86. Crillon Le Brave, Provence, France

Ranked #86 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.

In a perfect little pocket of Provence, Crillon Le Brave embraces seven 15th-century hilltop village houses linked by winding alleys, bridges and courtyards.

Stone buildings with shuttered windows, roses and wisteria are surrounded by a sun-splashed patchwork of rolling hills. The charming houses boast authenticity, elegance and insouciance. There are leisurely pursuits (biking, boules, sunning by the pool) and a mini spa, but food and wine take centre stage.

Chef Jérôme Blanchet’s fine-dining restaurant is very fine indeed and the more casual Bistrot 40K showcases the local area’s bountiful produce from local truffles, cheese and oil to a crisp Ventoux rosé.

Size 30 rooms and suites, a two-bedroom house genuine guest score 5/5 genuine guest review “Ideal for a quiet and romantic weekend.”

Did you know The name Bistrot 40K refers to the fact that the fresh produce is sourced from within 40 kilometres of the hotel.
