A&K Top Tip

Guest Testimonial

A first-class service: finding a suitable cruise to fit my parameters; managing to extend the time during which the offer would remain open so as to give me more time to discuss the trip with my travelling companion; and finally making all the train and hotel bookings to make the whole holiday as trouble free as possible. I cannot speak too highly of the way in which everything been conducted.

- BH, London

In true Provencal style, Hotel Crillon Le Brave enjoys a beautiful setting surrounded by vineyards and olive groves just 40 kilometres northeast of Avignon, at the foot of Mont Ventoux. Dating back to the 18th century, the hotel comprises eight old stone houses, many of which were once family dwellings, connected by a network of bridges, alleyways and hidden courtyards. Each of the 28 rooms and seven suites benefit from comfortable Vi-spring beds, crisp Italian linens, Bose Wave systems and complimentary Wi-Fi. Suites and Master Suites have terraces with views overlooking the vineyards, while many of the double bedrooms have stunning views over the Rhône Valley.

After filling up with a sumptuous breakfast on the terraces of La Grange, head out on a cycling trip to Bedoin on one of the hotel's Trek hybrid bikes, take a stroll through the village with one of the walking maps or try the local Ventoux wines at nearby vineyard, Domaine du Tix. Located in the old village stables, Spa des Ecuries is a peaceful and relaxing environment to enjoy a facial or body treatment with Bamford organic products. The cities of Aix-en-Provence and Marseille are 75 minutes away, and the Côte d'Azur and the city of Nice are a 3-hour drive southeast; we recommend spending three to four nights at Crillon Le Brave to ensure enough time to explore and indulge!
