Advocates of sustainable farming, Lise Kvan (ex-Astrance and Holybelly 5 in Paris) and Eric Montéléon (ex-Relais de la Poste in Magescq) took over this 18th-century inn back in 2019. Their motto? Organic and local ingredients for dishes that never overdo it. So come savor the latter in a sleek space (white walls, white tablecloths, Japanese paper lanterns by Céline Wright) or on the tiny terrace with incredible views of the Luberon. The night we went, the €35 chef’s menu included: some lovely Roussillon escargot doused in a garlic butter sauce with tarragon and an ultra-light potato espuma – or a good salt cod, chickpea and tapenade salad; grilled duck breast with coco de Paimpol beans and a jus de viande; before a graceful basil pudding paired with a moist rosemary madeleine. At lunch? Expect classic bistro fare: beetroot, trout roe and horseradish; guinea fowl with peas and a mustard and tarragon sauce; cream puff with caramelized apples… One final option? Breakfast is available to more than just the guests who spend the night – come for waffles, granola, fresh fruit and homemade juice… // G.LeP.

FEELING THIRSTY? Around 15 clean wines sourced from the area: a Grenache from Sylla in Apt (€6 a glass), a red blend from Les Maoù in Gordes (€25 a bottle), a white from Henri Milan in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (€45)…

PRICE: À la carte €19-34 (lunch), set menu €35 (dinner). Breakfast €6-8.
