Following a fantastic conversion of a local landmark, Le Nesk opened in the spring 2021. Occupying a vast 18th century building overlooking swathes of lavender and wheat fields, it is a mix of a three-star hotel and a gîte with a vintage bicycle museum to boot! Ideal for solo travellers, couples, families or groups of friends!
On the hotel side
In Sault, on the southern slope of mont Ventoux, this building -once the village hospital- has been transformed into a hotel, perfect for cyclists and nature lovers.
Six modern dorm-style rooms sleeping 4-6 are available alongside individual rooms (17 rooms for 2-4 guests), all affording either views of the courtyard or the lavender fields in the valley.
From €28 to €38 / for a night in the dorm rooms
From €90 to €140 / for the single and double rooms
On the restaurant side
The catering options are just as diverse. Choose from the on-site restaurant with classic French or vegetarian dishes based on fresh local produce (think einkorn wheat from Sault, free-range pork and wines from Ventoux, and fruit and veg from a neighbouring farm), picnics to take away (book ahead), or whip up your own meals in the fully-equipped communal kitchen.
If the mood takes you, gather with the other guests on the terrace or in the bar to enjoy a refreshing detox drink or local beer.
Guests can use any of the three computers in the multimedia space to organise excursions for the next day and download GPS trails (why not from the www.provence-cycling.com website)
On the sports and leisure side
Cycling enthusiasts won’t be disappointed either with a range of facilities with them in mind including secure bike storage, Bosch charging points, bike cleaning and repair equipment, and changing room with padlock lockers.
Not to mention a jacuzzi, hammam, sauna and cryotherapy cabin to relax your weary muscles after hitting the pedals.
Don’t miss the extraordinary vintage bikes collected by Lino Lazzerini that are now housed in their own museum. The former professional cyclist has spent 60 years collecting bicycles, jerseys, caps and other cycling memorabilia with each piece telling a story, from the days of Eddy Merckx and Raymond Poulidor right up to recent years. The collection has found a natural home in Sault, one of the three starting points for the ascent of Mont Ventoux. The vintage vélo look and feel has inspired the interior décor in subtle ways which is part of the appeal of the place
