Located just north of Aix-en-Provence, this exceptional honey-colored stone villa is set on a 600-acre wine estate. Public areas comprise a reception pavilion with a restaurant serving seasonally inspired organic fare, a library and a bar, as well as a spa with seven treatment rooms, an onsen (traditional Japanese bath), a fitness center, a hammam and an outdoor pool. The 28 freestanding suites line a private cobbled lane shaded by bamboo and scented with jasmine and feature a sleek and contemporary décor, with modern art and traditional Provençal design accents, including wrought-iron framed doors, walnut étagères and curtained four-poster beds. Some accommodations also include private pools. Three additional dining options, including a restaurant by acclaimed chef Francis Mallmann and Tadao Ando for Provençal cuisine, are located at the Château La Coste, an organic vineyard and contemporary art park a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
