Water plays a key part in the history of this beautiful nineteenth-century villa built over the Font Vineuse spring, famed since ancient times for its mineral water rich in magnesium that aids the digestion. The building was based on a spa hotel and was used for bottling the mineral water and for mineral water treatments for over a century. Gérard, who took over the property and its surrounding park, which features several beautiful sequoias and cedars, has comprehensively remodelled the house to convert it into a B&B on the theme of water and wellbeing. The large, bottle-shaped swimming pool overlooks the garden below through large windows. Higher up is the original fountain where guests can drink the mineral water in a huge room hung with old photos which recall the building’s history, next to the snooker room, massage room and B&B. Upstairs are the huge, sumptuous guest suites, each with a jacuzzi, bathroom and office area. Some also have terraces. They have all been restored to offer delightful décor and every modern comfort. In the evenings, set-menu meals are served in the large lounge-cum-dining room, with its bar and wood-burning stove, which is linked to the very modern kitchen. This B&B offers guaranteed peace and quiet and a chance to relax and recharge your batteries in the mountainous Haute Provence region, with many opportunities for hiking, rafting and parascending in summer and ski-ing and snowshoeing in winter.
