A few minutes from Avignon, in the heart of the medieval town of Villeneuve les Avignon, the hotel restaurant Le Prieuré Baumanière welcomes you to an authentic 14th century priory.
This hotel in Villeneuve les Avignon has been entirely rethought out by Geneviève and Jean-André Charial, proprietors of Baumanière les Baux-de-Provence and its two restaurants: l'Oustau de Baumanière and Cabro d’Or.
The priory's old walls of this hotel in Villeneuve les Avignon now surround resolutely contemporary furniture and together they form a warm and convivial ensemble.
With this breath of modernity, this former family boarding house for painters will again make you dream.
As for the cuisine, Fabien Fage, young 33 year old chef from Arles, former second chef at the Cabro d'Or, gained his experience from the best of them : Alain Passard, Bernard Loiseau and Alain Ducasse.
His menus skillfully combine his Provençal roots with that of his new home, Languedoc or more precisely the Gard.
Examples of this inspired cuisine:
The grilled langoustines in olive oil, with a salad of crunchy fresh vegetables, octopus and a shellfish sauce, or even the John Dory filet grilled in semi-salted butter, Provençal artichokes, a few small cuttlefish in tasty condiments.
All served in a dining room clad all in white, or when weather is good, in the garden protected from the sun and wind by walls of wisteria.
