Arles, a city with a rich history
At the foot of the Alpilles and at the doorstep of the Camargue with its plains and rich wetlands, the city of Arles has an exceptional location. This strategic position has been exploited through the ages, with the first traces of human occupation pre-dating the founding of Marseille by the Greeks in 600 BC. The grandeur of Arles occurred during the Roman era. Numerous remarkable remains from that period are the basis for the city’s cultural reputation, attracting tens of thousands of visitors annually.
Close to Arles, les Baux de Provence
Just a few minutes from Arles you will find one of the jewels of Provence: the village of Les Baux de Provence. Perched on a limestone cliff, it dominates the valley of Les Baux with its fairytale scenery. This is where La Cabro d’Or welcomes its guests, complementing the magical setting with elegance and simplicity. This former Provencal farmhouse is nestled in a shaded 5-acre park. In the early 1960’s it was transformed into a five-star hotel by the owners of the Maisons de Baumanière, who were already established in Les Baux de Provence with l’Oustau de Baumanière.
A hotel designed to please
Geneviève et Jean-André Charial, owners of the Maisons de Baumanière say of La Cabro d’Or that it was “born to please, that it inspires a holiday feeling, even when the purpose is a business meeting.” And, to complement this pleasure, the luxury hotel has a gastronomic restaurant, where chef Michel Hulin shares his culinary passion. The Maisons de Baumanière also offer a Spa, supplementing comfort and gastronomy with beauty treatments for the body, face and spirit that come from around the world. Of note is the signature Baumanière treatment that pays tribute to the secrets of Provence for a multi-sensory escape.
