Condo/Apartment
In Forcalquier, our hometown in Provence, we have a beautifully restored apartment for holiday rental. It is located in one of the nicest streets in the old town; rue Saint Mary – a charming, cobblestoned street, and leading up to a hilltop park. One of the unique aspects of the location is the fact that rue Saint-Mary is a “cul-de-sac” and extremely quiet with no traffic noise. However, the main square with its lovely cafes and restaurants is just around the corner. It is certainly convenient to be able to wander down in the evening, have a lovely meal with a bottle of wine and not have to worry about who is driving! The apartment has one bedroom with a separate kitchen, lounge/dining and bathroom. It was completely renovated in 2005 with all modern conveniences and has been decorated ...In Forcalquier, our hometown in Provence, we have a beautifully restored apartment for holiday rental.

The apartment has one bedroom with a separate kitchen, lounge/dining and bathroom. It was completely renovated in 2005 with all modern conveniences and has been decorated in the Provencal style. The apartment has Satellite TV, a DVD player and a music system. The apartment has a delightful vine clad terrace with lovely views of our garden and the citadel hilltop park. On top of the hill, overlooking the old town is a 19th century chapel set in a wooded cemetery, marking the site of the former citadel. In the past, Forcalquier was a favourite residence of the counts of Provence and an internationally renowned cultural, political and economic centre. Today, Forcalquier hosts one of the liveliest and most colourful markets in the region. Here you will find all the produce of the season: lavender, honey stalls and artists selling their wares. Wander through the restored old town with its narrow streets, basking in the middle of rolling luxuriant scenery and discover the many interesting nearby sites like the Verdon Gorge or the picturesque villages in the famous Luberon Valley. Enjoy delicious provincial cuisine from a variety of excellent local restaurants. It is also possible to arrange art, language and cooking classes during your stay with us in Forcalquier - please ask for further details.More

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty of free parking approximately 200 metres from the apartments but it is possible to drive to the apartments to unload luggage. They are situated in a charming stone house which stands in a quiet cobble stoned street and leads to the Citadel where a 13th century castle once stood. Today the Notre Dame de Provence Chapel stands in its place and commands a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside. The Citadel, as the hill is passionately known by the locals, is a real 'green oases in the centre of town and a beautiful spot for an early morning or evening stroll. Forcalquier has a population of 4,500 and from the Apartments it is a 5 minute walk to the centre of town. Here you can buy everything you need for your stay in Forcalquier. There are 4 bakers, 2 butchers, an ex...
