Domaine de Fontenille
NUMBER OF ROOMS: 17 rooms
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Closed on January
THE STORY: A vineyard that’s the size of seven soccer fields, an 18th century farmhouse converted into a modern family home, century-old cypresses and cedar trees as your only neighbors, bedrooms under British influence (solid oak floors, beige and grey tones, big bathrooms, old-fashioned bathtubs…), a nice photography collection (Laurent Millet, Todd Hido, Anne-Lise Broyer…), perfectly reasonable prices…. This is the provincial-Parisian dream that Frédéric (the business man), and Guillaume (the gallery owner), invite you to share with them. Double rooms starting at €150 a night.
TOILETRIES: MALIN+GOETZ soap, shower gel, shampoo and body gel.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: €22 formula that varies daily with homemade cakes, fruits, cheeses and charcuteries of the day, hot drinks, croissants and homemade breads and yogurts from local producers.
MINI-BAR: Half bottle of Fontenille, hard liquors, soft drinks, Marseille peanuts and chocolates provided in all rooms, coffee machines and electric teapots in the suites.
LITTLE LUXURY: There’s plenty to bring home for your personal wine collection, as the domaine de Fontenille transitions into an organic estate.
