“Roman remains at the heart of the capital of black truffles”
Maître de Maison
- David and Priscilla Mollicone
2,000 years ago, under the reign of the Roman Emperor Augustus, the Celtic Tricastins tribe settled in the Provencal Drôme region, more specifically in Augusta Tricastinorum, today known as Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux. The Villa Augusta retains the feel of the Roman era in its golden ochre facade. The lights, colours and fragrances are redolent of an antique Roman tavern. With its box tree garden and the 200 year-old cedar tree, Villa Augusta, a master’s residence with its simple but elegant Provencal interiors, is conducive to total relaxation. The dishes with Southern accents include fresh seasonal products and are inspired by the travelling of the chef around the world.
