Benvengudo! - Meaning Welcome Home!

In 1967 Maryse, a country child, and her husband Daniel Beaupied, a native of Savoie and a Michelin-starred chef at Riboto de Taven, acquired a superb plot of land at the foot of the Château des Baux-de-Provence. Maryse and Daniel have built an authentic family estate where their guests feel completely at home .

However, when they decided to retire, their daughter, Carole, did not see the book closing like this. Together with her husband, Viktor, they decided to write their story on a new page to perpetuate this family saga.

Desirous of bringing a touch of modernity while keeping the spirit of the estate and the charm of Provence, they undertook various renovations. Concerned with preserving the Provençal traditions and the soul of their property, they engaged architects, landscapers and craftsmen whose aim was work of the highest quality. They have achieved an innovative vision while understanding how to retain the charm of a country house imbued with modernity.

Provence is offered to you as soon as you pass through the majestic wrought iron portal, entering an avenue bordered by sun-kissed lavender bushes, and guiding you through the olive grove. The song of the cicadas welcomes you and happiness is at the end of the road.

Our 4-star hotel comprises a large house made up of several buildings using the beautiful stone of Les Baux, extracted from the local quarries. The rooms and suites of La Bastide are situated on the garden side and our cottages are of varying sizes. Our guests immediately feel at home in a unique environment.

Contemporary furniture blends beautifully with older pieces selected by Maryse Beaupied from antique and second-hand dealers in the region. The spirit of Provence is apparent in every room witnessed by the colors, the texture of the fabrics, and the choice of paintings by the artist Yves Boussin, created exclusively for Benvengudo.

Carole and Viktor would like their guests to feel at home in their Bastide nestled in the heart of the Alpilles. Their wish is for their guests to take the time to live and enjoy the luxury of being in one of the most beautiful regions of France – Provence!
