In Forcalquier, our hometown in Provence, we have 4 apartments for holiday rental. They are all located in one of the nicest streets in the old town, rue Saint Mary – a charming, cobblestoned street, 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 apartments have either one or two bedrooms with separate kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Two of the apartments can be connected into a three/four bedroom house - perfect for a large family or a group of friends. They have modern conveniences and have been decorated in the Provencal style. One of the apartments has a delightful terrace with lovely views of our garden and 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. Forcalquier is almost in the heart of Provence and all major points of interest can be easily visited in a day. Travelling time to nearby cities - Nice 2½ hours, Aix-en- Provence 1 hour, Avignon, Marseille and French Alps 1½ hours. We also have a very comfortable 1 bedroom studio apartment in Provence’s former capital, Aix-en-Provence. This charming cosmopolitan town is today a thriving international student centre with some of France’s best restaurants and bars. The studio is situated in a very quiet location, only 15 minutes on foot from the centre of town.
