Lou Marcelou is a traditional provencal stone building perched on the hillside with  magnificent views over Lac St Croix and the hills beyond


The original building dates back to pre-Napoleonic times and is full of character and charm with exposed stone walls and original wooden beams.


The building has been split into 2 apartments each offering accommodation for 2/4 people in open plan living areas. The apartments each have their own entrances and  outside parking and can be rented individually or together if required.

Apartment One

Apartment Two

Sleeps 2/4.

32m/sq + 19m/sq Terrace, Sleeps 2/4

Apartment two is in the old stables where animals were kept from Napoleonic times until quite recently.


Parking is on the road directly outside the apartment and access is via the stone steps onto a wonderful large terrace (19m/sq) from which there are fabulous views over the lake to the mountains beyond

Patio doors open into an open plan living room with a well equiped kitchen on one side and large sofa on the other (which converts into a large double bed).






The interior of apartment two is slightly smaller than the upper apartment  but it benefits from having the large terrace outside.
