an hour away!

Extremely spacious, detached family house, tastefully furnished to a high standard, with enclosed child-safe garden and set in a beautiful hilltop village. We are a short drive away to the stunning Gorges du Verdon and Lac Ste Croix with its many beaches and water sport activities. The house has a large terrace, great for al fresco eating and relaxing in the dappled shade. There are lots of sunny spots in the garden, with sun loungers available plus shade for those who want it. The ground floor living space includes large (60+ sq m) comfortable living/dining area with log fire for winter visitors. The property includes a fully equipped kitchen so you can dine in and a BBQ is available for your enjoyment. We take great pride in our house, love every moment we spend there and are sure you will as well, because it is our home and not just a holiday let. There are plenty of books, DVDs, music and free WiFi for you, should you need to stay connected.

Just a short walk away is Le Bellevue restaurant and bar run by Melanie and Thierry, a delightful couple offering simple, inexpensive dishes - and terrific value. A fine hotel serving gourmet food is also in walking distance.

All in all, MaisonBurns is a perfect base for exploring the spectacular Gorges du Verdon - an absolute must to visit, plus the Lac - and an ideal location for those wanting to experience the food, wine, charm and bustle of Provençal village life.

Moissac-Bellevue is a beautiful hilltop village close to the Gorge – France’s ‘Grand Canyon - and the Lac Ste Croix. It is within the Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon, and is surrounded by magnificent countryside with fabulous views across open land to the east, south and west.

Close by are the villages of Régusse (4km), and Aups (6km) having a thriving market on Wednesdays and Saturdays (and a truffle market in winter), numerous bars, restaurants, banks, shops and supermarkets.

Other delightful small towns and villages a short drive away include Tourtour – the ‘village in the sky’ -and Aiguines (pottery) close to the northern access to the Gorge. Ste Croix is a lovely village on the other side of the lake near the ‘Barrage’ leading towards Quinson - more stunning canyon scenery. From here the Verdon river flows to Esparron where you can take an hour long excursion by boat (in season) around that lake – glorious!. Close to Ste Croix, extensive lavender fields stretch to Moustier Ste Marie from Valensole.

Don't miss Cotignac (lunch beneath the plane trees), Sillans la Cascade (waterfalls), Salernes (cycle hire), Villecroze (grottoes) and Baudinard (stunning sunsets).

On arrival, our local agent will arrange to meet you, show you round the house and hand over the keys on payment of a security deposit, refundable after satisfactory inspection on your departure. She will ensure the house is clean for your arrival and visitors will be expected to leave it tidy and clear of rubbish, ready for her to clean on your departure. Any additional cleaning, babysitting, shopping etc can be arranged directly with her.
