Hotel Review

Spread throughout a cluster of atmospheric old buildings, linked by cobbled alleys, this gorgeous, well cared for and constantly improving hotel has a wonderful setting at the top of a perched village, with magnificent views of Mont Ventoux. It effortlessly combines luxury and character with beautifully decorated country-style rooms. The kitchen wins plaudits for its cuisine, served in a vaulted restaurant or on a lovely terrace. Check out the November truffle weekends, when the weather is almost always lovely.
