Overlooking the Nesque Gorge, Métafort enjoys superb views of the mountains. It is an imposing stone building located in the montain village of Méthamis. It has been comprehensively restored by Isa and Philippe and converted into a charming B&B. The third-floor bedroom is called “Under the Stars” and its bed can be slid out onto the terrace. The ‘’Cocoon’’ bedroom on the second floor is flooded with daylight: its five windows offer superb views over the mountains and the village. The other bedrooms on the same floor are cosy and are called ‘’Lili’’ and ‘’Opaline’’. They are decorated in pretty shades of mauve and beige. On the ground floor, the ‘’Diamantina’’ suite and “Le Flat’’ offer more privacy. The kitchenette allows guests staying in “Le Flat” to self-cater. The bedrooms are furnished and decorated with taste, including salvaged metal furniture picked up here and there, linen sheets and curtains and unusual light fittings. Brightly coloured paintings by Isa hang on the walls. Each bedroom and suite has a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi, some of the bathrooms are in the bedroom, others are separate. In the basement, guests have access to a huge lounge-cum-dining room which overlooks the garden and the swimming pool carved out of the rock. Breakfast is served in this room, as well as the evening meals, available on Saturdays only. Her menus are inventive and are prepared with fresh local produce, much of which is organic. A top-of-the-range address in an exceptional setting.
