Not far from Digne-les-Bains, Pierre Gassendi was born in 1592. He was the son of a farmer who, thanks to his intelligence, pulled himself away from the land to reach the sky. This is hardly a metaphorical statement, as after studying theology, he became initiated in astronomy and corresponded with Galileo. Later, his work would leave a mark on astronomy, particularly his studies related to the transit of Mercury. In memory of his celestial observations made from Provence several centuries ago, and because the conditions for observing the sky here are exceptional, thanks to the great clarity of the air and the near-total absence of urban lights, the idea for the lodging “Près des étoiles” was born. You will surely be amazed by the stars overhead that you have never seen in such great numbers.
Reaching the gates of heaven is quite hard… from the courtyard you will take the central staircase of the castle with its stone steps carved by the passage of time and people, up to the 3rd floor. It is up there, under the castle’s roof, that this 35m2 flat for two people will surprise you. It is a luminous cocoon where you will stay a little closer to the stars.
You will love the cosy and warm atmosphere, with its small open and colorful kitchen that overlooks, as an appreciated privilege, a roof terrace. You’ll appreciate this space just for you, equipped with a barbecue, a table for your meals, two deckchairs to rest from your explorations and enjoy the panoramic view in the calm of the surroundings.
Inside, passing under the beam, you will enter a spacious room nicely decorated in shades of ocher and red with its double bed and, oh surprise, a whirlpool bathtub. How about taking a bath while contemplating the starry sky ? This is where the magic resides, as it is located just under the roof window, a well of light by day, a vault of stars by night. For your comfort, a bathroom is also attached to this room.
And why not take a little walk outside and go down to the courtyard of the “castle”, this large Provençal farmhouse but nevertheless a noble residence…
