ACTIVITIES AT THE DOMAINE
Relax and sit by the pool to catch a few rays, relax in the shady pool-house playing board-games or ping-pong, or for the more active, explore the many miles of local hiking and biking trails which lead straight from the front door. You will find a range of different sized bikes ready for your use.
Take a 1/2 hour stroll up the hill to the monastery where you can fill up your water bottle from the fresh St Joseph Spring and spend a contemplative moment in the beautiful hilltop chapel. Walk or bike through the hills to different local villages such as Correns, Mont Fort and Pontèves, where a well-deserved drink or provencal lunch awaits you.
Alternatively, while away the warmer hours of the day in one of the hammocks hidden in the the shady corners of our four-hectare garden. Children will also be delighted to find the large sunken trampoline behind the summer kitchen .
For those who with a penchant for wild-swimming, take a plunge in the cool blue pools below the dramatic waterfalls of Sillans la Cascade, which are 10 minutes away. Or, drive a further 25 minutes and you will reach the azure blue waters of Lac St Croix and the impressive western end of the Gorges du Verdon.
The village of Cotignac has a very active tennis club which you can join for a minimal fee for the duration of your stay and play as much as you like.
