Fodor's Expert Review La Coquillade
Domaine de la Coquillade, Gargas, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 84400, France Fodor's Choice
Set among gentle rolling hills, elegant gardens, and 90 sun-drenched acres of vineyards (from which the Aureto estate wine is produced), this fabulous upscale hideaway is made up of several historic country houses restored to designer perfection and offering every modern luxury—just as terrific for a relaxing spa getaway as an active weekend of swimming, hiking through the many vineyards, and biking on one of the hotel's Swiss-made mountain bikes, and, of course, wine tasting. The stately cypress-and-lavender-lined approach is your first clue that this is no ordinary hotel. Once you arrive, take in the breathtaking views of vineyards and mountains from your private terrace or one of several expansive garden terraces, relax in the Jacuzzi while taking in the sunset, or indulge in a restorative treatment in the new state-of-the-art spa, then enjoy a sumptuous all-truffle dinner at -Le Gourmet gastronomic restaurant. For more casual dining there's also a gourmet bistro and the Jardin dans les Vignes terrace restaurant in summer.
