A luxury hotel

On a 3 hectare estate in a green and welcoming nature, discover Lou Calen. In the company of the cicada song, in the shade of the olive trees and under the Provencal sun, stay in the main bastide or one of its annexes. Choose the charming room or suite of your dreams, among which you will find :

  • Le Pigeonnier. This exceptional suite is built on three floors with a beautiful spiral staircase in the center. The wood and stone give the place a magical atmosphere accentuated by the view of the gardens and the cliff.

Immersive experiences in Provence

Lou Calen offers you to experience the art of living in Provence with your 5 senses.

Start your immersion with interesting gustatory discoveries:
