Crillon Le Brave

Situated atop a hill above the town of Bédoin in Provence, Crillon Le Brave is luxury epitomized — the kind of place you will never want to leave.

A beautiful bar looks out over the valley and onto Mont Ventoux in the distance. Windows in the rooms offer expansive views of the countryside here in Provence. 

This is a luxury escape like no other bordering on the Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine region and perched on a hill in the shadow of the legendary Mont Ventoux (one of the Tour de France's most legendary climbs). Food here is spectacular and the people proud. 

The property itself is much like wandering around a medieval fortress with the charm of a Provençal 5 star resort. C'est magnifique.
