In keeping with our yearly tradition and being a supportive wife while my husband does the challenging climb up Mont Ventoux, I needed to find a place to pass the time. Thus the Spa des Écuries was my “sacrifice” for a few hours. Well, what choice did I have?
This 18th-century former stables has been converted into three unique treatment rooms with honey-colored stone walls and archways and bouquets of lavender. After a treatment, it’s nice to venture to the upper terrace of the hotel, find a comfortable sofa, order a glass of wine—which comes with a generous serving of nuts and olives—and just soak in the view.
But I can’t sit still for long because it’s also fun to wander all the little stone walkways of the hotel and hike way down below the village to enjoy a steep hike back up in order to work off all those croissants and such. Ah! Waiting is such drudgery!
Until we escape again. À bientôt!
