Does Provence make you think of Lavender growing in fat straight rows, long lunches in drowsy medieval hilltop villages and family run vineyards? Then the chances are that you have read one of Peter Mayle's books about the region or seen the television series based on his stories. There is plenty of fantastic accommodation; our list of the best places to stay in Provence is below.
The Hotel Crillon le Brave in the village of the same name, is a particular favourite with tile-floored rooms decorated in cool blues and neutrals which are absolutely perfect for the area and architecture. The accommodation is spread amongst a cluster of old pink stone buildings linked by atmospheric cobbled alleys, and enjoys wonderful views of Mont Ventoux.
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.
If you fancy a few nights in Avignon, La Mirande in the centre of the city, was created from a 14th century Cardinal's Palace. It's sumptuous bedrooms ooze romance and the food from its Michelin starred dining room is memorably delicious.
