Apd04rev3 – Quiet and authenticity for this shed in the middle of fields


IMG_0656 apd04rev3enBetween the Revest-Des-Brousses and St Michel – the Observatory

A house built on the ruins of an old barn in the middle of fields, from the time they were covered with pasture, ideal to be closer to nature. In the quiet of the Haute-Provence, and its agriculture on a human scale. Here we live to the rhythm of the Earth and the Sun, with small plots of land cultivated earlier in Sage, sometimes in Lavender.

The night the stars seem closest, brightest, reason for which the village of St Michel welcomes several astronomical observatories open to the public in the summer.

3000 m 2 garden with many fruit trees which are put at your disposal with the House offer a setting to enjoy your holiday in the countryside. The comfortable house is designed to take advantage of the outside and the hot sun of Provence, with a large shady terrace equipped with a summer kitchen and a pizza oven in front of the House, and the roof terrace a solarium with sunbeds. Access to two rooms on the second floor can be done by the terrace or a scale milling in the living room. It is also possible to enjoy this House in all seasons thanks to the fireplace that heats up quickly. Many mushrooms in the region are opportunities through the forests of Oaks.

But the Haute-Provence it isn’t that nature, many villages perched dominate the heights as the sentinels who watch over the region. Small cobbled streets who walk between the houses to you lead to points high, castles or churches. The squares of the villages welcome all year local farmers markets, that you discover the flavours of the South and fruit picked at maturity.
