Very special boutique B&B near Gap, Provence and the Ecrins National Park

ID: 551
I fell in love with this very special boutique bed and breakfast near Gap (26kms) and Sisteron (50kms) in Provence, not far from the village of Veynes in the Hautes Alpes department of France. What a special experience.

It is a truly magical place set in 7 hectares of peaceful parkland where you will find an orchard, beehives, a pond, meandering paths, a tennis court..... you can't help but relax here.

Pull up a chair on the terrasse next to the old pigeonnier and read a good book, or snuggle into a comfy chair in front of the beautiful old fireplace in the great hall in which a log fire will burn in cooler months.

However, if you are seeking a more active stay near the Ecrins National Park, this is a great base for some quality mountain biking, road biking or walking. Facilities are available for bike storage, mechanical tinkerings and bike washing and Thierry can direct you towards and maybe even accompany you on some quality circuits in the countryside here, West of Gap.

The restoration of this former priory is an ongoing project for your gentle, warm hosts who fell in love with the place 20 years ago. The guest wing with its independent entrance has now been beautifully and sympathetically restored and includes the delightful, original 17th century kitchen where the monks used to cook their simple fayre.

It is in this room that you will take breakfast (the home made jams and home-produced honey are just delicious!) or make use of the fridge and microwave to prepare simple meals. There is also a dishwasher and washing machine available should you need them.

Don't expect 4 star hotel facilities and over the top luxury here. No, the priory is about classic French style, beautiful restored wooden floors, top quality fabrics, super comfortable bedding and modern bathrooms with powerful showers. The guest rooms all look out onto unspoilt countryside from which you can watch the setting sun.

Your stay here will be made all the more special by your truly wonderful hosts who are discreet but on hand should you need them. Lastly, you will meet Tin-Tin, the owners gorgeous little dog (thank goodness not a 'barky' dog!) who enjoys welcoming guests just as much as the owners.
