Good to know
Stays here don’t come cheap, but the stunning setting more than makes up for it.
19 rooms and suites.
Bedrooms are individually named after herbs from the surrounding countryside. Some have their own terrace, clawfoot bath or baronial fireplace, all have romantic wrought-iron four-posters or canopied beds, and each is tastefully decorated with Provencal antique furniture. Expect plenty of home comforts such as super fluffy towels, bathrobes and slippers, as well as LCD TVs. Other welcoming touches include fresh fruit and flowers.
Classic rooms have appealing beamed ceilings and natural stone walls, while the bigger Bastide rooms are a touch more luxurious.
Eat & Drink
Look forward to traditional provencal favourites full of sunny local flavours. Menus change according to what’s fresh and seasonal, and regular specialities include breaded prawns, local pork with herbs and the classic crème brulee with home grown lavender.
Dine either on the vine-framed terrace or in the dining room, and wash down your meal with some great Domaine de Marie wines.
Breakfast is served until 11:00.
See & Do
Go on a gastro tour of the region, making a beeline for the villages of Roussillon and Lacoste, or hire some bicycles to explore the countryside and take in views of the Luberon Natural Park. Explore nearby medieval Ménerbes – perched on a rocky outcrop with a magnificent citadel and winding streets – or trawl for antiques in Isle sur la Sorgue or Gordes. Thirsty travellers can also visit one of the many vineyards nearby.
