Auberge du Bachelard The spectacular Col de la Cayolle is a sightseeing dream for car drivers and motorcyclists alike. After a 30-year closure, Auberge du Bachelard has opened its doors again at long last thanks to Chef Jérémy Vella and his wife.

When the fine weather comes around, the kitchen garden offers up plentiful fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables.  Barcelonnette and Pra Loup aren’t far down the road, but gourmets can also opt for one of the auberge’s six rooms or top floor suite, cradled by the sound of the bubbling Bachelard stream…
