Nestled in the valley beneath Les Baux, one of the loveliest hilltop medieval villages in France, Domaine de Manville sits in a vast 250-acre estate. Originally a working farm, it is now a stylish hotel surrounded by olive trees, scented wild herbs, and lush green fields. With a large sunny spa, a fitness room, a scenic 18-hole golf course, a bistro, and a gourmet restaurant serving delicious dishes from Provence, the hotel truly captures the essence of the Alpilles region.
The atmosphere here at Domaine de Manville is one of warmth and intimacy, emphasizing individual style and comfort. The rooms feel spacious and airy and are inspired by the beautiful surroundings. All are tastefully decorated and have lovely views of the pool. Head to the pretty interior courtyard and have light lunch under the shade of the trees, accompanied by a glass of delightful Rosé de Provence. Then wander through the estate grounds, and you will soon see how Van Gogh and Cezanne found their inspiration in the Provençale landscape.
Having perfected your putt on Domaine de Manville’s 18-hole golf course and appreciated its scenic views, then sit by the pool with the scent of pine in the air and the soporific buzz of the cicadas in the trees. Visit the nearby village of Les Baux with its castle ruins and discover more amazing vistas. Be sure to pick up gifts of almond-flavored calissons, candied fruits, and honey nougat from the quaint boutiques throughout the village before returning for a massage in the Spa.

Family rooms or private love nests, the rooms of this luxury hotel reflect your feelings and promise holiday experiences that are always different in the sumptuous setting that is Provence. Shades of colors, variations on a theme … Variations in textiles and textures … Leather on the headboard, cotton, taffeta, and cashmere draping the windows… Annie Zeau, the Interior Designer, has designed Manville like a home more than a hotel. Nothing routine, nothing standardized about Manville. It is not a concept. There are no preconceived ideas. The place inspires the decoration. The Provence skies and the palace stars have expressed themselves in the contemporary design. Complimentary mini-bars that don’t look the part, art students’ work on the walls, browsing on the Isle Sur la Sorgue to turn up antique treasures. Annie Zeau wanted Edith and Patrick Saut to feel at home and created a family home feeling meant to be shared. The property is fully equipped and welcomes people with disabilities.

An Eco-responsible golf course in the Alpilles - Throughout four years, Domaine de Manville slowly and surely took shape. The golf course itself came into being as well, ceaselessly reworked and refined. Literally embedded in the rocky setting of Les Baux, the 18 hole golf course does not seek to be an English green or an oasis. It is part of the landscape, eco-responsible, and respectful of the natural resources. Plantings emphasize local species, and the atmosphere is fragrant with pine, oak, and olive trees. Provence and the Mediterranean influences accompany the changing seasons and color the fairways. During a getaway in the South of France, enjoy the exceptional setting of this very special 18 hole golf course.
