In the Area


Most people who visit Crillon le Brave understand that one of the best things about being there is NOT having lots of things to do! The best days are often ones spent lazily exploring the Provencal "art de vivre" by sitting in a café in a nearby village watching the world go by. But for those who like a bit more structure to their day, we have prepared a series of great driving excursions from the hotel. These half-day and whole day trips (pdf) take in all of the main Provencal sites, from Châteauneuf du Pape and its vineyards, to Orange and Vaison la Romaine and their Roman antiquities, to trendy (and busy!) Gordes and the Lubéron. And of course, the bigger interesting cities of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence are both well worth a visit.
 
For the more energetic, we have prepared a collection of great cycling and walking routes out from the hotel to discover the nearby countryside. There are options for all levels of effort from a gentle stroll around the village to a cycle ride up nearby Mont Ventoux. Pick your own level of engagement!

Of course, there are also a host of other activities that are easily accessible from Crillon le Brave and can be arranged by our reception team. There are good golf courses nearby, tennis courts at hand in the village, horse-back riding on Mont Ventoux, kayaking on the Sorgues river, and much more.
"Easily the best hotel we've ever stayed in."
