Spread over three historic buildings just outside the village of Les Baux, guest rooms at this fabled hotel are the last word in Provençal chic—breezy, private, and beautifully furnished with antiques yet done with a contemporary flair. Elizabeth Taylor, Picasso, Churchill, and thousands of others have headed to this oasis—sheltered by rocky cliffs and set amid formal landscaped terraces—for some quintessential luxe-Provençal pampering. As for the famed Baumanière
restaurant (reservations essential), Ducasse-trained Michelin two-star chef Sylvestre Wahid continues to attract culinary pilgrims who revel in the varied menu—blue lobster grilled with butter in its shell, alongside spaghettini with truffles and basil.
