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 overseen by chef Frederic Andres, 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 are located at the Château La Coste, an organic vineyard and contemporary art park a two-minute drive or 10-minute walk from the hotel. The château offers a restaurant by acclaimed chef Francis Mallmann. Additionally, Tadao Ando serves Provençal cuisine, and the casual La Terrasse utilizes ingredients from the property’s garden and pairs them with housemade charcuterie and local cheeses.
