Fodor's Expert Review Domaine de Manville

Les Baux-de-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13520, France Fodor's Choice

With so much to recommend it—lovely decor, an idyllic setting, impeccable service, a spa, and a golf course—the Domaine de Manville is an ideal spot to relax in a charming location. Set among majestic old plane trees on 100 acres of manicured gardens and olive groves, the hotel's two beautifully restored 18th-century buildings offer sumptuous rooms stylishly outfitted in contemporary haute Provençal. Just as well suited for a romantic retreat as a family getaway, many of the hotel's well-equipped suites are like small apartments unto themselves: the duplex family suites include bathrooms on each floor and most rooms have either a private terrace or balcony. As a bonus, magnificent views are to be had from every angle of the property, including the pool and 18-hole golf course. The property also offers nine ultracontemporary, full-service villas—large enough for eight—with their own private pool and golf carts to tool around the property. No need to step foot off the premises, as the Michelin-starred L'Aupiho gastronomic restaurant, well-priced bistro, garden bar, and glassed-in winter garden (for breakfast or teatime), answer every culinary desire, and golfers will love the boutique, with everything they could need for a day on the green.
