Nestled on a hillside with dominant views over the village of Baudinard-sur-Verdon and its surrounding valley, this beautiful converted 17th-century pigeonnier is the perfect secluded bolthole for those wishing to get away from it all.
The property is situated at the gates of the Verdon Natural Regional Park, in the area referred to as La Provence Verte, where nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will be delighted by the stunning Verdon Gorge river canyon with its sparkling turquoise waters and the Lac de Sainte-Croix’s lakeside beaches and water sports.
History abounds in the numerous Provençal villages which form the Provence Verte area. For example, Correns dates back to the 12th century and the age of the Knights Templar, while the medieval villages of Carcès and Cotignac are less than an hour away, standing proudly under the Massif du Besillon and surrounded by vineyards.
A visit to any one of these charming villages will provide you with the opportunity to procure a bottle or two of the region’s renowned wines. Correns has been officially named as one of the first ‘bio villages’ in France – the majority of its wines and produce are produced organically. Sample a glass or pick up a bottle to enjoy on your very own terrace…
This property’s creative use of space makes the most of both its 50sqm of accommodation and the region’s seductive light – the double bedroom on the top floor has large bay windows, while cleverly designed compact circular units have been installed in the fully equipped kitchen.
This unique, fully restored pigeonnier would make an ideal holiday home and possesses excellent rental potential – if you would be at all inclined to share such a lovely property, we have it on good authority that it could be rented out from June to September for approximately €6,000.
