Country house hotel with French charm, swimming pool, and top restaurant in Provence
Your dream French guesthouse is undoubtedly Domaine de Fontenille. This super-deluxe House of Hideaways accommodation in the south of France has everything taken care of down to the smallest detail and knows how to pamper their guests. A handwritten note upon arrival in the room, fresh cookies, and the weather forecast you receive every morning, the extremely friendly staff available 24/7, and star-rated food. At Manor Hotel Domaine de Fontenille, every little detail is important.
There's plenty to do on the estate: you can lounge by the pool, relax in the spa, go truffle hunting, and explore the grounds (plus the rest of Luberon Nature Park). A recommendation is to visit the estate's vineyard and see how they produce their own organic wine. And, of course, you can have a taste!
There is also much to see and experience in the beautiful Provence. Therefore, it is worthwhile to take the car and discover the most famous landmarks in the vicinity. Must-sees are the famous Roman bridge 'Pont du Gard' and the historical cities of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence.
Hungry after a day full of impressions? Take a seat in one of the two top restaurants located on the grounds of Domaine de Fontenille. Restaurant La Cuisine d'Amélie serves light dishes prepared with local ingredients in a bistro-like setting. Le Champ des Lunes is Domaine de Fontenille's Michelin-starred restaurant and offers you an unforgettable culinary experience.
Domaine de Fontenille is there for young and old, for couples and families, but especially for lovers of authentic French charm who also like to indulge in extra luxury and comfort. For families, spacious family rooms and even an apartment with its kitchen are also available. Dogs are also welcome!
When you're ready to go to sleep, you wander off to your beautiful room and roll into your gigantic bed. Or fill up the bathtub, grab something tasty from the mini-bar, and enjoy some more relaxation. At Domaine de Fontenille, you'll completely unwind, and staying at this unique manor hotel is mega wonderful!
Domaine de Fontenille is nestled in a picturesque estate located amidst the three picturesque places Bonnieux, Lacoste, and Lourmarin, and is surrounded by a 35-hectare organic vineyard where fantastic wines are produced. Allow yourself to be surprised in the tasting room and enjoy delicious products from our own land in the restaurants.
Tasteful rooms and suites
The 19 luxury rooms and suites of Domaine de Fontenille are beautifully decorated and each one is unique. There is a mix of different interior styles, plenty of natural light and furniture pieces made from natural materials. Most of these rooms offer views of the majestic cedars of the park and the Luberon hills and are equipped with a king-size bed and a spacious bathroom with marble.
Culinary connoisseurs can indulge in this House of Hideaways accommodation. The food at Domaine de Fontenille is of an unprecedented high level. This applies to the extensive breakfast that is ready for you every morning, with a wide selection of fresh, seasonal products: cheeses from Josiane Deal (best French craftsman), salted meat from the village, homemade pies, artisanal jams, eggs and various types of fruit. This also extends to lunch and dinner in the two top restaurants.
Pamper yourself in the spa
The intimate spa is a bright space equipped with a hamam, a fitness center (with advanced equipment), and a treatment room. Let the most skilled hands do the work while you relax and enjoy a delightful massage or treatment. There's also the opportunity to have your makeup done, perfect for a romantic evening out, or to attend a private Hatha yoga class.
