Domaine de la Barraque
Are you looking for an absolutely quiet and peaceful place? Do you want to be awaken by birds? Our guesthouse is located 10 min of Vinon sur Verdon, 20 minutes from Manosque and 45 minutes from Aix en Provence. It is situated on a private property of 170 ha (350 acres) on the outskirts of the Gorges du Verdon, in the middle of thyme, rosemary, olive trees and lavender-country. The property consists of 110 hectares of wild countryside, a small stream and 60 hectares of agricultural fields where we grow rye, corn or sunflowers. You are welcome to roam around and enjoy the different views. Huge old oak trees give you a great opportunity for a quiet place to read or a nice picnic. Our next door neighbors live 4 km away. The region offers a lot of fantastic hiking trails.
We would love to welcome your children when they are older than 17 years.
The guesthouse has several terraces, with different places to hide from the sun or to work on your tan. It used to be a sheep shed and it is constructed of the famous huge boulders of the Provence. We have completely gutted it and nowadays the ground floor consists of an entrance hall with two toilets, a large kitchen, a dining room and a living room (60 m2) with an open fire place, a bar and French doors leading to the terrace adjacent to the pool.
The 'infinity' saltwater pool measures 5 x 11 m, giving you an uninterrupted view of the lavender bank in front. On the other side of the pool is a nice lawn, where a hundred year old oak tree, a linden and an olive tree offer some dappled shade. The combination of 200 sunny days per year, starry, starry (cool) nights and some fantastic dinners will give you a 'joie de vivre' which will last for a long time after your holidays.
The hayloft has been converted into 2 apartments, each with a small kitchen and a separate bedroom; and in addition to these there are two double rooms. All four bathrooms have floorheating. The house is centrally heated for those cool spring and autumn days.
Even in the summertime temperatures at night drop about 10C, which allows you to have a good night sleep.
We can arrange a driver/guide by the day if you don't want to face french traffic. And we will pick you up from Marseille airport or Aix en Provence TGV station if needed.
