Saint Remy de Provence boutique hotel
Hotel Tourrel, a beautiful Saint Remy de Provence hotel
Wow. The Hotel Tourrel has got everything. 7 luxury suites, with designer furniture, a rooftop swimming pool, a wine bar with a carefully compiled list of local and regional wines, a great restaurant, and all this in the heart of Saint Remy de Provence. Step out of the luxurious haven that is the Hotel Tourrel and the shops, restaurants and shady cobbled streets of Saint Remy await. If the bustle gets too much return to the cool interior of your room which is equipped with every luxury. The hotel is a refurbishment of a 17th century mansion belonging to the Tourrel d’Almeran family. Room rates start at €25o in low season.
We love it. For nearby vineyard visits, Provence Guru recommends Domaine Milan and Domaine Vallongue. Domaine Milan is a vineyard set on the same chalky soil as Petrus in Bordeaux. It is the declared aim of the owner Henri Milan for his most prestigious wine to match Petrus not only in taste but also in price. Towards the village of Eygalieres, Domaine Vallongue offers full bodied powerful reds redolent of the heat-baked earth on which the vines grow.
For restaurants, on the outskirts of Saint Remy de Provence is Maison Druout, which offers innovative modern cuisine at a competitive price. Slightly further afield Bistrot du Paradou, offers a lively and unique atmosphere, plus in high summer the chance to celebrity spot.
