Coquillade Village: an expanding hotel
A beautiful start to the 2015 season, the Coquillade Village, the 5-star member of Relais and Châteaux, nestled in the heart of a vineyard spanning 42 hectares in le Luberon, opens a new hamlet. So, the hotel is enriched with an additional 35 bedrooms and suites, decked out in a contemporary, warming style tinged with a provincial spirit and a 1500m2 spa christened Coquillade Spa & Energie. The treatments on offer are mostly oriented around health and nature. The hotel also has three distinct dining spaces at its disposal where you may bump into Chef Christophe Renaud and talented pastry-chef René Solon. And so, guests can relish all of their hearts’ desires at gastronomic restaurant Le Gourmet, or at the Bistrot, which offers provincial specialities and sets itself up amongst the grapevines, and at Il Ristorante, the poolside Italian for simpler dishes. Know this: the establishment, which rests highly respectful of nature, was handed Ecolabel status in 2012. A. F.-M.
