Soaking Up Provence's Charm in a Chateau Near Vaucluse, France
The sounds and scents that waft through the night as you walk into Château de Massillan are so characteristic of the region—cicadas, lavender, warm wind (no Mistral this evening)—you'd know you're in the South of France with your eyes shut. This stylish Provence hotel near Avignon and Orange is a luxurious château retreat that combines contemporary flair with traditional comforts. Antique mirrors, Murano chandeliers, and 18th-century chaises complement the recently refreshed decor. An excellent restaurant serving modern French cuisine also offers a fine selection of regional wines—and in these evocative surroundings, even the simplest plate of cheese or Serrano ham is unforgettable.
