Hotel Crillon le Brave is a relaxed and informal refuge where you can enjoy all of the simple pleasures of Provence. Located about 25 miles northeast of Avignon, our 32-bedroom hotel is perched on top of a tiny hill village surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. The views from our rooms, terraces and gardens are stunning.
The many buildings which make up the Hotel date back to the 17th and 18th centuries although the village traces its history to the Roman era two thousand years ago. Like in many Provençal hill villages, each new generation constructed its homes on the ruins of its ancestors so that the buildings we see today have foundations and cellars that date back hundreds of years.
Most of the main eight buildings that make up the hotel today were once family dwellings but some had other uses as well. In most cases, we have kept the names of the previous inhabitants to help retain our connection to the village, its people and its historic roots.
The half-day and whole day driving trips take in all of the main Provencal sites, from Châteauneuf du Pape and its vineyards, to Orange and Vaison la Romaine and their Roman antiquities, to trendy (and busy!) Gordes and the Lubéron. And of course, the bigger interesting cities of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence are both well worth a visit. Our concierge have these routes and will help you plan your day to include visits to these areas.
For the more energetic, we have prepared a collection of great cycling and walking routes out from the hotel to discover the nearby countryside. There are options for all levels of effort from a gentle stroll around the village to a cycle ride up nearby Mont Ventoux. Pick your own level of engagement!
BAR LA GRANGE
Is open from the early hours to late at night and is a main centre of activity throughout the day. Whether you are looking for a quick latte or a laid-back pastis, this is the place to be.
La Grange Bar itself has plenty of different areas for a quiet drink and WIFI is available to catch up on laptop / ipad activities. Outside, in the early evening, the Terrace Ventoux (above the pool) is a great place to sit and watch the ever-changing shadows of the corrugated southern face of Mont Ventoux. Three nights per week in season, our favourite musiciens (Alex, Luis and Yann) join us for a few hours of gentle jazz and méditerranean rhythms.

About Crillon le Brave
Most people who visit Crillon le Brave understand that one of the best things about being there is NOT having lots of things to do! The best days are often ones spent lazily exploring the Provencal "art de vivre" by sitting in a café in a nearby village watching the world go by. But for those who like a bit more structure to their day, we have prepared a series of great driving excursions from the hotel. These half-day and whole day trips, take in all of the main Provencal sites, from Châteauneuf du Pape and its vineyards, to Orange and Vaison la Romaine and their Roman antiquities, to trendy (and busy!) Gordes and the Lubéron. And of course, the bigger interesting cities of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence are both well worth a visit.

This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, an the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel. Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true. Plus they charge the hotel a commission which is normally around 20% of the room rate
