Located in the heart of a 2 hectares wooded park along the river “La Blanche”, “Le Vieux Tilleul” is a haven of peace where you will enjoy to rest and relax all year long. You will like to warm you up in the Haute-Provence sun and you will relax under some big tree shadow…

Numerous activities starting from the Vieux Tilleul

From the Vieux Tilleul, you can practice lots of activities : hiking, family walking, all year round. Just a few kilometres away swimming and water sport are waiting for you in Serre-Ponçon lake, one of the largest European artificial lake. The Hotel-Restaurant is situated in the heart of the “La Blanche valley”, near 3 ski resorts: Le Grand-Puy, Chabanon and Saint-Jean Montclar.

A legendary tree

All has been done to preserve the authenticity and the charm of the house but unfortunatly it has been impossible to keep the old lime tree alive. The old lime tree no longer exists, sadly alas but the legend still remains. Seyne inhabitants affirm that it should have been planted by the architect Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban, major figure who built the Vauban citadel of Seyne-les-Alpes.
