After a whole summer of staying in London with no travelling at all – yes, I had a great reason not to as my boyfriend and I have been putting all our time into our new flat – it’s so exciting! But at the same time I needed some time off, especially after the whole fashion month madness too! Then, voilà, Hotel Crillon Le Brave in Provence was great timing.

I was invited to stay for 3 days in this gorgeous hotel in the beautiful setting of Provence with two other bloggers: Lucyfrom Fashion Me Now and Juliafrom Stylonylon.

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the lovely host Lucy from Hotel Crillon Le Brave, who invited us to a beautiful lunch on the terrace. I had a soup to warm up followed by duck as a main, not to forget and most importantly, creme brûlée for dessert – one of my faves!

Belly full and already amazingly welcomed to the hotel, we checked into our rooms. Everyone had a different and unique place in the cute petit village from hotel Crillon Le Brave. The lovely Julien gave us a tour and mentioned my room was one of his faves (just to me, of course!) because of the bath that stands beautifully in the middle of the room! We walked into this stunning chamber and he pointed to the welcoming card and wine waiting for me!

Robe on, and off I went to explore the newly refurbished Spa with Bamford products. As soon as you walk in, the fresh smell of eucalyptus is so welcoming! I was then taken to the room which looked impeccable and very cosy. I was asked which of the Bamford oils I preferred and I chose the camomile scent… One hour full body massage and I was in heaven! I was so tired that I slept halfway through…

After feeling refreshed and brand new, we had some aperitifs at the hotel bar area – luckily we even got to see the sunset! Followed by dinner in their Michelin starred restaurant which was divine (I was always looking forward to the cheese and grapes course – I’m already craving it like crazy!) such a great way to end day 1!

Hotel Crillon Le Brave is truly magical, I woke up the next day and peeked through the window to see the sun rising, a truly stunning view. Got ready for another day and had the most delicious breakfast on the terrace!

This was the part of the itinerary that I was looking forward the most… To cycle through the village and a pit stop in a pink quarry for a picnic! (More food – seriously I came back to London rolling after all the fromage and baguette, no kidding!). I don’t get to cycle enough in London and it’s one of my favourite outdoor activities…my boyfriend says I’m crazy on a bike so he is too scared of cycling with me in town!

Back to the hotel at around 2pm and off we went to enjoy a free afternoon by the pool. I was in serious need of vitamin D and a bit of sun since I haven’t been anywhere over the summer, I felt almost like Casper the ghost!

Next on the agenda was wine tasting in the hotel. I can say now that while I’m mastering the skills of sipping the wine, I still don’t get much the differences…but for sure know how to pretend that I do :)

The following day was time to say goodbye, pack up our bags and go. Such a hard thing to let go! I enjoyed a last amazing bath in the hotel and had a power breakie to go.

The day didn’t wake up as beautiful – it was in tears because we were leaving, I’m sure! Off we went to explore L’Isle Sur le Sorgue antique market and to have an amazing lunch at Le Jardin du Quai, a must go to when visiting Provence!

Thank you Crillon Le Brave for having me, it was such an unforgettable experience! Hope to be back very soon!
