The Setting

Alauzon is a unique venue, both surrounded by forestry land and located within the Parc Naturel Régional des Baronnies Provençales.  This is a place where you can immerse yourself in nature.  The closest road is over 1km away, giving our secluded valley a feeling of being in a lost world. Situated at 800m altitude, we get plenty of sun, but without the blistering heat making Alauzon a great place to stay all year-around.
