Lovely dining with a tasty Chateauneuf du Pape - You're in Provence! - and that one book that awaits to be read again; beneath the covered terrace of your vacation home at Aups, you'll feel like the king of France. Your private swimming pool, with perfect water temperature due to the sun, invites you to a refreshing plunge. One minute your feet touch the warm, nature stone tiles, and the other you're immersing yourself in the water. Your villa is within walking distance of the cozy village of Aups. With its friendly inhabitants (the 'Aupsois'), its winding roads, colorful shops and excellent restaurants, the village is a delight to discover. The weekly market with numerous, fresh local products is definitely recommended. The location, in the midst of the Provence, is ideal. Not just because of the dry and mild climate which it's so famous for. But also due to the easily accessible Mediterranean beaches of Sainte Maxime at Côte d'Azur, where you'll enjoy a perfect beach day. On a daily basis you'll enjoy a gorgeous view from the terraces, over the scenic landscapes of Parc naturel regional du Verdon. This environment is great for hiking, climbing, cycling, mountain-biking, gliding, canyoning, and so on.
