OUSTAU DE BAUMANIÈRERelais & Châteaux
Perched in the heart of the most admirable land anyone could imagine, l’Oustau de Baumanière evokes the splendid village of Les Baux de Provence where rough rocks fringed with the fine 13th century homes of the genuine fortress.
At midway between the land of Cézanne and Van Gogh, the ferias of Picasso and the Romanesque monasteries, l’Oustau opened its doors in 1946 and never fell to please its visitors. Jean-André Charial took over his grand father’s work and after a tour of France of «Les grands chefs», he revisited classics among classics without giving away his heritage: the famous poached red mullet with a basil sauce or the leg of lamb «en croûte».
Being also a winemaker, Mr. Charial’s wine cellar is a wide collection of prestigious wines and a selection of Provence wine makers. As for the hotel it has been renewed in a contemporary way by famous architects and designers and supervised by Mrs Charial herself.
