Visit of the Domaine de la Baume in Provence, source of inspiration and refuge house of the painter Bernard Buffet. This Provencal house in Tourtour has become an exceptional hotel, ideal for a relaxing stay in the countryside.

Source of inspiration and ultimate refuge of the painter Bernard Buffet, the beauty has a name. The Domaine de la Baume in Tourtour illuminates the Haut-Var in vibrant colors. A naturally sophisticated accommodation to live in nuances.

The sky of Provence has its star. Signature full and loose BB initials, it is at the Domaine de la Baume that Bernard Buffet painted like no other place his inner world. Under the apparent triumph of the figure, the inhabited silence of his paintings integrates landscapes captured instinctively. At the foot of the village of Tourtour, alternating woods and valleys, terraces, caves and waterfalls, the Domaine de la Baume expresses a state of rare nature. In turn, simple garden, bed of boxwood in the French, kitchen garden, collections of roses, orchard and dotted olive grove stretch in the natural circus of the surrounding hills.

Jacinthe room, Mademoiselle Colombine or Annabel suite ... each praises the color. In this cozy and invigorating world, murals by Hervé Thibault, a lithography by Annabel Buffet in Carmen, stretched pieces of Burger canvas, canvas armchairs by Ian Sanderson, a Red Kiss bathroom, Flamingo ...

There, silence is king, only the leaves of old trees rustle in light wind. To stay there is to pick an authentic and preserved Provence. At the source of pleasure, the table is natural and the notion of hotel is erased to better live a farmland sip of sun. Cradled by forty hectares of exceptional nature, the moving Provencal building reinvents the codes of 18th century decoration. It is true that the Sibuet family has always had this happy intuition to find rare sites and renovate them with taste.

With this ocher so dear to Bernard Buffet, the large Provencal building and its colonnaded porch draw, under the light of the South, a changing facade.

The holiday route passes through their hotels and houses in Megève, Val-Thorens, Lyon, Ménerbes and Saint-Tropez. Ocher facades and olive green shutters, the Domaine de la Baume is today their last-born, and we love to find the memory of a warm family home. In the rich soil of this Haut Var where olive oil and vine are queen, where the truffles embalm and honey is adorned with all the virtues, the frank and subtle cuisine of François Martin and the sweet delicacies of Elodie the pastry cook share in the shade of tall trees. Picking it up will be "like home," they say with the natural modesty of their gourmet curriculum. A tasty, fair and elegant landscape cuisine, where a roasted pigeon and its artichokes, a caponata confit and a peach rosemary can become unforgettable ...

Caponata confit in casserole simmered by François Martin and served in the shade of tall trees.

In the cool of the evening, the cozy dining room extends a winter garden and open kitchen with geometry saturated with yellow and sparkling brass. Old rose, celadon green, sky, saffron ... spacious rooms to reading rooms, the color challenges the guests in search of pleasure. Just as Bernardard Buffet's workshop was the living force of brilliant realism. Climb on the floors, Little Owl, Iris, Green Butterfly, Sea Swallow ... the rooms have adopted names of paintings. Boudoir spirit here, bed skies and fabrics stretched from there ... Jocelyne Sibuet summons the great tradition of French publishing houses such as Braquenié, Charles Burger ... to compose a tender and flowery Provencal soul. The Annabel suite reminds us that the painter's muse was his model by inspiring the path of thought so dear to Bernard Buffet. Indefinitely, the talent, imagination and history of Provence crosses the Domaine de la Baume. From the meeting and friendship of Bernard Buffet with Jean Giono, to the reality of the water flowing in cascades and basins, harmony is emerging at the end of the road. The heated swimming pool, the aromatherapy spa and the Pure Altitude treatment huts nestling in the coolness of a natural cascading undergrowth can not deny it ... An eden without doubt, but more than ever inspired!
