Difficult to imagine that 10 years ago, there were only fields of olive and almond trees here… Le Hameau des Baux is a singular place nestled at the foot of the Alpilles, in the Bouches-du-Rhône department, composed of a farmhouse and its small mazets wonderfully integrated into an authentic Mediterranean landscape. A Provencal setting on five hectares of unspoiled nature, the Hameau des Baux is a unique hotel concept that revisits traditional codes of luxury. Acquired in 2013 by Eric-Jean Floureusse, entrepreneur and lover of arts and design, the place has been treated to the smallest detail both in terms of decoration and in the design of its outdoor spaces.

Make way for relaxation in the orchard!


Sophie Guivarc'h For Romain, responsible for the green spaces of the Hameau des Baux, one watchword: "Preserve the original secular agricultural landscape, its olive grove and its almond orchard and marry it with species adapted to the climate Mediterranean, drought tolerant. "A non-ostentatious decor, lush in its simplicity. Nature here seems to regain its rights, to flourish while being carefully controlled.
