You don’t need a DeLorean, a time-reversal device or mystical powers to stop the world’s headlong rush. Simply drop your computer, jump on a train and head to the heart of the Alpilles natural park, towards Les Baux-de-Provence and the Manville estate, where you’ll find a 5* slow luxury address lost in an ocean of greenery.
RENOVATED WITH (GOOD) TASTE using natural materials, stone and whitewash walls, woven rush or wood, eco-responsible commitments, the old farm is organized around a large courtyard where the fountain’s water sings. Under the dreamy shade of the hundred-year-old plane trees, close your eyes. Take advantage of the calm, the quietness of the place and the sweetness of its good vibes. Open them again only to visit the permaculture farm, the 18-hole eco-certified golf course, the gastronomic restaurant, the gardens planted with olive, cypress and almond trees, and the winter garden…
