Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

Locals are Bas Alpins or Bas Alpines. A third of all properties are secondary homes and the overall population density is amongst the lowest in France. The department is divided into 3 areas of Haute Provence (a third of the area but two-thirds of the population), Lower Alps of valleys and really remote villages, and High Alps with skiing.

 In broad terms a mountain climate brings fresh dry winters and very hot summers with thunderstorms. Infrequent but heavy rain. Think drama !

Key towns:

  • Digne-les-Bains
  • Sisteron
  • Peipin
  • Manosque

Fact file
Land area:  just under 7,000 square kilometres
