the premises

Our isolated hamlet, which includes just two families, is situated on a south-facing slope surrounded by fields and meadows, vegetable and flower gardens, forests, and wilderness.

A genuine haven of peace that will charm all those in search of rest, tranquility and inspiration.

Our guesthouse, contiguous to our home, has an independant, private entry and is offered as “bed & breakfast” , half-board or complete pension.

The accommodation includes three bedrooms each with two single beds, an alcove, a monestary cell, a living room, a glassed veranda, a kitchenette, and separated toilet, shower and washbasin quarters.

The alcove and monestary cell areas double as supplementary sleeping quarters. Additional lodging, if need be, can be found in the neighboring village of Cordéac.

 

environment

“The Gachets” is situated at 800 meters in the rolling hills of the Trièves, at the foot of the imposing Obiou mountain.

The closest village is Cordéac, at 6 km, while Mens, with its shops and bar-restaurants, is a 20-minutes drive.

Horseback-riding, hiking, mountain biking and cycling are among the many activities possible in the Trièves, where tourism and unspoiled nature seem perfectly compatible.

Between the Dévoluy and Vercors ranges – from the high mountain pasture of the Chatel to the alpinists’ Mont Aiguille – are a multitude of attractions including, just nearby, an enchanting old trail that meanders a stone-paved brook, the mysterious “Gillardes” springs with its lakes and waterfalls, small farms and villages, the European ecology center “Terre Vivante” …

 

table d’hôtes

The vegetable garden is very close, Italy not far.

The sour-dough bread, the pasta, the marmelades and jellies, the sorbets are all home-made as well.

Our kitchen is based on organic foods. The menus are principally vegetarian and yet… some will appreciate the lamb raised in the neighboring village or other produce from local farmers. Our guests – and the season – will orient the choice and preparation of our meals.

Half or full-board available upon request. Picnic lunches prepared on demand. Guests are also free to take their meals outside the gite.

 

barn

Upstairs from the appartment, and at your private disposition, a magnificent 70 m2 atelier with wood flooring, stone walls and high-ceiling.

The atelier windows, which face east and north, give a splendid view of the Beaumont hills and the Parc des Ecrins.

Perfect for taï-chï, yoga, dance, song, music, workshops, seminars.

« The cherry trees in bloom take their inspiration from the silence and the snow. »

 

data sheet

We restored the farm with sober and timeless materials: wood, stone, iron, natural pigments. The paints, coatings and tadelakt are all limestone-based, the flooring is natural stone.

The rooms are heated by wood-pellet stoves, the hot water by the sun.
