Benvengudo, a typical provençale Bastide settled between olive groves and lavender fields
For a long time this area was entirely devoted to the art of viticulture. This was before Maryse and Daniel Beaupied, she a passionate antiquarian and he a renowned chef, made this place a unique and atypical family home which has become an inseparable part of Les Baux-de-Provence for since nearly half a century.
Today, the tradition lives on with the Beaupieds daughter, Carole and her husband Viktor who in 2015 helped to finalise the renovation of the Bastide. During the renovation the architects, landscape gardeners, designers and artists all thought how to create each of their individual ideas which has resulted in a unique blend of tradition and modernity while maintaining the authenticity and the essence of this unique place; Provence is characterfully present here in all it’s beauty and proudness.
The access to the house is via a small pathway which is bordered by cypress, lavender and olive trees. This four-star hotel likes to think of itself as a home with unique decorations such as the beautiful stonework and solid wood furnishings and colour schemes in various shades of beige. The furniture was painfully located in the region’s antique shops and lives together side-by-side with contemporary pieces such as French VIlla Alys lighting. The lights, colours & harmonies of Provence have been skillfully revisited in watercolour in each of the rooms and suites which have the exclusive works of the painter Yves Boussin.
Benvengudo thinks and offers itself differently; this is a Bastide in Provence, a place where conviviality is honored for the entire duration of your stay. True authentic luxury can be found here.
