Beautiful area for Mountain Biking/Walking

5 of 5
We stayed here for a week's Mountain Biking, we hired a car from Nice Airport as we travelled with our own bikes. The cottage is well equipped with all you require. Spacious and clean, good shower and a fantastic outside patio in a lovely setting. Francoise was helpful and showed us all the facilities and gave us good information - especially the recommendation of great Pizza from the local Boulangerie on a Friday/Saturday night. In the cottage was a map with the Mountain Bike Trails of the Valley of Jabron (also available from the Tourist Office in Sisteron) We rode the red routes which were about 20km. The climbs were usually on good tracks and not too steep, although pushing up was required on a couple! Some great technical descents on good single track - they are waymarked but in some places needs updating as they have faded in the Sun or missing! The area is beautiful and views stunning, topped off with 25c wall to wall sunshine in October! We would recommend this as a destination to come for mountain biking and hope to return one day.
