This is a paradise in Provence set in six acres of tranquil grounds. The farmhouse is nestled amongst the serene foothills of St Barthelemy, surrounded by sprawling hilltops and spectacular untouched nature far as the eye can see. With a private pool, and lots of wonderful places to relax among the grounds, you'll be hard pressed to tear yourself away to explore the stunning local area.
Lei Chambris is just 2km from the charming medieval villages of Villecroze and Salernes and a few km from Tourtour in the unspoilt region of Provence. Villecroze is a tiny village full of charm where time stands still. Stroll through the old walled medieval village and visit the caves in the picturesque formal gardens. Salernes is home of the terracotta tiles still manufactured here today and you can visit delightful showrooms, sample the Provençal way of life and wander round the market on Wednesdays and Sundays. Tourtour is an artists' colony known locally as 'the village in the sky'. It has truly spectacular views. There are many wonderful restaurants to choose from in the above-mentioned villages and surroundings.
There are wonderful walks to suit all levels, taking you through some of the most spectacular countryside in Provence. Maps and guides are available and cycles and mopeds are available for hire. Guided cycle tours also available. There are many activities at the stunning Gorge du Verdon including hang gliding, white water rafting, kayaking and trekking or canoeing and windsurfing can be sampled at the immense Lac de St Croix. Horse riding can be arranged at various local stables and tennis can be played at nearby Villecroze. There are many golf courses that accept visitors within a 50km radius. At Chateau de Berne, try your skills at quad biking, or for the more adventurous, there is an outdoor assault course. Wine tasting can be organised at several local chateaux. Plus, within 40 minutes are the spectacular Gorge de Verdon, the biggest canyon in Europe, and the emerald green Lac de Saint Croix. Only one hour away are the beaches and the glamour of the Cote d’Azur.
