Villa overview - owner's description

Comfortable and spacious Villa in peaceful, picturesque village 5 mins from major roads and close to the towns of Sisteron and Gap. Fantastic area for outdoor types and also for a relaxing holiday.

Au milieu des vergers de pommiers et des champs de tournesols, Ventavon est un joli village fortifié autour de son église du XIIème et de son château du XVème dans les Hautes Alpes. La route Napoléon vous mènera vers cette villa de 1992 construite sur un terrain clos, aménagé et arboré de 1 500 m². Sur deux niveaux plein Sud sans le moindre vis-à-vis, elle a été parfaitement aménagée et entretenue : entrée sur porche couvert, hall d'entrée avec placard vestiaire et WC d'invités, séjour volume cathédrale ouvert sur la terrasse avec cheminée, cuisine ouverte équipée, une chambre parentale avec sa salle de bain. Au 1er étage, trois chambres dont deux avec placard, une salle d'eau et un WC. Les prestations sont de qualités : garage deux voitures avec grenier atelier et portes motorisées, piscine 7 par 3,5 m couverte et chauffée, portail et portillon télécommandé, 120 m² de terrasses, chauffage au sol sur les deux niveaux, cheminée foyer fermé avec distributeur de chaleur, adoucisseur, pergola, puits, aspersion sur le terrain et tout à l'égout ! Ce site privilégié est unique, la seule limite d'exploitation sera votre imagination : recevoir vos amis et votre famille en toute indépendance... Bienvenue, vous êtes ici chez vous ! Atouts : vous êtes à 3 minutes du village et 30 minutes de Gap et Sisteron !

The Villa is spacious and full of charcter yet is very comfortable and fully modernised. The location is very peaceful and quiet with superb scenery but the nearby towns of Laragne, Gap and Sisteron are all easily accessible (10mins, 30mins and 20mins respectively).

Discounts available for small groups or couples. Please contact us about ferry discounts.

Friends from Swadlincote, United Kingdom Aug 2013

We were a group of four climbers, all friends no couples. This beautiful house was perfect for us - central to all the climbing we were looking for - Orpierre, Sisteron and Ceuse, we even went a little further afield for some of the days. It has a fabulous sun trap of a terrace out the front and we spent most of our evenings out there enjoying the late sun. The local shops are easy to find, and we ate very cheaply out of the supermarket which was on our way to the climbing every day, with good cooking facilities in the house. A lovely house, we hope to stay again!

A relaxing holiday. The house is as described. Owners had been present recently and kindly left some basic supplies for us. We took bicycles hoping to cycle to the local bar and boulongerie but were not very fit hills defeated us. We would consider returning in future.
