Domaine de Manville

5-star spa hotel in Les Baux-de-Provence

Domaine de Manville is a former agricultural estate nestled in the heart of the Alpilles, at the foot of the Château des Baux-de-Provence. Transformed with great taste and elegance in 2014 by the Saut family, originally from the region, it has now become a superb 5-star hotel, and is located on the former Golf des Baux-de-Provence.

General atmosphere

Sensitively transformed from farm buildings by heritage architect Mireille Pellen and interior designer Annie Zeau, the hotel’s long chamois-coloured facade with traditional wooden shutters overlooks a leafy courtyard with a melliflu fountain. Surrounded on one side by the spa and on the other side by the bar and the cinema, with some rooms above. The interiors are warm with bunches of modern art and bright colours that resist the bright Provençal light.

Today, Domaine de Manville is composed of a luxury hotel, a spa, a gourmet restaurant, and an eco-friendly 18-hole golf course. An atypical and luxurious decoration, which makes this rural palace a cocoon of greenery and well-being.

The rooms

Expect luxury without charge in the rooms: walk-in wardrobes, soft linen sheets that blend into smooth leather headboards, and huge bathrooms, elegant black and white chords. The surfaces are overflowing with private label products from Domaine de Manville, scented with jasmine. The baths are huge and the rain showers are repairing.

The food

Lieven van Aken, in charge of the Domaine’s kitchens and its restaurant, Auphio, will make you feel at home. From the delights of a foie gras hamburger with crunchy chips and garlic bowls, to the more gourmet Provencal lamb, the food is always full of new surprises. With an emphasis on bouillabaisse, artichokes and thyme in bloom, the best ingredients are served with the region’s famous rosé.

The equipment

There is a lot to do at Domaine de Manville, whether you want to spend a lazy holiday, a cultural holiday or a stay in a spa. The swimming pool is huge, electric bicycles await you near the door, and the 18-hole golf course designed by Thierry Sprecher is very popular. The service is friendly and professional, from the bartender who can advise you on the best local rosé, to the reception staff who will organise visits to Arles and beyond.

Beautifully designed to make the most of light filtration through the black and white mosaic spaces and above the large indoor pool, Esthederm spa is a haven of peace that delivers results. The Domaine de Manville products are slimming (caffeine and pink pepper oil) and firming (maritime pine, stimulating royal jelly, anti-ageing).

You can also train in technogym kinesis, or choose one of the legendary Esthederm treatments for their lifting and moisturizing properties.
