- Impossibly good French cuisine courtesy of a Michelin-starred chef
- Ridiculously lazy afternoons spent relaxing by the lovely outdoor pool
What To Know
- If you're looking for a spot to relax, head to one of the hotel's several lounges, or the bar which has a fireplace
- The hotel kitchen sources produces from its own organic garden
- Indoor and outdoor terraces have fantastic views of Luberon
For those easily seduced by lavender-scented Provence, this brand new property in the heart of Gordes wows with a 15-seater cinema, magnificent orchards, vegetable gardens, dip-worthy outdoor pool, and beautifully-decorated indoor and outdoor lounges. Most standout, though, is the sublime setting overlooking the Luberon – the 4,121-foot-high massif that’s a patchwork of hilltop villages, ancient abbeys, and must-visit vineyards.
There are just 16 rooms at this chic little hideaway, all of which wow with contrasting colour hues (Hermes red, pastel lavender, golden yellow, flamboyant orange, sea blue), Baroque-inspired fixtures and fittings, and lavish soft furnishings made with rich satins, silks and velvets. Nice touches include complimentary organic toiletries, bathrobes and slippers, and heavenly beds dressed with organic cotton sheets and three pillows per person.
Relaxed days can be spent visiting the fabulous Abbey of Sénanque that’s home to Cistercian monks, photographing some of Provence’s fabled lavender fields, and taking a day-trip to the culturally-rich city of Avignon to marvel at the Palais des Papes that sits squarely at the heart of the old town. Alternatively, stay put to chill out in the splendid terrace gardens and feast on gourmet cuisine courtesy of a Michelin-starred chef.
How to Get There
spa and wellness center, quiet and away from the city center, great cooking even at the snack of the pool, personnel very pleasant and attentive, with a kitch pink and violet room with a beautiful landscape
Cannot recommend this hotel enough! We had a beautiful room with a balcony. The hotel itself has a boutique but very high class feel. The pool is beautiful and open all day and most of the night. There is poolside service. The breakfast, although not included, is great. Overlook the entire countryside with a delicious cappuccino and soft boiled egg. They even had gluten free options. This was my favorite place we stayed during our two week trip to France.
Great, views, rooms, pool, spa, service and food - just excellent all way round. For sure we will be back again. Cannot recomend this enough, best hotel experience on our 3 weeks holiday driving around europe.
