An ancestral and typical house in the heart of Provence

We offer our house as part of an exchange for people who would eventually like to acquire our property. Finding a second home is not always easy: you have to take the time to get to know it, to live there, to appreciate all its aspects and perhaps fall in love with it. It is in this spirit that I continue our adventure with Intervac rather than a real estate agency.
This house is located at Oraison near Marseille and the Côte d'Azur in the south of France.
Our house on three levels, is a place filled with the history of my ancestors and has kept in this little corner of Provence, its authenticity and its sweetness of life.
A dive into the Provençal atmosphere, with the inevitable break, under the trees of the square at noon next to the ancient bandstand, to drink pastis: the pleasure of going from a peaceful, timeless house to the southern atmosphere of the heart of the village in 3 minutes on foot.
But as soon as you enter the house, it's another world of calm that breathes the history of Provence.
In the surroundings a guinguette at the edge of a small lake where you can swim, picnic, go pedalo. Outdoor swimming pool in the center of the village and overlooking the Durance valley. The library has moved into the cool rooms of the castle.
We are at the gates of the Luberon and near the spectacular Gorges du Verdon with the large lake of Sainte Croix and the wilder Esparron, with turquoise waters and where fishing and nautical activities are practiced.
Various centers of interest such as the Astronomy Center at St Michel de l'Observatoire near Forcalquier; paragliding on site, golf nearby with many services, various hiking trails and beautiful bike rides from Oraison; tennis.
You will discover the DOUCET confectionery factory in the village. In Manosque, 10 minutes by car, you will dive into a world of scents and well-being in the L'OCCITANE factory outlet. Banon has a goat cheese eco-museum and one of the largest bookstores in France, yes yes! it cannot be invented. with its thousands of works.
And if, by chance, you risk driving an hour on the motorway, Marseille, the Bonne Mère (Virgin of the Guard), its Old Port, and its superb creeks will transport you to a new story and in the settings of Marcel Pagnol.
