At the Gateway to Arles, the Alpilles Mountains

Much more than just a hotel, La Cabro d’Or is also a gastronomic restaurant, directed by Chef Michel Hulin. He and his team celebrate the flavors of southern France and the Mediterranean with an array of delicate, refined dishes that showcase such regional products as sea scallops, truffles and, of course, olive oil.
