A tiny hilltop village, stunning countryside and a whole lot of Provencal charm are what make Hotel Crillon le Brave the perfect rural retreat. This traditional 38 bedroom boutique hotel is steeped in history with its beautiful buildings dating back to the 16th century, adding to the romantic atmosphere. The search for a tranquil hideaway overlooking rugged mountains and surrounded by endless vineyards and olive groves is finally over.
Situated in the heart of Provence you’ll be able to savour the peace and quiet but still be just a 40 minute drive from the medieval town of Avignon. Travel by train and you’ll be transported from urban cityscapes to lush landscapes or enjoy an aerial view from the plane as you fly into Avignon or Marseille Provence Airport. The area is paradise for cyclists as you can follow the Tour de France route up to Mont Ventoux or if you’re more of a wine connoisseur then a trip to the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a must.
Decorated with chic Provencal style furnishings and boasting spectacular views across the verdant countryside, each of the bright and spacious rooms at Hotel Crillon le Brave are just what you need to relax and escape from the world. Or if you want something even more special, a suite complete with your very own terrace is the answer.
Why we like it
The way to our heart is through our stomachs and with two fantastic restaurants on offer Crillon le Brave won us over. Supporting the local community is another winning feature and Bistrot 40k – so named because all the dishes are made with products from within a 40 kilometre radius does just this. Delicious food, breath-taking views and a romantic atmosphere, this hotel ticks all the boxes.
