As well as offering the rural idyll accompanied by a cornucopia of delicacies, Provence also promises year round sunshine and amazing historic riches. And there are so many wonderful hotels, villas, B&Bs and farm stays that you're really spoilt for choice when it comes to our Gurus' recommendations for the best places to stay in Provence. For self catering options, we recommend visiting our online partner,

Peter Mayle's books about Provence have enthralled many people into wanting to see the lavender growing in fat, straight rows, and to experience the long, drowsy lunches in picturesque medieval hilltop villages or family-run vineyards for themselves. But this charmingly rural corner of the world has been enticing and inspiring people forever.

Edged by the spectacular blue of the Côte d'Azur, Provence's own shades of green and terracotta have played muse for many artists, who've been beguiled by the light, which Matisse described as 'soft and tender, despite its brilliance'. And their legacy remains, distributed through the region's excellent museums.

But before the artists there were centuries of farmers and land owners, maintaining the olive groves, dense cork-oak and pine forests and of course the vineyards.

Some Provençal vineyards were originally established by the Romans, who also founded many of the region's towns and cities. Provence's Roman legacy also includes the world's best preserved Roman Theatre in Orange, and the Pont du Gard near Nimes, the world's largest remaining Roman-built structure.

Today's Provence is a fantastic place for foodies, wine lovers, walkers, cyclists (this is the home of Mont Ventoux, the Tour de France's 'le géant de Provence'). The best places to stay in Provence are ideal for those who like to mosey around a market, take long lunches and just stroll through beautiful medieval streets and enjoy the amazing views.

Best Places to Stay in Provence

For a country escape

  • Domaine de la Baume is a picture perfect country house in the hills of Provence, surrounded by vineyards, beehives and olive groves. There are just eight Toile du Joy styled bedrooms and suites, but the restaurant and wine cellar are known through the region.
  • Le Mas de Peint is a country house retreat in the heart of the wild Carmargue. The antique filled rooms and gourmet restaurant are a beautiful contrast to the great outdoors and wild coastline.
  • If you're travelling with a family, La Maison du Paradou is perfect! It's a stunning sandstone B&B set in beautiful grounds, beside a separate cottage which sleeps six. The rooms are glorious, there's two pools and you're within walking distance of an excellent little bistro.
  • Clos du Lethe is just six kilometres from historic Uzes, but this luxurious, five bedroom farmhouse conversion feels a lot further away. The decor is bare but sophisticated, making this an adult spot.
  • The family-run Les Florêts at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail is set in the heart of the owners' own vineyards. The Gigondas wine that they produce is available in the restaurant where many of the dishes on offer complement it beautifully. Homely furnishings with a delightful terrace for eating outside and excellent French service.

The perfect Provençal town break

  • The Hotel Crillon le Brave in Crillon le Brave is a smart hotel with fine dining in a really pretty hilltop village. A luxurious break for those who like a stunning view.
  • The Château de Massillan is a beautifully renovated small chateau with turret bedrooms and elegant interiors. It's surrounded by parklands, has a lovely lake, and an excellent restaurant.
  • Hostellerie Berard et Spa is a lovely hilltop hotel with an excellent spa, great wine cellar and a Michelin starred restaurant. And all in a charming village with beautiful views over the surrounding valleys.

Wonderfully warm Provençal B&Bs

  • Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Domaine les Roullets has just five rooms, but those rooms are packed with charm. Private terraces offer spectacular valley views beyond bare stone walls and a fabulous pool.
  • Chateau Talaud is a chateau turned B&B, which also has five stylish rooms decorated with antiques, plus two apartments and a separate, self-catering cottage. This is a great spot for visiting both Orange and Avignon.
  • La Manescale is a former shepherd's house set amid olive groves and vines. More like a home from home, it is filled with family furniture and paintings - there is even a library for guests to use if they've left the kindle at home.
  • Another B&B option would be the quirky La Ferme Rose on the outskirts of Moustiers. Its owner has a passion for collecting weird and wonderful things from soda syphons to shell lamps, all of which are incorporated into the property's design.
  • L'Hôtel Sous les Figuiers is situated in the small town of St Remy de Provence. A B&B with a difference, it doubles as an artist's workshop, where you can take painting classes if you want to release your inner Chagall.

For foodies

  • La Bastide de Moustiers is a 17th Century bastide with elegant, understated interiors, lovely gardens and terraces and a restaurant menu by Alain Ducasse.
  • If you want to eat well, but also learn something about what you're eating then Château de Berne is for you. Surrounded by 1,500 acres of private vineyards, they offer wine tastings and cookery classes.
  • La Mirande in Avignon is an immaculately decorated former Cardinal's mansion right in the heart of town, with a Michelin starred restaurant and sumptuous rooms.
  • L'Artemise is a heavenly gastronomic restaurant with rooms on a hillside just outside Uzes, with lovely views and a lovely garden. The 'surprise' menu changes daily.
