Occupied by the Greeks in the 5th century BC, the Provencal coast and inland regions have witnessed a succession of populations attracted by a generous land and the proximity and abundance of the Mediterranean Sea. Germanic tribes settled in the Rhone Valley during the early Middle Ages. The region suffered recurrent raids by Saracens in the 9th century. A succession of various civilizations over the centuries has contributed to the richness and diversity of today’s Provence, making it one of the most beautiful regions of France. As one jewel among many, the village of Les Baux de Provence, built on a limestone cliff, towers over the Les Baux valley with the Alpilles mountains as its backdrop.
Les Baux de Provence in the heart of the Alpilles
Over its long history, since 6000 BC, numerous peoples coveted Les Baux de Provence, and traces of these occupations can be found all around and within the village. To this day the village has preserved its traditional Provencal appeal, continuing to attract visitors from near and far. It is this setting, rich with history, that serves as the backdrop for the 5-star hotel La Cabro d’Or, an authentic Provencal farmhouse transformed into a hotel in 1961. In addition to elegant and welcoming rooms and suites, La Cabro d’Or offers a gastronomic restaurant, and guests have access to the Spa Baumanière for personalized relaxing and energizing treatments.
5-Star rooms and suites
There are thirteen 5-star rooms in La Cabro d’Or, divided into two categories: classic and superior. The hotel also offers twelve suites, including seven junior suites. Each expresses elegance and modernity, with simple and subdued Provencal charm, a sense of refinement without excessive flourishes. Most rooms have access to private terraces or gardens, with floral plantings that correspond to each season, blending harmoniously with the hotel and its surrounding limestone cliffs.
