French fan­tasies

AN­OTHER EX­CEL­LENT op­tion for French sum­mer sun is Cril­lon le Brave in the Vau­cluse re­gion of Provence. In­hab­it­ing much of a small hill­side vil­lage, im­pos­si­bly stylish, rus­tic-chic bed­rooms are shared be­tween eight houses, con­nected by bridges, al­leys and court­yards. Food is in­te­gral to the ex­pe­ri­ence and over­seen by wun­derkind Jérôme Blanchet. Start the day with the most ex­quis­ite buf­fet break­fast on the ex­pan­sive ter­races. Later, head to re­laxed Bistro 40K, where ev­ery­thing is sourced within 40km, or the out­stand­ing La Ta­ble du Ventoux. There’s also an out­door pool (heated be­tween March and Novem­ber), a boule court and bikes you can bor­row to ex­plore the sur­round­ing coun­try­side.
