Who should go

Perfect for romantic trips, cycling breaks, family luxury and a pampering spa break.

The pool

The outdoor pool is set on an elevated terrace in a relaxed environment surrounding by comfortable chic sun loungers. It is 6m-11m so the perfect size for a casual length rather than a full on work out.

The Bar

The Bar is open from 11:00 to 22:00. Whether you are looking for a quick latte or a cocktail or pastis, everything is on offer here. The Bar itself has plenty of different areas for a quiet drink. Outside, in the early evening, the Terrace Ventoux (above the pool) is a great place to sit and watch the ever-changing shadows of the corrugated southern face of Mont Ventoux. They also have live music several nights a week with a mix of gentle jazz and Mediterranean rhythms.

The Restaurant

The hotel is very much centred around ensuring you have a fantastic culinary experience. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. The hotel has two eateries giving you the opportunity to enjoy a variety of dishes and surrounding.

Restaurant La Table du Ventoux welcomes you every day for lunch and dinner. Sit on the main terrace overlooking the vineyards and olive groves of Provence and enjoy a Mediterranean-style cuisine, in a bistronomic atmosphere. Provence cuisine in a gastronomic bistro version is showcased at La Table du Ventoux, with a generous cuisine, always based on the best local products. Thus, the sardines with piquillos, ceviches or the large pissaladière served on a board are perfect to enjoy good food with friends while admiring the view from the terrace.

The restaurant is open from 12:00 to 13:30 and from 19:00 to 21:30.

Restaurant La Madeleine is the gastronomic restaurant. Offering a refined cuisine, inspired by local products of Provence above all. Two menus: 5-course menu and 7-course menu.

The restaurant is open from Wednesdays to Saturdays from 19:00 to 21:30.

The property feels utterly peaceful, with its glorious views of vineyards, olive groves, and Mont Ventoux -- you can see these spectacular views from the rooms and the golden stone terraces surrounding the swimming pool." - Frommers
