Our stay at Marc's and Caroline's gite was... definitely the highlight of our tour. The surrounding is a beautiful, natural, yet unspoiled playground for mountain bikers. Their gîte is super comfortable and well equipped, the food (we opted for the full board) was all home made and delicious and the kindness of the hosts is a rare treat. Marc showed us around his garden and explained the problematic soil of the terres noires. He even helped us sawing an overly long seat post. And we had long and friendly conversations all evening. Thank you very much!read more

Siamo arrivati per caso, cercando un posto in cui... passare la notte nel nostro viaggio verso la Provenza della lavanda in fiore. Siamo stati accolti piacevolmente ed abbiamo trovato uno studiò nuovissimo e arredato con cura, ordinato e pulito. La qualità e le attenzioni ricevute ben valgono i pochi chilometri dalla strada principale. Per strada abbiamo incontrato un cerbiatto e una volpe per la gioia del nostro bimbo.read more

Our stay at the home of Caroline and Marc was a... highlight on our Chemin du Soleil. We did not only love the spacious very clean studio, the garage for the mountainbikes, the delicious dinner together with the two of them, the home made crepes for breakfast, the beautiful views and the peaceful silence but especially the spirit of the house. We miss the good conversations with open-minded very nice people who found their paradise to live their life in respect to the village and nature. A perfect place for those who like to explore the breathtaking landscape of the Terres Noires. Marc has a lot of tour ideas for hikers and bikers and knows all about the fantastic geology and the nature of the region.read more

Via Ferrata rocher de neuf heures ADT

The “parc aventure” (a treetop adventure park), the via-ferrata near Digne, the artificial lake of the Ferréols (access free), a golf course and even horseriding ….are all at less than 30 minutes drive from our “gites les terres noires”!

The train of ``des Pignes``

Taking the famous train of the Pignes for a day out? This is very easy to do with an early departure from the Digne train station. Stop and visit the village of Annot with its well-known hiking trail among the sandstones and its famous “King bedroom”. You may have your lunch there, board the train early afternoon and stop at Entrevaux, with its Vauban citadel built at 150 meters above the village. Then return to Digne on this famous train at the end of the afternoon..

Motorbiking in the mountains

Clue de Barles ADT

Have you ever driven over such charming mountainous roads?

Why not stop for a few days at our “gites les terres noires”!

We are motorbike riders and we know well all of the small and sinuous roads in the area very well. They are absolutely delightful. It is worth taking the time to do a full day loop, starting by the Corobin pass ,then through Barrême, Plan de Chaude, Thorame to reach the pass of Allos, Barcelonnette and end the loop by the clue of Barles before coming back to our “gites les terresnoires”.  It is incredibly fun and we have many other circuits to offer you!
