Chambre de la Place                                                                                Chambre de la Sirène

Two bright, freshly renovated studio-apartments with a view on the hills of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. The village square with the café is right in front of the house. The morning sun will warm you pleasantly and the light comes in from the south.
These vacation apartments are located in the middle of Sigonce, a typical village of the Provence. They can be rented for longer or shorter stays. You can write a book here or find the peace that you need to completely relax.

A stay in Sigonce


The house with the apartments on the first floor                                Helena on the bench in front of the house

The Swiss musician and book author Helena Rüegg settled down in this area that is unvisited by tourism. Helena travels a lot as an internationally acclaimed bandoneon-player. Therefore, she looked for a quiet place where she could regenerate her energies between one trip and the other. She found this 300-year old house in the heart of Sigonce, just facing the town hall and the café. Sigonce is located 70 kilometers to the north-east of Aix-en-Provence and 100 kilometers from Marseille.
It is an imposing building with stone walls that are almost a meter thick. The ground floor will become a cultural center with occasional expositions, readings and concerts. The first floor has been transformed into two comfortable studio-apartments by the company Allroundbau A. Celentano, from Freudenwil (Switzerland) with much taste. The work has been executed carefully, with many nice details, according to the Swiss respect for quality.

Both apartments are suited for two people. On 33 square meters, they offer everything that is needed: a complete kitchen, a good double bed and a brand new bathroom with shower and WC. For a longer stay, there are the beautiful, antique wooden cabinets. Both kitchens have an oven, a fridge and a sufficient supply of pans, cutlery, plates and dishes.
We have a good Wifi-connection to the Internet. There are many extras that can be used, such as a landline and a washing machine in the basement. You can also put away your bike there. The house has a lot of charm. There are many deep alcoves in the freshly whitened walls. The ceilings are high and display the original beams. The windows are large and have double glass. In the "Chambre de la Sirène", there is even an open fire.
