Hotel Overview


A short drive north-east of Avignon.

Rooms at Hotel Crillon le Brave

The hotel occupies much of the old historic centre of Crillon-le-Brave, and its rooms and suites are located in eight historic village houses connected by bridges, alleyways and hidden courtyards. Each of the houses retains its own charm and character that reflect the rich history of the village, while all have been renovated to the highest modern standards of comfort. Most of the buildings date from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Food and facilities

Befitting the culinary reputation of Provence, Crillon- le-Brave prides itself on its food. Restaurant Jérôme Blanchet, housed in a beautiful vaulted dining room, offers exquisite traditional cuisine based around the produce of local farmers, artisans and wine-makers, with menus refreshed once a month to stay in harmony with the freshest ingredients. For a more relaxed dining experience, Bistrot 40K offers simple, delicious cuisine with the same emphasis on local produce, with the added bonus of a trip to the Reboul Wine Cellar to pick your accompaniment.

Activities at Hotel Crillon le Brave

This region’s natural beauty, and Crillon-le-Brave’s secluded location, mean exploring the local area is an absolute must. On foot, you can discover the beautiful local village or venture to nearby Bedoin; a beautiful stroll along forested paths and lanes. Cyclists, meanwhile, will feel very at home here: the hotel has a fleet of bikes on hand on which you can explore the surrounding vineyards and villages of the Ventoux – or, if you’re very fit, nearby Mont Ventoux, the “Géant de Provence”. Detailed maps are available at the hotel. Wine lovers will also find Crillon-le-Brave a paradise, and with famous names such as Gigondas, Vacqueyras, and Beaumes de Venise all nearby, you won’t have to travel far for an exquisite wine tasting experience.
