Fodor's Expert Review La Benvengudo

Les Baux-de-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, 13520, France

With manicured grounds shaded by tall pines, this graceful shuttered mas feels centuries old but was built to look that way some 30 years ago. The family-owned inn comes with heavy old beams, stone fireplace, and terra-cotta tiles that enhance the elegant interiors. Guest rooms are refined and modern, with charming touches (throws on the settees, comfy cushions on the bed, large bathrooms), and views out over green lawns or spacious private terraces. Air-conditioning in all the rooms and a lovely pool are perfect for cooling off on hot summer days in Provence. Dinner (the prix-fixe Provençal-Mediterranean menu is €57) is served by the olive-shaded pool, or you can have a drink on the stone-tabled terrace.
