An idyllic stay in a 12th-century Romanesque abbey in the sleepy town of Salon-de-Provence- includes optional dinner or dining discount
Set in the sleepy town of Salon-de-Provence, this charming bolthole is housed in a 12th-century Romanesque abbey, nestled among 50 acres of pines and rosemary, with panoramic views stretching from the flamingo-speckled Camargue to the rugged peaks of Montagne Sainte-Victoire.
Behind its lovely stone facade, Garrigae Abbaye de Sainte Croix is home to a cosy restaurant where diners feast on Provençal dishes beneath creamy arches and a small spa with an outdoor treatment pavilion overlooking the pine-cloaked valley. Scattered throughout the abbey in the monks’ former living quarters, individually decorated rooms with chic colour schemes give a nod to the site’s peaceful nature.
An unplugged spot to recharge from digital life, the pace drums to a slower beat here – take breakfast on the panoramic terrace, swim lazy lengths in the outdoor pool, flake out with an al fresco spa treatment and then sleep off your massage haze on a sun lounger. Beyond the hotel’s lush grounds, this under-the-radar destination in southeastern France begs to be explored by foot: hike to the peak of Montagne Sainte-Victoire, stroll along the cobbled alleys carving through Les Baux-de-Provence, wander around the hilltop village of Gordes or strike out through Luberon National Park.
