What do you know about Sainte Tulle and environs?

Hi there,
I'm asking for some advice for a friend who is looking for a reasonable, clean place to stay in a small town in France in March. Here are the details as I know them:

Her daughter will be staying in a town called Sainte Tulle at a sports complex called Centre Regan. My friend, her husband and their teenage son would like to stay nearby, either in Sainte Tulle (which is about 62 km from Aix en Provence) or a nearby town such as Manosque or Greoux les Bains. I don't know any of these towns but I'd like them to stay in someplace interesting and/or charming.

They'll likely visit Paris for three or four days before heading to the Sainte Tulle area and then spend five or six days there.

One of the things my friend would like to know is whether there's a train from Paris to Sainte Tulle (or nearby). Would they be better off to rent a car and drive?

Regarding accommodations in or near Sainte Tulle, they'd consider a hotel, apartment or guest house. They're not looking for a 5-star hotel but would like something pleasant, clean and comfortable for the three of them (the daughter will be at the sports complex).

I'd appreciate any help or advice on her behalf.
Thanks
gtg

There are not that many options in Sainte Tulle itself, but there are some nearby including the Hôtel Le Pré Saint Michel, Hôtel des Alpes and Les Hauts De Greoux that they may find fits their needs.

Thanks, Robert. I'll pass that along. Do you know anything about train service to that area?

From the official Sainte-Tulle website:

En T.G.V., liaison Paris-Valence puis Grenoble-Gap ou correspondances en autocar vers la Vallée de la Blanche-Vallée du Bès, la Vallée de l'Ubaye, le Val d'Allos, les Vallées de Durance et Bléone.
En T.G.V., liaison Paris-Avignon avec correspondances en autocar vers le Pays de Forcalquier, Digne-les-Bains et le Val d'Allos.

Au départ de Marseille :

En TER, plusieurs liaisons journalières jusqu'à Sisteron avec correspondances en autocar vers toutes les vallées.

Au départ de Nice :

Le "Train des Pignes", chemin de fer de Provence, train touristique, relie tous les jours Nice à Digne-les-Bains, via le Pays d’Annot-Entrevaux, la Vallée du Haut-Verdon, la Vallée de l’Asse.


So, lots of options, all involving a train, then bus.
