Châteaufort

Alpes de Haute Provence Departement - Population : 28 inh.

puce From Sisteron take the D951 and then the D4 for 1 km.

Chateaufort, church The road leading to Chateaufort is tiny, and so is the village!
Perched in a tranquil spot among wooded hills, Chateaufort has a beautiful church built from yellow stone that overlooks the village, and just fifteen or so houses below, half of which are uninhabited and more or less in ruins.
Chateaufort, pigeon loft
If you like complete tranquillity you'll love the pure air and the streets invaded by weeds, the big fountain dated 1885 under a venerable lime tree, one or two well renovated farms, and of course the remains of a fortified castle, an old stone tower that has now been converted into a private residence.
When you visit, nothing will disturb the calm apart from the soothing gurgling of the fountain and the noisy singing of the cicadas.
Chateaufort, house
Why not buy one of those old barns to restore?
