La Coquillade

Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France

Why we love it

Surrounded by vineyards and lavender fields, Coquillade Village is pure Provençal. Embrace l’art de vivre with a glass of wine (the estate’s own, naturally) while enjoying views of the vast winery estate, Mont Ventoux and the Luberon. The hamlet has six residences, the oldest of which dates back to the 11th century. As La Coquillade is owned by Andy Rihs of BMC bikes, renting a bicycle from the cycling center is a must. Take a leisurely ride through the hills of Luberon, or go on a more challenging bike tour with a qualified guide and discover the natural beauty and rustic charm of nearby villages Gordes, Bonnieux and Lacoste.

Take in the views of the Calavon Valley, the Luberon mountains and the quaint villages of Bonnieux, Lacoste and Saignon from your private garden with heated pool and outdoor Jacuzzi. Inside, the mezzanine’s Provençal decor is warm and inviting, and exposed wooden beams add to the authenticity.


Spa & Wellness Center Coquillade
If you’re not one for lying by the pool all day, the Spa & Wellness center has an excellent choice of indoor and outdoor sporting activities. The group sessions have the classics (yoga, Pilates, fit attack) as well as a few not-so-classic (try FloatFit: exercising while balancing on a waterboard). If you have specific goals, there’s also individual sports coaching in which a specialist will create a bespoke training program for you. Soothe your well-worked muscles in the 16,145 sq ft spa, complete with Kneipp pools, steam bath, ice fountain, hammam, outdoor Jacuzzis and private garden. There’s also a Kids & Teens spa where children and young people can discover the world of wellness with specialist treatments and organic products.


Le Gourmet
Many items on the menu come from Coquillade’s own kitchen garden, and the chef’s seasonal menu takes diners on a culinary journey through it, and the terroir of the Luberon.


Spend a hazy afternoon strolling through Coquillade Village and marveling at the art exhibits.



Elite Traveler Tip
For a romantic setting, visit in July and August — bistro dining is around a wood-fire grill with tables beneath pretty vine-draped pergolas
