    "Today we wish to make the vision and experience of Baumanière travel beyond its native domain. To ensure that this development is in keeping with our sensibilities and the emotions we wish to communicate, we have created a brand, “Les Maisons de Baumanière”, our personal hallmark and a pledge of continuity of the spirit that has guided every gesture at Les Baux de Provence for over 60 years."

    For more than 65 years, the signature style of Baumanière has been evolving naturally in its native setting between Provence and the Camargue region. Raymond Thuilier, Jean-André Charial's grandfather, took the first step in its expansion by opening a second, “simpler” restaurant just 900 metres from l'Oustau de Baumanière. La Cabro d'Or has grown into a 25-room Relais & Châteaux hotel and a gastronomic restaurant.

    Just a stone’s throw from Avignon, Le Prieuré, recently acquired by Geneviève and Jean-André Charial, reopened its doors in 2007, after 6 months of extensive renovations. With its priest’s garden bordered by wisteria-draped trellises, this Relais & Chateaux hotel, built in the 14th C, has a rare charm. Jean-André Charial staffed it with loyal coworkers from his other properties: the General Manager, Alexandre Favier, was formerly maître d’ at L’Oustau de Baumanière, and Chef Fabien Fage, who presides over the kitchen, used to be Second Chef at La Cabro d’Or.

    A few months later, the Spa Baumanière was created. In the immaculate white lounge, nothing but airy, sheer curtains, brushing against the dark wood floors and creating intimate alcoves, perfect for sleepy relaxation after a massage or beauty treatment.

    Finally, in December 2009, when the Boix-Vives family opened Le Strato Hotel in Courchevel 1850, Jean-André Charial was delighted to accept the offer of creating the restaurant menu.
