Summary of Domaine des Andéols
This beautiful and unique Domaine surrounded by lavender fields, apricot trees, cypress trees, olive groves and many more is a little gem in the heart of the Lubéron region. We stayed here for two nights and were overwhelmed by the attentiveness and kindness of all the staff. They paid attention to every little detail and, for example, would offer fresh fruit smoothies to everyone by the pool in the afternoons.
Each guesthouse is designed differently making each experience so unique. We had a Suite Nature with our own private garden. The room and bathroom were huge and all fully equipped with the latest technology (even had a fancy Japanese electric toilette). The bed, the pillows and the sheets were all so amazing that we slept extremely well. Some of the guesthouses have private pools but otherwise there are two large pools accessible to everyone.
There is a beautiful harmony overall in the Domaine and you will feel really relaxed and serene during your stay. The owners are passionate about art and, in addition to the very stylish suites and guesthouses, you will find interesting pieces of art all around the outside areas. Every meal we had was so tasty, fresh and healthy that we didn't feel it was necessary to go out for dinner so we stayed at the Domaine. They grow most of the fruit and vegetables on the Domaine and even have their own farms with chickens, cows, etc. They know exactly where everything on your plate comes from and I find this so important nowadays.
If you're in Provence and you want to treat yourself to a bit of luxury in an eco-friendly environment, then I really recommend staying at this wonderful Domaine.
