We couldn't book so just drove around and found it! A very friendly welcome. Relaxed in the garden with a glass of wine and at 20:00 dinner was served. An excellent homely meal with fresh ingredients from the garden. The madame did the cooking, her husband served us and made sure we had everything we wanted. Breakfast was good, but... More

Whether you want to explore in details the stunning Digne countryside (small villages nested in green valleys surrounded by impressive rock cliffs and heights with 360° views towards the Verdon, the Durance and the Alps peaks) or just look for a stopping place on the Route Napoleon, Villa Gaia is the place to stay in Digne (a little outside, where...

If you are looking for TV, fancy and modern furnitures and air condition don't choose Villa Gaia. But if you want a unique experience of a France from the early to mid 20 century, with food made to perfection the old way and with a couple running the establishment that genuinly care about giving you a royal treatment, then you...

We dropped on the Villa Gaia as we were searching for a nights stopover on our way to Italy and after a hard days driving it was just the place to be. Although it was raining when we arrived we were greeted by the owner with an umbrella and assistance to get our bags to our room which was roomy... More

This a charming, old hotel in tranquil surroundings, 5 minutes drive outside of Digne les Bains. We arrived as walk-ins for 1 night, with no prior reservation. Stumbled upon it thanks to Tripadvisor while on a road trip south, down the Route Napoleon. The hotel was not officially open for the season yet (1 day too soon) but as we... More

Traveling between Provence and the Savoie, we spent one night at Villa Gaia in late September. Initial impression was good: old villa, lovely grounds, peaceful setting, an old-world pension of yesteryear. The 'good feeling' stopped there. Inside, our corner room on the second floor was dark and filled with dated, out-sized furniture. Neither AC nor fan. I don't think there... More

In a small park, the villa is just so traditonel french and beautiful. The old atmosphere is contained, with original furniture and a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere in the house, but with new and modern bathrooms. This is the french countryside villa one dreams of; simple and tranquil, where you van open the windows to the little park, where you... More

We chose this hotel because it was rated by Guide Michelin as particularly quiet. It's a family hotel just outside Digne, in a small park off the road to Nice. They were quite friendly and laid-back . Our room was rather small and dark (one window). No tv, no a/c, no fan It can be pretty hot in Digne in... More
