The hotels experts at the MICHELIN Guide

What might at first look like a typographical error is in fact a small distinction of large significance. Within the vast Château Beaulieu wine estate, best known for its mass-market rosé, there’s a smaller estate, specializing in premium organic whites and reds. This is Villa Baulieu — note the 17th-century spelling. And at the heart of the Villa Baulieu estate is the 17th-century Villa Baulieu itself, an incongruously Tuscan-style château that’s now a beautiful little luxury hotel in the Alain Ducasse collection.

Its eleven rooms and suites are named for historical figures of local significance, and are decorated in a variety of styles, from Italian and English styles to Napoleon III and Louis XIV and XVI. For all their variety, though, they share their high-end comforts in common, as well as their sheer spaciousness — more pronounced at the top of the range, of course, but notable throughout.

There’s a jacuzzi atop one of the towers, overlooking the gardens and the pool, and massages and spa treatments are available as well. The estate features a tennis court and a boules pitch, as well as a fleet of mountain bikes for exploration. Wine tasting and grape-picking feature heavily among the vineyard-related activities, and tours of local olive oil and chocolate makers can be arranged as well. And, as the involvement of a certain Mr. Ducasse might indicate, the cuisine is a particular focus; there’s nothing so organized as a restaurant, rather a table d’hôte where meals booked in advance are served in the château’s dining room or one of its many other indoor or outdoor spaces. This hotel is implementing enhanced safety and cleaning measures as required by the Tablet Recovery Pledge. Our Customer Service team is happy to provide full details of each step being taken.
