Passionate about sport and the culture of Provence, the hotel owners want to create an experience of sharing and exchanging.
At the hotel, the watchful shadow of Frédéric Mistral, Provence’s most famous writer, is always present (indeed, so is the very spirit of Provence). You’ll see the stained glass window based on Mistral’s poem “Vincent et Mireille”, quotes in the local Provençal language, santon figurines, paintings, photos and, of course, the lounge named after Mistral. Outside, the spirit of Mistral and his beloved Provence can be found in the leaves of the olive trees or on the cobbled Place Jeanne de Flandreysy with its authentic village fountain. Every 23rd June, the square invites numerous people to celebrate the traditional festival of the Feux de la Saint-Jean with the folk group Canto Cigalo.
