An out of the ordinary BnB in the Alps
La Maison du Guil is a truly atypical bed and breakfast in the French Hautes Alpes. A priory dating back to the 16th century, the house has been entirely renovated and is situated in the heart of the hamlet of la Font d’Eygliers, looking down on the valley of the Guil and the Durance rivers, a small distance north of the lake of Serre-Ponçon, in a quiet and calm setting, yet very close to the town of Guillestre, at the entrance of the Parc du Queyras. Adjacent to the fortified village of Mont Dauphin, our house offers you a mixture of old materials with contemporary elements, comfort and charm. 4 spacious BnB rooms and 2 comfortable self catering appartments or holiday homes.
A boutique BnB ...
In the preserved nature of the Guillestrois, at the crossing of the natural parks of the Ecrins and the Queyras, you can discover authentic villages, valleys, mountain rivers and lakes, start off for short or longer hikes in stunning landscapes … and leave again with a refill of energy.
At the end of autumn, there's still plenty of autumn colours to be seen, and we're still enjoying the agreable temperatures of our indian summer. The first snow has arrived on the summits, sign that winter will be arriving shortly. Then we'll be able to enjoy the beauty of the snow covered landscapes again, go alpine skiing in Vars or Risoul, or in the smaller family friendly ski resorts in the Queyras, go snowshoe hiking in the Queyras or in the Ecrins, or go cross country skiing. At the end of an exciting day in our mountains, why not enjoy the luxury feeling of a sauna, or book a massage in your room?
At the end of an exciting day in the mountains, return to the calm and peacefullness of our hamlet, enjoy an aperitif on the terrace followed by dinner in table d'hôtes style, in our vaulted ceiling dining room. An evening when we don't serve dinner, we'll be glad to advize you some nice restaurants in the area.
