The villa; the accomodations

Perched on the rocks of the countryside of Provence in the Var La Rabasse de Gallinette offers unforgettable stays close to the Gorges du Verdon. This house is built on the hillside in a private road of twenty villas. No heavy traffic and a direct access to the village, 400meters to feet and safely. You have access to all shops within 5 minutes walk only: Bakery, butcher, pharmacy, newspaper and tobacco, mini-markets, restaurants, bars, market & tourism office. In front of the Villa, the forests and stunning scenery.

Perfectly located, the villa will offer you maximum of sunlight. Spaces and terraces of the Villa permit to enjoy it from the sunrise until late afternoon. To maintain a good neighborhood, the villa is not rented for night events and we ask to reduce noises in the evening. We recommend you stargazing and chirping of insects and small animals.

La Rabasse is the french provencal word we give to the black truffle sold on the local market from december to the end of March Aups offers the third largest French Market bringing together all these enthusiasts every Thursday. Ladies, the Provencal and singing accent will nickname you "Gallinette" during a game of balls or in the village stone street of Aups.
