What’s your travel style? Do you prefer luxurious accommodations and fine dining? Then you’ll love Backroads’ luxury trips designed for a day of adventure followed by relaxation at premiere inns and refueling in gourmet restaurants.
Our Provence Biking Trip, for example, includes two nights at Crillon le Brave, a “relaxed and informal refuge” that’s also a Relais & Châteaux member. This hotel is located about 25 miles northeast of Avignon at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains and Mont Ventoux. Crillon le Brave is a collection of beautiful lodges that once served as a presbytery, stables and a school. With 24 rooms and 8 suites, this charming and historic hotel offers stunning views from each room. Bedrooms feature crisp Italian linens by Frette and luxurious bathrooms, as well as Bose Wave systems with iPod connectors. Conde Nast Traveler says this is “easily the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in.”
Crillon le Brave offers two restaurants, each serving high quality, locally-sourced fresh ingredients prepared and served by a team of experts who work together to ensure your food and wine is paired perfectly.
A heated outdoor pool makes a wonderful place to relax after a day on the bike. Other amenities and services include a mini-spa for full body, hot stone massages and facials, a boules court, laptops for loan with complimentary high speed Internet access and a selection of English daily newspapers. They also offer a babysitting service and a special menu for children. What more could you ask for?
We believe all of our Premiere Inn Trips offer the perfect blend of gracious hospitality and authentic regional flair. In addition to hotels that members of Relais & Châteaux, we also frequent Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and accommodations that have won acclaim from the likes of Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report, Condé Nast Traveler and Travel+Leisure.
When it comes to distinguished dining, all of the Premiere Inns we frequent work hard to ensure you enjoy authentic and memorable meals. These establishments are regularly featured in Gourmet and Wine Country magazines, and often boast Michelin stars.
