About Lynn Calame
We love the Hautes Alpes area in Northern Provence which is relatively undiscovered. We originally owned La Musardiere as our holiday home but in 2017 we decided to relocate to France and we now live 15 mins away from La Musardiere in a small village called Serres. Aspres sur Buech is very accessible by road, rail and air so, prior to moving to France, whether we had a 2 week holiday or just a long weekend we were able to make the most of our beautiful home. Leaving London in the morning, you can be having lunch on the veranda in the sunshine by early afternoon. We hope you love the area as much as we do. The scenery is stunning and there are so many activities for a fabulous holiday - hiking, cycling, canoeing, hang-gliding...or just relaxing by the heated pool and enjoying a game of garden chess or table tennis. As we live locally, we are available to assist with any queries.
Lynn Calame purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Lynn Calame chose Aspres-sur-Buech
La Musardiere offers so much flexibility: whether you want to totally stop and relax or have a more active holiday. There are many beautiful picnic spots along the River Buech, great to cool down on a hot summers day. The villa is close to the village and yet very quiet. Enjoy spending time having meals on the secluded sunny terraces around the villa. There are a selection of tables, chairs, sun loungers, hammocks and well positioned wooden benches to soak up the sun in the morning, afternoon and evening or to shelter from the heat. The heated pool is 9m x 4m with security cover when not in use. Inside the villa there is a variety of entertainment: 47" TV with English and French reception, Bluetooth sound bar, Wii, PS3, wifi, board games and a variety of books. Enough to keep everyone entertained no matter their age.
What makes this Villa unique
The Hautes Alpes area in Northern Provence is simply stunning. We completely fell in love with the area when we visited and subsequently bought our holiday home - being relatively undiscovered it is not commercialized and you can experience "real France". The weather is fabulous whichever season and there are so many activities to keep us busy that there is something to suit every type of weather ...even when it's too hot! The villa is located in the mountains at 800m so benefits from slightly cooler summers than the coast (still mid 30s!). It is a stunning region with a reported 300 days of sunshine a year. Whilst a car is recommended, there are superb facilities in the local village within walking distance (baker, butcher, post office, supermarket) and the villa has excellent access from train and air and full internet access (WIFI is included in the price). We love this area so much that in 2017 we relocated here from the UK.
