This dramatically sited 16th-century property offers panoramas of the Vaucluse from a series of ancient buildings perched on the ramparts of the medieval hill town of Gordes. With vaulted passageways and arcades lined with boutiques, the cobblestone streets of the village climb to a rocky pinnacle crowned by a château. The hotel’s 40 spacious rooms, three of which offer private terraces, are decorated in a refined 18th-century style with hand-painted beamed ceilings, wood paneling and original artwork. Chef Jean-François Piège brings his braising techniques to a country house-style dining experience at Clover Gordes. Other restaurant options include L’Orangerie, which serves contemporary Mediterranean cuisine on a terrace facing the valley, and Le TIGrr for Asian-influenced fare. Other amenities include a Sisley spa, a gym, a kids’ club and a heated outdoor swimming pool.
