Bed & Breakfast

Inspirational views, infinity pool, incredible calm, gorgeous grounds for relaxing; minimalist design with maximum comfort


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


In unspoilt Provence, among forests, vineyards and lavender, with the Alps to the east, the Luberon to the west, the handsome contemporary renovation of the big 18th-century farmhouse suited Jérôme (ex-Parisian) and Dana (he’s Canadian) to a T. They hung their modern art collection, laid their lovely carpets and use their bakery-bistro experience to create delicious breakfasts. Choose plain luxury in the old jas or a breathtakingly modern lodge that pulls the outside in (all with their own private entrance). Myriad sports, delightful villages, gardens and markets call you; then chill out by the heated infinity pool or, in the colder months, a roaring indoor fire. Exquisitely minimalist, wonderfully remote, really welcoming.

Died and gone to heaven comes to mind! Stunning location with wonderfully kept, terraced gardens full of typically Provencal, calming herbs, buzzing with insects under the blazing sun. Too good for a stop-over en route to somewhere else - this is a destination stay! Fabulous hosts, interesting and charming, make this a delightful place to relax, explore the area of rolling hills and 'perched' villages, each day kicked off with a sumptuous and original breakfast lovingly prepared by Dana with fruit from the garden and local produce. The infinity pool, with perfect views , tops it all off!

We've been back for just over a week and we still can't get over how memorable this place is. Calm, quiet, and the perfect spot to get away from it all.

We just spent a wonderful long weekend in Le Jas-du-Boeuf enjoying magnificent autumn weather. The nights were already a little chilly but we kept nicely warm in the cosy japanese-style bungalow 'Chênes'. Jerome and Dana proved attentive hosts, serving us delicious breakfasts every morning. Our lady dog enjoyed the company of their quiet brothers Castor + Pollux - all was perfect! Nature lovers like ourselves who appreciate creature comforts as well as design and style will love this place!


Staying here was like staying in heaven! Dana and Jerome were amazing hosts and did everything possible to make our stay special. We had one of the rooms by the pool which was ideal for us and our dog, and the views were amazing. We will definitely be going back!


Jerome and Dana were the most welcoming and lovely hosts who really did everything they could to make our stay as wonderful as possible. Their gorgeous dogs Castor and Pollux loved our Sheila too! Amazing pool, gorgeous room, delicious supper on the terrace outside in the evening where wine and laughter flowed freely. Would recommend to anyone - do stay more than one night though to really explore the place and surroundings.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jérôme Mantel & Dana Silk

  • Although the Lure Mountain is almost as high as the Ventoux there are not hundreds of cyclists grinding their way to the top. Halfway up you can check out Notre-Dame de Lure, a mystical 12th century chapel.
  • Banon is a beautiful perched village that boasts one of the largest independent bookstores in France as well as an excellent restaurant - La Table de Panturle.
  • The gentle flank of the Lure up behind our house, riddled with trails sometimes marked by shreds of wool from errant sheep, is home to lots of birds but not much else, making it ideal for relaxing walks. Straight up it becomes mountain bike heaven.
  • Lurs was once an abandoned village overlooking the Durance valley, not far from the still active monastery of Ganagobie. Perfect for a stroll and afternoon tea.
  • Forcalquier has the largest outdoor market (Monday mornings) in the region as well as great little shops and restaurants.
  • There are several factory outlet stores at the entrance to the autoroute, notably Lothantique for soaps and cosmetics, Manon for chocolates and sweets, as well as an award-winning olive oil producer - Arizzi - just across the Durance.
