spring hotel news: provence and saint-tropez

February 7th, 2011

“He surveyed his surroundings carefully and found that there was no shadow around,

So, an early spring it will be.”

Punxsatawney Phil has spoken.   To the delight of those tired of the seemingly permanent snow masses accumulating on their streets, the official word is an early spring.  Luckily enough, spring sees the reopening of two of southern France’s most beloved gems.  Rumor has it, Phil’s already packing his bags!

March ushers a new season for Hotel Crillon le Brave.  And, for the first two months, the hotel is offering 50% off room rates in March and April*.  Take advantage of one of its week-long cooking programs, Truffle & Wine weekends or Provençal Family Adventure. Sitting atop a hill in Provence, the charming hotel is made up of seven beautifully restored stone houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries – all linked by bridges, cobblestone walkways, and hidden courtyards.  Embodying the region’s famous southern fare, Crillon le Brave’s restaurant serves up local dishes such as gigot d’agneau (leg of lamb) and filet de rougets (fresh wild sea bass).Crillon le Brave

Then head southeast to Saint-Tropez to La Réserve Ramatuelle, reopening in April.  The cliffside hotel has some of the best views of the Mediterranean; the entire sea-facing exterior is made up of floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize exposure and fill rooms with natural light.  (Goodbye darkness before 5 PM!)  The star is the 1,000 square-meter spa.  Here enjoy an exclusive La Mer treatment (the iconic beauty company designed a series of treatments specially for the hotel) or participate in its signature slimming-sculpting six-day program – the perfect ending after eating till your heart’s content in Provence.

Thanks, Phil!
