Provence continues to be one of the most sought after destinations for American travelers (with such dreamy landscapes and cuisine, it’s easy to see why!), and there’s a new luxury hotel to put on your radar. In the valley beneath Les Baux-de-Provence, one of the prettiest medieval villages in Europe, the Domaine de Manville is opening in June 2014 on a 100-acre estate that used to be a working farm.
The landscape is quintessential Provence: the property lies in the shadow of towering plane trees, surrounded by olive groves and herb gardens. For such a small hotel (30 elegant rooms), there are ample facilities. Count a spa, fitness room, gourmet restaurant, kids club, pool, and a scenic 18-hole golf course that was constructed in an eco-friendly way.
The Domaine is billed as “a luxurious country palace” which seeks to provide the “Provencal lifestyle experience.” There are also nine exclusive villas on the property- available for familiies and small groups to rent.
