This is interesting
Baumaniere les Baux de Provence is a legendary five-star Relais & Châteaux hotel located in Les Baux-de-Provence. Created via the merger of l'Oustau De Baumaniere and La Cabro d'Or, Baumaniere les Baux de Provence gives its guests the feeling of complete freedom and unforgettable relaxing moments in Provence.
The history of the hotel began in 1945, when Raymond Thuilier acquired the old Provençal farmhouse in an abandoned area at the foot of the ruins of the once formidable citadel of Les Baux. Hidden from the hustle and bustle, he decided to found an unusual gastronomic hotel, which soon became very popular with famous writers, talented artists, royalty, various celebrities, gourmets and regular tourists.
