Hotel Crillon Le Brave

Perched above the town of Bedoin in the Provence region of southern France is the Hotel Crillon Le Brave. 

Morning sun shines in through the window overlooking the pool, countryside, and beyond. The somewhat ominous Mont Ventoux looms in the backdrop — one of the most iconic climbs in the legendary Tour de France bicycle race. 

Crillon Le Brave boasts a stunning bar, luxurious pool, and a restaurant worthy of royalty. The property is quiet, the rooms are beautifully appointed with showers that you won't want to step out of, and it is all within a few kilometres of the fairytale town of Bedoin. 

Come to Crillon Le Brave to relax, to eat, and to recharge after time on the road. Enjoy the cuisine, and of course, the wine.
