How to Get There
This hotel is really a Gem, the rooms are wonderful, the location (surrounded by vineyards and olive trees) the service, everything was amazing, they start by showing you around the village to know where the pools and different restaurants are. We also tried the spa which was worth it. I really recommend going there
The Luberon park is a wonderful setting for any hotel but the Coquillade Village is something very special, with its magnificent views and stone-built, tiled-roof cottages giving the place great charm and ambiance. I have now stayed here twice and seen a variety of bedrooms and facilities.
The hotel is best appreciated in the summer months and there are many outdoor activities available. However, the two substantial outdoor pools (uniformly 1.55 and 1.22 metres deep) are heated and relatively warm even early and late in the season. The gardens and landscaping with flowers and mature trees are very pleasing. The hotel has an indoor pool with extensive spa including dry and wet saunas, cold and warm dip pools, a cool mist and ice room, and two outdoor Jacuzzis overlooking the vineyards. There is a private spa available at additional cost, and I would really recommend this for special occasions. The room contains a jacuzzi, wet and dry saunas, a bed, a shower and massage tables. Massage is available with advance booking and the quality is very good indeed. Gilles is reputed to have the ”best hands in France” but during our visit, was only available on Saturdays.
The internal hotel environment is very welcoming with an excellent terrace which is used for drinks during the day and Gourmet restaurant dining during summer. You can expect very fine dining in the Gourmet and the chef, Thierry Enderlin, shows a mastery of the senses that is difficult to find in many other fine-dining restaurants. There are also Bistro and an Italian restaurant, but we did not dine there. Breakfast is from 7.30-10.30 am in the Bistro restaurant and offers a buffet-style selection of cooked and uncooked foods. The selection is not extensive but, in my opinion, the quality is very good.
The bedrooms are very variable ranging from a “chamber de charme” to a suite with sauna and balcony. The style is also variable from modern to rustic, so you need to be pretty specific about your preferences when booking. Personally I prefer the bedrooms with rustic charm and a good view, but the modern style bedrooms are also very tasteful. Many things are provided in the room, such as robes, additional towels, a coffee maker, TVs a fridge and even an umbrella. However this is the kind of place which does not have an iron and board in room. The TV provides games, internet access and music/movies, but there is no dedicated music player.
The service was generally excellent, especially in the spa. The concierge, Sam, is a character and very good at welcoming guests and remembering who is who and what language they speak. The reception staff were polite and friendly but the only slight disappointment was the rather proud and formal behavior of the Gourmet restaurant staff. We did not feel particularly welcome or special which was a shame given that the food was excellent.
Finally, I come to value for money. This is difficult to evaluate given that there are many hidden costs in running such a hotel, for example the spa and heated pools. Every other than the basic package costs extra so that has to be factored into the value for money. I would say the suites are overpriced but the basic bedrooms are probably reasonable value. I would come back to this hotel but only for special occasions.
We found this place absolutely lovely. I cannot believe some of the poor reviews. The service is a tad slow, but you are in Provence for heaven's sake, not NYC! It is casually elegant and just a beautiful, restful spot!
We stayed here for one night in August as part of a week long holiday in Provence. The hotel is truly beautiful and our room was immaculate and clean. We arrived fairly early in the morning and we felt like more of an inconvenience as the lady on reception seemed very hurried and not overly friendly. We had lunch at the Italian restaurant at the pool which was lovely and my children enjoyed playing in the pool. We decided to eat at the gourmet restaurant in the evening. I hadn’t realised there was a bistro as we were not given any information when we checked in. My children are quite fussy eaters but I was assured when I booked at reception that they could be accommodated. However, upon arriving at the restaurant we were told that the children had to have a mini tasting menu which wasn’t what I had been told earlier. Needless to say they barely ate anything and the menu wasn’t cheap! I enjoyed my meal but my husband wasn’t overly keen on his starter. Breakfast the next day was nice but expensive. Overall we enjoyed our stay but if come back to the area I would probably try a different hotel.
Words cannot explain the experience. The hospitality, beauty and culture deliver on the 5 stars. We loved the spa and pool. The restaurant choices are fantastic. We loved renting the bikes and exploring the area. We can’t wait to return.
