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

Hiking

Join us and discover mountain hikes starting from our lodges.

We have recorded over 20 treks lasting between 2 and 6 hours. These hikes will allow you to enjoy the magnificent surroundings of the “terres noires” ,  discover their charm, meet wild sheep and chamois around the bend, admire the sight of a vulture or an eagle, and roam through the geological reserve of the “Geoparc of Haute Provence”, created by Unesco in 2000.

We will adapt the hikes according to the season, your hiking ability and your desires.

Example of one of our hikes

Path towards Belon's farm

This is a very sunny 2 hours walk which follows a small river ( a branch of the Bouinenc river). This hike is suitable for all ages with a peak at 188 meters. This walk is particularly enjoyable during the Spring, when wild flowers grow amidst lavander and thyme on the signature dry and black soil of the “terres noires”. You may encounter wild sheep and their young hiding on the other side of the stream.

At the end of the journey, you will spot an old house (Ferme du Belon) where, during the second world war, members of the Resistance hid. Today this house shelters white stone arches, a piece of art, by Andy Goldsworthy, .
