This hotel at the top of the tiny village of Crillon le Brave - Crillon was supposedly the biggest hero of France during the 16th century, so I guess he was brave - consists of several old stone buildings and a dining terrace with a sweeping view of the countryside. We were fortunate to get a suite with much the same view. The furnishing were modern with a large sitting room and bath with walk in shower. There are two dining options - the main place being the terrace, but there is also "Bistrot 40K" just below it and also on a terrace with view which derives its name from the fact that they only serve food derived from a max 40 km diameter from the village. It was closed our first night there and our dinner at the main dining room was so good that we elected to eat there again the second night, but I'm sure the bistrot cuisine would be excellent as well. Crillon le Brave is a bit away from the main "sights" of Provence, but we had a car and enjoy travelling back roads to small villages, so it worked perfectly for us.
