La chapelle sur la Sorgue à l’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

First of all you get lost in the maze of little streets of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue before passing through a gate at the corner of a Pénitents Chapel and find yourself in the huge courtyard of the Chapelle sur la Sorgue. This guesthouse, part of the Serenity Collection group, opened its doors in 2023 after an intensive restoration project. A complex made up of a 17th-century mansion and its outbuildings frames a garden courtyard partly dedicated to the swimming pool and its facilities (sauna, hot tub). Once in the building, you access the eight bedrooms, spread over the different levels, via a large stone staircase, one of them on the ground floor with private terrace.

Tiles or parquet floors, terracotta or celadon green walls, exposed beams or a large library… each one has its own atmosphere. Add the Verrière for spring breakfasts, a large lounge with fireplace for reading time, a fitness room, and an impeccable sense of service, it is easy to understand that this new place to stay in the town of antique dealers will quickly gain a loyal following!

All year round, from 180€/ room with breakfast

The 215 Gambetta in Cavaillon

Nearly three years of work were necessary to restore this 19th century mansion in the centre of Cavaillon, at the edge of the Luberon, to its splendour.

It had been abandoned for twenty years when Gilles and Valérie, originally from Cavaillon, acquired it, joyfully taking up the challenge of renovating the building themselves. And the result is stunning! Woodwork in fashionable colours, polished terracotta tiles on the floors, exposed stone walls, antique furniture, large windows that let in the light of the South… every detail has been seen to.

The four rooms and suites – some with fireplace and private terrace – offer beautiful spaces (25 or 50m²) and first-rate equipment. And finally, we love the naturally warm welcome from the owners… and their lilting accent! On sunny days, you can enjoy a generous breakfast served in the interior courtyard, lulled by the burbling of the fountain. A beautiful city guest house in the Luberon, which is open all year round!

All year rounf. From 170€/ 2people with breakfast

Le 215 Gambetta
Domaine du Fortin

Le domaine du Fortin à Ménerbes

While we are used to finding beautiful accommodation in the Luberon, only a few rare properties can boast a historical character as well showcased as Le Domaine du Fortin.

In 2020, the bastide and its outbuildings, first recorded in 1573, underwent a state-of-the-art renovation by the new owners, César Sanchez and Philippe Andrieu. The latter, from a family of Parisian antique dealers for five generations, chose to furnish the bastide in the style of a rich 18th-century Provençal residence. Now the private villa (110m²) or one of the four luxurious suites (from 42 to 90m²) in the main house can be rented, with their breath-taking view of the Luberon and sober decor, highlighting the period furniture.

The equipment (air conditioning, home automation, security, etc.) is that of a luxury establishment, with associated concierge service. Those of a contemplative nature will appreciate the large park with its olive grove of centuries-old trees, its orchard of cherry, almond, fig and wild plum trees and the numerous terraces and relaxation areas laid out all around the estate. The large heated swimming pool and the pétanque area in the woodland complete the effort to create the feel of a holiday in paradise across the estate.

All year round, 2 nights min., from 340€/ room with breakfast
