Seyne has a twice weekly market throughout the year selling excellent fresh produce, local cheeses, charcuterie and fish. A paradise for gourmets. It has a medical centre and a chemist. 2.5 hours from Marseille airport and AIX TGV. 2.5 hours from Grenoble airport (only operational in winter).
Charmabel has a 9x3m polytunnel which produces lettuces, beans peas, leeks etc but with proper gardening skills could certainly do even more. The house comes with over 30cubic metres of logs, split and stacked, the forest on the property means that the household is self sufficient for firewood.
Charmabel is a wooden chalet in the Swiss style, clad inside and out with seasoned Landes pine panelling and wooden functioning shutters to every window. A traditional wooden balcony runs along the front of the chalet reached by symmetrical stone stairways at each side. Doors off the balcony lead into the kitchen, the first floor lounge and the hall though the main front door. The first floor lounge, the kitchen, one of the bathrooms and the toilets have been painted by the current owners using Farrow and Ball paints in soft whites. The rest of the house has retained the original wood. The floors are parquet or tiled throughout. All window and door panes are new and double glazed.

Charmabel offers flexible and comfortable accommodation for a large family group looking for peace and privacy in genuinely unspoilt mountain countryside. As currently furnished Charmabel can sleep fourteen.
Originally built as a mountain retreat for a Marseille family Charmabel is easy to close up and leave with peace of mind. All the windows and doors can be securely shuttered and barred and the water system completely and easily drained to avoid frozen pipes. The area has a very low crime rate.
The current owners have lived here for 16 very happy years and leave with regret for family reasons.
