Fontaine de Vaucluse
A blissful escape to a French country golf estate hidden among the olive groves in Provence – includes breakfast and an optional golf lesson
With cool, neutral tones and a refined decor, guestrooms here ooze warmth and class. Each one is individually decorated, but all boast equally tasteful furnishings and charming features, such as exposed-wood beams and stone-clad walls. The supremely comfortable sleeping area comes with plush twin or double beds, while the elegant en-suite bathroom contains a luxurious rain shower. While the Superior rooms open out onto a delightful shared terrace, those wanting to enjoy their own space might want to opt for a Luxury room, which comes with its own private patio area with sun loungers and stunning views over the surrounding gardens.

Wake up to a traditional petit déjeuner Provençale with a gorgeous buffet of French specialities at the elegant on-site restaurant, where you can feast on platters of charcuterie, baskets of freshly baked croissants and pain aux raisins and plenty of local cheeses. Offering dishes created using the medieval clay oven that was discovered within its walls, this sophisticated bistro boasts a specially curated menu that champions regional fare, featuring the likes of cassoulet, bouillabaisse and ratatouille. Chef Stephane Devalois often works with local cooks and regional producers, so you’ll likely get the chance to sample plenty of Provençal produce over a relaxed lunch or dinner.
Between May and September, the hotel offers an outdoor massage programme, where guests can enjoy a range of treatments from the comfort of the garden pavilion. Soak up the gorgeous natural vistas while indulging in a facial or full-body massage, before reclining to the terrace for a cleansing cup of mint tea.
Nestled between the lush Luberon Valley and the foothills of the Alps, Domaine des Sources enjoys a fantastically secluded location set among verdant vineyards and fluorescent lavender fields. It’s just a ten-minute drive to the hilltop of village of Forcalquier, home to a pretty 19th-century chapel and a lively produce market, where you can sample the region’s renowned (but lethal) absinthe.
In addition to the myriad hiking and biking trails in the area, other highlights include the fascinating Ecomusée l’Oliver, which offers insight in to the region’s olive-growing heritage, the serene Prieuré de Salagon monastery and the mystical Rochers de Mées, a network of rocky pinnacles that are said to have once been home to roaming monks and their Saracen mistresses. Marseille Provence Airport is just over an hour’s drive away.
