We recently discovered la Coquillade Village in Gargas, a little slice of paradise in the Luberon. Whether you’re a biking enthusiast or in need of a moment of total relaxation (thanks to an amazing 20,000 square foot spa), la Coquillade Village located in the South of France offers a unique experience in Provence.
DISCOVERING THE LUBERON
In the heart of the Luberon, la Coquillade Village rises in the middle of the Provencal hills. Who would have thought that this eleventh century construction would one day become an area entirely dedicated to well-being, sports, and relaxation? After a huge renovation project (more than 70 million euros), the billionaire Andreas Rihs has developed la Coquillade Village into one of the most extraordinary 5-star hotels in Provence. The service is precise, perfectly orchestrated with a clear attention to detail, and the hotel offers a wide range of activities to suit anyone.
LA COQUILLADE VILLAGE, A LUXURIOUS COCOON
If you were expecting a luxury hotel, you'll soon realize that it's much more than that. Situated on top of a hill, la Coquillade Village is more like the vacation spot you've always dreamed of. The infrastructure is worthy of the most beautiful palaces: a remarkable 20,000 square foot spa, three restaurants for all tastes, and sports activities out of the ordinary with one flagship activity: biking. Choose from racing bikes, electric, or mountain bikes to ride through the Luberon and discover its hilltop villages.
RELAXATION, GASTRONOMY AND MORE!
There are only 63 rooms and suites in this massive property. We love the Open Spa Suites, cosy and comfortable and absolutely perfect for a romantic weekend. Enjoy the private terrace or your personal spa overlooking the vineyards and hills of Luberon. Take advantage of the INIPI sauna in your Blue Moon bathtub.
If you are feeling hungry, the hardest decision will probably be to choose where to eat. The hotel has several dining areas: la Coquillade for a gastronomic experience, Les Vignes & son Jardin with its outside terrace where you’ll have a beautiful view of the vineyards under the sun, or Ristorante (which borders one of the two immense outdoor swimming pools) for the best of the Italian flavors.
La Coquillade Village also has its own vineyard: Aureto. Thirty-six hectares of organic vineyard producing an award-winning wine. Why not enjoy a visit of the winery and a nice wine tasting?
The Spa & Wellness Center has been conceived as a real journey of health and relaxation. There’s a large sauna overlooking the hills, steam room and steam bath, sensory shower, indoor heated pool, hot and cold baths, ice fountain, solarium, outdoor jacuzzis … breathe, you will be taken care of! Treat yourself to an exceptional massage or some of the award winning treatments (Best Day Spa in Western Europe 2018!).
Ideally located, Le Prieuré is at the crossroads of summer festivals, sports activities or more cultural moments. And for its guests, the establishment has thought of everything; ask for your roadmap and go, for example, to meet the wines of the Rhone Valley: Châteauneuf-du-Pape has many areas, but do not miss also the villages of Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Beaumes-de-Venise.
FOR CYCLING FANATICS
The special feature of this place is the BMC Cycling Centre. A massive showroom of the emblematic brand that sponsors competitors of the Tour de France. You will be able to rent the latest generation of racing bikes. Every Thursday morning you can also enjoy a ride with “Stromer bikes” (high-end electric assistance bicycles) for two hours, in order to see some of the most beautiful villages in the Luberon without pushing yourself too hard.
