Le Clair de la Plume


Sleep in deliciously elegant rooms, feast on heavenly patisseries in the garden restaurant, explore picture-perfect villages... A real treat


15 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Set in a sea of lavender, laden with literature, history and flowers, Grignan is a treat of a little town. So is this welcoming hotel within its sheltering walls (some rooms are in another charming house 100m away). Push the heavy gates of the pink maison de maître onto a special place. Jean-Luc Valadeau has created a warm hospitable “home with all the comforts of a hotel”. He and his staff are a community, ushering you through deliciously elegant rooms where antique pieces catch your eye, and the small terraced garden has a natural pool and a lovely view over the town. Peaceful bedrooms are divided between the main and the second house. A combination of great taste and authenticity mixes Louis Philippe wardrobes, country-style wicker, luxurious bathrooms, washed or ragged walls, original tiles and shining oak planks. After a generous breakfast, walk into town or borrow bikes and explore the picture-perfect villages. Then return to the organic garden restaurant for exotic selections of teas and mouthwatering pâtisseries among the roses or a delectable dinner in one of the restaurants.
