Nestled on the southern slopes of the Montagne du Lure under the clear blue skies of Provence near Forcalquier, Le Jas du Boeuf offers a little luxury in a magical location with great 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 four rooms have their own private entrances directly from the gardens.
You can choose between old stone walls in the beautifully restored sheep barn dating from 1718 or modern poolside bungalows that pull the outside in. Borrow a book from the library and read in one of the many shady corners of the grounds, hike up the mountain or just stroll along a path and enjoy the views and fresh air before taking a dip in the heated infinity pool, which is salt and chemical free thanks to the latest UV cleaning technology.
Thick stone walls, poured cement floors, good insulation, and cool evening breezes keep all of our rooms cool in the summer. Our Wifi system works in both of the rooms in the Jas and in various hot spots outside. Most guests connect over breakfast and our guest laptop is usually available. You can also prepare light meals and keep a few beverages cool in the summer kitchen overlooking the pool.
We like to think of the Jas as a deconstructed boutique hotel, without the front desk. All of our rooms have modern ensuite bathrooms, their own private entrances from the gardens, Nespresso machines, 100% cotton sheets, and Lothantique soaps.
Our rooms were renovated in 2015 and now have larger beds and duvets, reading lights, and more comfortable furniture. Original contemporary art, modern and vintage design elements are featured throughout the property.
The two bungalows (Chênes and Garrigue) that overlook the pool and its magnificent views, as well as the large room in the Jas (Gaubert) with its own terrace overlooking the west garden, all have 160 cm wide beds and the smaller room in the Jas (Berger) has a 140 cm wide bed. Both of the rooms in the Jas have Wifi access.
There is also a summer kitchen overlooking the pool where you can keep a few beverages cool and make light meals.
