The village of Crillon le Brave, at the foot of Mont Ventoux, is already well known to travel operators, thanks to its hotel of the same name. Now a new hotel, la Maison de Crillon, has taken up its rightful place in the village, easily holding its own against its exclusive neighbour. 11 bedrooms, combining unstated luxury, minimalist design and a zen atmosphere, await fans of beautiful destinations and the great outdoors.
This modern-looking, dry stone building which combines wood, metal and stone has 11 delightful “superior” and “deluxe” bedrooms, and suites, decorated with designer creations and objects gleaned during various travels. All rooms are equipped with high-end products – i-pads, Harman Kardon sound system, Nespresso machines, beautiful bed linen, Molton brown toiletries and room fragrances etc. and have their own balcony or terrace opening onto Mont Ventoux.
A heated 15 x 6 m pool looks out across the wide open spaces at the foot of Mont Ventoux. There’s an Honesty Bar with a selection of cold drinks, salads and light snacks available for guests so, if you feel like it, you can spend the entire day just enjoying the view.
Discretion and trust are the hotel’s watchwords: guests should feel very much at home and are expected to pay honestly for any drinks they have signed for.
Sports enthusiasts can borrow bikes from the hotel to climb the legendary Mont Ventoux as well as mountain bikes for exploring the many marked trailsnearby. A gym on site allows guests to continue – or embark upon – their exercise regime during their holidays.
Public rates from €230 to €340 in low season, and €290 to €390 in high season – contact us for tour operator rates.
The hotel reopens on the 14th April 2017 and will remain open until the 4th November.
