Situated in charming Vaucluse, Hotel Crillon le Brave is a splendid 5-star hideaway in the Provence region ideal for those looking to disconnect from the urban frenzy and reconnect in a sublime natural environment.

The hotel is perched at the foot of Mont Ventoux in the quaint 12th-century hilltop village of Crillon le Brave, 40 kilometers north of Avignon and its TGV railway station. The towns of Aix en Provence and Marseille are less than one hour and 30 minutes south of Crillon le Brave.

In just 30 minutes, travelers will find themselves enveloped in the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône. Vaison-la-Romaine is also 30 minutes away. Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is reachable within 40 minutes and for those willing to venture out a bit further, The Côte d’Azur and Nice are a 3-hour drive away.

About the Hotel

The hotel received its name due to its architectural ensemble created entirely of blond Crillon stone. It stands at the very top of the village exuding an atmosphere full of charm and elegance and is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves typical of captivating Provence.

The boutique hotel’s 17 rooms and 17 suites are spread throughout the impeccably manicured property, sporting red floor tiles typical of Provence and a subtle décor complimented by antique furniture. Luxury linens, natural nuances in half-tones, cozy plaids and soft materials help create a serene ambiance that invites rest and luxurious relaxation.

Dining at Crillon le Brave

A buffet breakfast is served every morning. For evening meals, guests are invited to enjoy gourmet dishes at La Table du Ventoux or at La Madeleine restaurant.  

Chef Adrien Brunet nurtures the philosophy that “the essence of a recipe is not to transform the product, but to accompany it, to sublimate it in what is most noble: its original tastes.”

Lunch and dinner menus feature some of the best French countryside dishes including treasures from the farms and the sea along with a lovely wine selection and tantalizing desserts.

Spa des Écuries

Hotel Crillon le Brave invites guests to slow down the pace, reconnect and take advantage of a slower vacation experience to regain vital balance.

To help with this existential reconquest, the Spa des Écuries in the Luberon of the Pariente collection offers a range of personalized treatments in harmony with nature and to meet each of its guest’s personal needs. These include individual and couple’s massages and beauty and body treatments beneath the monumental arches of the ancient 18th-century stone vaulted stables – an unforgettable experience.

To the delight of health and wellness aficionados, Hotel Crillon le Brave has added two additional treatments to its already impressive offerings.

Rituals encompass a treatment designed to bring comfort to the most stressed areas of the body, combining manual techniques to relax muscles with pressotherapy applied to the legs. The pressotherapy procedure helps with lymphatic drainage, potentially making the arms, legs, or abdomen look slimmer or more defined due to the reduction of tissue fluid retention. The treatment can also ease aches and pains and detoxify the body from a buildup of toxins. It uses an air pressure machine to inflate a suit which squeezes targeted areas of the body.

Additionally, the Complex Face Massage x Tata Harper represents a Tata Harper facial treatment exclusively crafted for the Maisons Pariente collection. This facial treatment focuses on manual techniques, dedicating itself entirely to facial massage following a cleansing phase.

With a goal to relax, oxygenate, sculpt and rejuvenate the skin, the benefits of light therapy with an LED mask complement the facial massage, resulting in smooth and radiant skin health.  

For those wanting to explore more of the French countryside after relaxation and wellness treatments, bikes and tandem bicycles are available for rent on the property.
