Our favourite rooms
For the best view, it has to be Chambre Ventoux, which – on a clear day – showcases the mighty sight of Mont Ventoux from its terrace. The terrace also offers optimum temperature control: it gets sun in the morning and shade when things get a little sticky in the afternoon. Indoors, the split-level suite has a living and work area downstairs, a bedroom on the mezzanine, stone walls, a black linen sofa and a kitchenette. If you like your decor a little quirky, go for Chambre Luberon, which has a huge leather headboard, 19th-century armchairs and furnishings made from reclaimed wood.
There is a lengthy heated pool in the gorgeous grounds, flanked on one side by sunloungers and parasols, and surrounded by olive trees and rose bushes. There’s also a shade-providing canopy.
Bring a spare case to load up on the domaine’s organic Côte du Luberon reds and rosés. Don't forget your swimwear.
In-room treatments and massages can be arranged courtesy of the nearby Lotus Institut.
