THE STORY: The ideal Provençal stone farmhouse? This former eighteenth-century oil mill that the Beaumier group (Les Roches Rouges in Saint-Raphaël, Capelongue in Bonnieux…) bought and transformed into an ultra-cozy twenty-five-bedroom hotel. Styled by the director of the hotel, Delphine Rouvière, and the architecture firm Jaune, the bedrooms feature sisal flooring, whitewashed walls, bathrooms with tommette tile floors and terra cotta details. Looking for more? Check out the stunning terrace dotted with olive trees, where innovative chef Julien Serry (ex-Sur Mer in Paris and Chardon in Arles) serves whatever bistronomic goodness he’s cooking up at the attached restaurant, after going for a dip in the pool shared with the Hôtel Le Galinier, located a stone’s throw away. Rooms starting at €185 a night.
TOILETRIES: A Diptyque kit with body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion.
BREAKFAST: €15, with tea, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit salad, viennoiseries, fromage blanc and homemade granola.
LITTLE LUXURY: Getting into downward-facing dog during one of the yoga classes on Wednesdays, with cicadas chirping away in the background.
