My partner and I visited Jas de Boeuf for a long weekend and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The new owners Dana and Jerome - incredibly attentive and hospitable hosts - seem to have injected a fresh breath of air into the property.
The rooms are light and cosy, with a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen available to guests. There is a natural pool with great views of the countryside (towels and deck chairs provided). The accommodation also had the benefit of being situated away from the main road (much less noise), which appears to be a problem with some of the other B&Bs in the area.
Recommended for anyone looking for some peace and tranquility.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled on the southern slopes of the Montagne du Lure under the clear blue skies of Haute Provence northeast of Aix-en-Provence, Le Jas du Boeuf offers luxurious accommodation in a magical location with magnificent views. Calm is guaranteed by hundreds of acres of forests and fields scented with wild herbs and lavender, yet great little restaurants are just down the road. There are no neighbours within view or hearing distance and all rooms have their own private entrance directly from the gardens. You can choose between stone walls in the beautifully restored 18th century sheep barn or modern poolside bungalows that pull the outside in. Read in one of the many shady corners of the grounds or hike up the mountain and enjoy the views of the Alps before taking a dip in the heated, infinity pool, which is salt and chemical free thanks to the latest UV cleaning technology ... more less
