Excursions in the region

The villages of Haute Provence are well worth exploring. Visit Vachères and, while you are there, don’t miss the Palaeontology Museum. Oppedette and Banon - where you can sample the area’s famous goat cheese - are also worth a stop. Other excursions include Lurs for its olive oil, Mane for the medieval Priory of Salagon and the Sauvan chateau, Simiane la Rotonde, and Forcalquier with its lively market - not to mention a host of other authentic towns.
You may also enjoy touring the nearby lavender plantations and distilleries.
Or, reach for the stars at the Astronomy Centre in Saint-Michel l’Observatoire.
