Description for B&B:They found an old garage on the banks of the river Jaur, loveliest and least-known of the rivers of the deep south of France, with heart-warming views across the water to the old village, classified as one of France's most beautiful, with its ancient houses, medieval bell-tower and le Pont du Diable, the Devil's Bridge. They found close by an old coaching hostel, rich in memories of generations of previous family owners. The Abrahamssons, people blessed with vision, they saw how these premises could be made into somewhere very special. It quickly became a family venture, closely involving not only Joan and Anders but their sons Aslak and Kasper, and Kasper's wife Fe.
As you sip your apéritif on the terrace in the shade of the mulberry trees or honeysuckle pergolas, you may notice a wooden hatch among the flagstones: it's the old vehicle inspection pit. As you're served your amuse-bouche (titbits served while your entrée is being prepared) with the home-produced bread for which Fleurs d'Olargues is famous, you may notice a steel girder set high in a pillar: in former times a block and tackle was slung from it. This has been a triumphant conversion, a vindication of courage, creative imagination and good taste.
