"...I longed for the pine trees and olive groves [...] Everything here speaks of families and eternity." "I know of no place more admirable than Les Baux. The countryside separates us from all that we find offensive [...] It reveals all that we have which is great, all that is real; it turns this inner greatness into a vocation [...] In Les Baux, grandeur has charm and charm is filled with a sense of grandeur."
André Suarez, Letter to Antoine Bourdelle
The Flagship of Provence
As one of the main world-famous locations in Provence, and one of the places most steeped in regional memories, Les Baux de Provence combines its outstanding mediaeval and Renaissance heritage with a sense of hospitality and a spread of culture that make it the "Flagship of Provence".
Grandiose decors revive traces of the past, upholding age-old traditions, providing a backdrop for the art of the people who have settled here, and hosting prestigious entertainments.
This is a place steeped in History but it has much more to offer. Traditional hospitality is a way of life here, thanks to gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels. The "Baux de Provence" label is a symbol of quality. The wines created by the rocks and sunshine are full-bodied and the olive oil is vigorous and fruity.
