A gastronomic break in Provence

Seasonal dining in Les Baux-de-Provence

Room service at the Domaine de Manville

Late spring is an ideal time to experience Les Baux-de-Provence in southern France in all its glory. It’s already warm, the northwesterly mistral wind is little more than a breeze and you’ll beat the summer crowds. A good base for exploring the hilly region is the Domaine de Manville, a magnifcently converted farmhouse renowned for its seasonally inspired menus. Spring highlights in its restaurant include rabbit, asparagus and peas, using produce gathered from the hotel gardens, local markets and surrounding terroir. Borrow the hotel’s electric bikes for a scenic ride up to the nearby medieval village of Les Baux. Once you’ve had your fll of panoramic views and boutique shops, cycle downhill to the village of Paradou. Le Bistrot du Paradou, with its single set menu of simple Provençal dishes is a local institution and featured in Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence. Luckily there’s no need to exert yourself after a meal – your power-aided bicycle will see you comfortably to the hotel door.
