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

Mountain Biking

We are in the center of mountain biking country. Many well -known trails, such as the mythical “raid des terres noires“, the “Chemin du Soleil” linking Grenoble and Nice, the crossing ” l’Alpes Provence“, pass through our home “les terres noires”.

Whether you would like to train yourself in the challenges of the “terres noires” or just enjoy yourself in our playground from our “cosy” accommodation or just stop for a night, we will welcome you in our Bed & Breakfast ( Studio “les terres noires” for 2 to 3 persons and Bed&Breakfast La Pommeraie & L’Emporte for 2 to 4 persons).

You will be able to relax  in a reclining chair and enjoy the colours of the setting sun on the “Cheval blanc” mountain.

We will host you at our diner table (with prepared local and fresh produce). You will then be able to admire the starry night’s sky while knowing that your bike will be safely parked in our bike shelter.

We have prepared documents for you listing the routes in “les terres noires” from our lodging. We can define a course adapted (with GPX tracks) to your desires and your level.

The ``Chemins du Soleil``

These routes are made up of over 1400 km of trails, crossing the Alps from Leman lake (Geneva) to Mediterranean Sea (Nice). We are located on the Sisteron-Nice portion which you can complete in one week, between the Dourbes and the Cine’ mountain pass in the “Terres noires”.

Alpes-Provence descentes terres noires

The ``Alpes Provence`` trail

You may mountain-bike across the  “Alpes de Haute Provence ” from East to West on marked trails ( around 240km) . This journey willtake you around one week to complete. We are located between La Javie and Digne les Bains.
