7 places to be pampered in Provence this winter

What if spring arrived early? We’re chasing lightness and revitalisation at the beautiful spas hidden away in Provence. Nests of soft hues, sometimes warmed by a chimney fire, these are dream places to be pampered, and even enjoy the rays of winter sun. Here are our favourites.
Escape to the Aix countryside

In the spa of Villa La Coste, clean lines, natural stones and light wood cultivate the same contemporary elegance as the art-strewn vineyard that surrounds it. A true disconnect, with 100% natural treatments and a holistic approach including meditation and yoga sessions.

A special break at Les Baux

In Les Baux-de-Provence, the sleekly-designed Domaine de Manville spa offers treatments from a range of homemade products made with natural ingredients from the region, such as olives and lemons. It’s a nod to the former agricultural activity of this Alpilles farmhouse, now converted into a luxury hotel.

A cocoon in Avignon

In a country house dating from 1850, the spa of the Auberge de Cassagne offers a cosy bubble for pampering with an ultra-sensory approach to body care. We love the play of light, which is the signature of this inviting address just outside the City of the Popes.

Roman voluptuousness at the Cadière d’Azur

At the AromaSpa Hotel Bérard, water is a source of well-being in the Roman baths, richly decorated with beautiful stone. We love the pool dedicated to relaxation and freshness, the water ‘baptism’ and the aromatherapy treatments on offer in this corner of the Var.

Baths of light in Gordes

With a view of the Luberon hills, the indoor spa pool at the Hotel Les Bories already offers a the chance for peaceful contemplation. But for well-being, this spa focuses on aromatherapy and the benefits of white light in a chic, refined atmosphere that benefits all the senses.

A refined stopover at Le Castellet

In a well-being area with graphic architecture, the Hotel du Castellet invites you on a glamorous health journey. The stages? A hammam and a sauna of course, a divine indoor pool, a Kneipp canal (with its succession of hot and cold pools) and an invigorating salt cave. You can finish off with one of the top-quality treatments.

Pleasure for the senses in Mane

In its native land of Haute-Provence at the Couvent des Minimes spa, the L’Occitane brand offers all its expertise and authentic ingredients such as lavender or honey. With surroundings in pop colours, curved lines and an omnipresent light, you feel you’re truly in Provence.
