NUMBER OF ROOMS: 4 rooms
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round
THE STORY: After bumming around Paris for a while, Laure (a former sales manager) and Thierry (co-founder of the Brasserie de la Goutte d’Or) let their homesickness get the best of them. So where did they end up? A medieval village at the foot of the Vercors massif, where the couple took over a former magnanery– a silk farming site. After many long months of renovations, this superb four-story building welcomes travelers and neighbors in a space with a country home feel, a vegetarian coffee shop on the ground floor and four spacious bedrooms upstairs mixing vintage furniture, organic materials (stone, wood, linen, wicker) and locally made pieces. Double rooms starting at €85 a night.
TOILETRIES: Florame body wash and shampoo.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: Included, with coffee from the nearby Kaffa Roastery, Torü teas, fruit juices, homemade granola, yogurts, viennoiseries, sweets from the coffee shop (banana bread, chocolate-beetroot cake, etc.) and homemade fruit salad. There are savory options upon request as well.
MINI-BAR: No, but there’s a welcome kit with homemade cookies and wild plant infusions. Otherwise, there’s a selection of natural wines and craft beers, which you can sip in the café or take up to your room.
LITTLE LUXURY: The fourth-floor bedroom with its private terrace and sweeping views of the Crest rooftops and the Trois Becs massif.
