What we like about this property

Warm, chic and inviting, this charming B&B has a modern zen vibe that we love and stunning views. Restored with tasteful contemporary style and character, it puts a designer spin on the simple Provencal life.

Description

Perched on top of a craggy canyon above a cute little village in Provence, Metafort bed and breakfast is a beautifully restored 17th century home that features a unique take on style and contemporary French culture. With sweeping views across the Nesque Valley to Mont Ventoux, it’s designed with relaxing escape in mind.

The second of two hotels in the area restored by French couple Isa and Philippe Lichtenthurn, the house features just five intimate and simple rooms. Each of the rooms feature indulgent and private jacuzzi tubs and amazing views with a very special sous les etoiles at the very top of the house where the bed slides out to a private terrace under the stars. Awash in natural light, soft pastels and neutrals, the house has been given a thoroughly modern update with a few remaining rustic touches. 

Spare and bright with vintage and contemporary furnishings and decor, the effect is subtle but impactful and includes pops of bold color courtesy of Isa’s personal paintings. The large eat-in kitchen and dining area seats six where you’ll gather to enjoy breakfast together and the option of whipping up your own meals.

The stunning infinity pool juts out over the canyon with views of Mont Ventoux where you can lounge in peace surrounded by gardens and the vast valley below. Warm service, cool style and off the beaten track Provence make this special place a great escape.  

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Complimentary breakfast included with optional Saturday dinners on request. Wifi throughout with a guest computer, TV and DVD player with DVD library, and MP3 audio systems in each room. Optional massage and spa services available upon request. Mountain bikes available for guest use. Off street parking.

    A beautiful happy place!
    My husband and I just returned from a week staying at this lovely B and B. We chose this place to celebrate my birthday and our 1st wedding anniversary. We also treated the trip like a babymoon seeing as our little one is due on October. I can honestly say that it broke my heart to leave. Isa and Phillippe are such lovely, kind and genuine hosts. They’re so attentive and helpful and really strike a balance between this and giving you your privacy and freedom. The sweet breakfast dishes Isa made were absolutely delicious and the view from the cliff side pool never failed to take my breath away each morning. The poolside and gardens are filled with wildflower borders and the house itself is a combination of sophisticated trendy interiors and authentic old charm. Isa decorates the walls with her magnificent art and carefully place flea market finds. We stayed in the cheapest room and found it very comfortable. The real treat being the double jacuzzi bath that played music and lit up! The only one constructive criticism I would make is that I think they should have coffee making facilities in the room. I physically can’t get out of bed without one (this night just be me) and found myself slightly grumpy going downstairs to get my morning dose. I will consider myself a very lucky if I ever get the chance to return to this paradise.

    Wow!!!

    We loved it. Everything was perfect except we need to return because we want to stay in some of the other rooms that we didn’t get to visit this time. Isa and Philippe (the owners) were wonderful. They were so friendly and informative. The cliff side pool is gorgeous. We will definitely return again in the future, this is a unique property!!

    We stayed here for 2 nights in September. We hired a car and this was part of our tour of Southern France.

    Metafort just had to be on our list of places to stay once we saw the photos on the internet. But could it live up to the expectations? The answer is yes.

    We were warmly greeted upon arrival and shown to our room (Diamantina). Then we had a tour of the property. It is homely and stunning. We were made to feel relaxed and comfortable.

    The location is basically at the top of “town”. The building is unique with a wonderful outlook over a gorge. The views from around the property are wonderful and it is easy to just sit and enjoy the surrounds. But that is hard because there are so many things close by to visit and explore. The weather was particularly nice at that time of year.

    Philippe was out of town at the time but Isa still had the time to look after all our needs and more. No request was too big or too small. Isa took the time to show us on maps where to go and explore.

    We had a dinner outside one night with local produce collected during the day and ate while the sun set over the valley. What a fantastic memory.

    Breakfast was plentiful and lovely.

    Quite a unique property in a great area with lovely hosts.

    Thank you Isa for a wonderful stay!

    Dramatic location and really wonderful people
    Isa and Philippe run a great spot here. The cliffside location is stunning. The pool is gorgeous. Add to that, there is a wonderful communal atmosphere with people hanging out and having a drink together or chatting about life.
    Recommend it very highly.

    Very nice stay, very friendly people!
    Philippe and Isa are wonderful hosts: very friendly & welcoming, they provide you with the best addresses for dinner and are there also to advice regarding activities. Also, the interior design is perfect, just like the organic/fresh breakfast!
