Restaurant and hotel in the country. As a result of the merger of La Cabro d’Or and L’Oustau de Baumanière, Baumanière has become the epitome of Mediterranean art of living in a magical place. Appreciated by personalities from the political and the media world, this domain was founded by Raymond Thuillier, the "historical monument" of French gastronomy according to Gault et Millau. In 1969, Jean-André Charial took over from his grandfather as the head Chef, a position he held with maestria until today. This respected Chef is now no longer in the kitchens but managing the domaine. Baumanière remains a unique place, nestled in the Baux-de-Provence rocky outcrops. It encompasses five buildings surrounded by Mediterranean gardens: the L’Oustau, the historical main house, La Guigou, a Provençal farmhouse, the 18th-century manor, and finally Carita and Flora, two country abodes. There are also two gourmet restaurants, the Oustau de Baumanière—an institution where you can appreciate the refined, subtle, and creative cuisine of the chef—and La Cabro d'Or, a Provencal restaurant. The estate also has a spa, three outdoor pools, and a tennis court. ... Learn moreless
