Hameau des Baux Hotel, Paradou
The Hameau des Baux hotel is chic, inspirational and a wee bit eccentric – a concept-hotel where everything can be acquired, from the more than 300 pieces of vintage furniture from the 1950s through the 1990s to the china on the table, the artwork on the walls and even the straw hat in your room. Originally, this was a Provençal farmstead. Several stone houses are arranged around a square, creating the boutique hotel’s charming pastoral character. Interiors are colourful, modern and refreshingly different. Each room is one of a kind. “Chapelle”, “Cabrière”, “Souleilladou”, “Le Patio” – every single room here has a name, a soul, a personality. The hotel’s public areas are re-decorated once a year lest regulars get bored. A unique address for hotel enthusiasts.

Whether you fancy a spin in an Alfa Romeo Spider 2000 or a joyride in a Triumph TR4 to have a picnic in the country – simply choose from the hotel’s own fleet of vintage cars free of charge.
Even Provence has grey skies from time to time ... note that the houses are not connected to one another e.g. by an underground passageway, so you might get your feet wet going from one to the other.
