During our fourth day in Provence, we found ourselves on the road with direction to Baumanière les Baux-de-Provence. I have seen this 5 stars hotel in many different publications, as well as photos in social medias. Needless to say, I was very excited for this visit and see it with my own eyes.
Upon arrival at the hotel, we got to try a few delightful regional delicacies at the restaurant La Cabro d’Or. We have been told that the ingredients that were used for the meals were gathered at the hotel’s garden. After we finished lunch, we were invited to have a quick glance into the kitchen, where we had the pleasure of personally meeting and thanking the chef and his colleagues for this lovely welcome.
Although I would have easily spent the whole day in the hotel, there were two activities on our schedule that I didn’t want to miss. First, a visit to Les Carrières de Lumières and second, a visit to Les Baux de Provence Village.
Unfortunately, I don’t have many photos from Les Baux de Provence Village because our visit was quite short, and by the time we were there, the mountain little village was crowded and the light was quite harsh.
Afterwards we returned to the hotel. But before we left for dinner at L’Oustau de Baumanière, we took some photos that you can see in the post above, in the beautiful gardens of Baumanière les Baux-de-Provence.
Later on, at the 2 star Michelin restaurant L’Oustau de Baumanière, we were offered an 8 course dinner. This must have been the best dinner I’ve ever had in my life. It’s hard to describe such a perfection with words. You have to go and experience it yourself. After this experience, I am afraid I will have some troubles with returning to my ordinary kitchen, and I have already started considering taking up French cooking lessons.
We only stayed one night at Baumanière les Baux-de-Provence, but for sure I can easily imagine spending one whole week in this magical place. The next day was day 6 in Provence, a day we had to leave this beautiful property very early in the morning for our drive to the next stop, to Luberon.
