Wonderfully attractive Provence bed & breakfast.
The story of Francois and Marie Pillet makes wonderful reading. Some years ago they followed their dream and left the commotion of Paris for the peace and beauty of Provence, with an initial idea of setting up a vineyard. Though this dream eventually fell through, they were too much in love with the countryside of Vaucluse to ever return to the big city. So they decided to have a go at setting up a bed and breakfast instead.
Now, Francois is an architect by profession and Marie a decorator, both people with great artistic sensibilities, so no ordinary B & B would suffice. There had to be a fresh twist, as it were, so they also decided to reintroduce saffron, an intense and beautiful spice, back to these lands.
They bought a place in Barroux, a beautiful and quiet village renowned for the Monastery of St Madeleine and after much work and attention to detail the L’Aube Safran was born, an elegant five-room bed and breakfast, surrounded by majestic pines and fruit trees, the cultivation of saffron and exquisite scenery of the Dentelles.
Marie was entrusted with decoration and given her natural talent, the result is spectacular. Rooms are modern, decorated in earthy pastel colours and superbly comfortable whilst the fantastic swimming pool takes full advantage of the spectacular scenery. It’s no surprise therefore that this lovely bed and breakfast has won a number of awards. Certainly, you might have even seen it on the cover of decorative magazines as the L’Aube Safran is very much in demand for its brand of beauty, particularly so as Francois and Marie are also such affable and urbane hosts.
And now, here’s the final word on the saffron. It takes over 200,000 flowers, all hand-plucked by the couple and friends, during the autumn harvest, to make up just one kilogram of the spice. So despite the paradisiacal nature of this part of the world, Francois and Marie work very hard at making it such a special place.

Styling, friendly, clean. The outside kitchen for shared use is great. It is really a secret place. The only negative during our stay is that they allowed a big (yearly returning) group to take all the rest of the rooms and dominate the pool and kitchen area. For the rest super

L' Aube Safran ist eine wirkliche Oase der Ruhe und des Friedens. Unglaublich schön gelegen inmitten der Natur, professionell restauriert und archtektonisch ausgestaltet, detailgenau und ästhetisch anspruchsvoll eingerichtet, ist diese Unterkunft wirklich etwas Besonderes. Ein Ort an dem man sich ungestört ausruhen und entspannen kann. Von wo man direkt quasi von der Haustür aus, schöne Wanderungen unternehmen und in der näheren Umgebung charmante kleine Orte entdecken kann. Die Besitzer sind ausgesprochrn herzlich und umsichtig. Das Frühstück sehr ausgesucht, lecker, vitaminreich und erfrischend, die Restaurantempfehlungen sehr gut. Alles in Allem wie ein kleiner kulinarischer Kururlaub, Kultururlaub inmitten einer bezaubernden, fruchtbaren und beeindruckenden Natur inmitten eines besonders schönen Teils der Provence. Wir werden sicher wiederkommen.

L’Aube Safran is a wonderful and magic place! The house is filled with the heart of Marie and Francois! Every detail in the house catches you with the spirit of the Provence! The pool is very inviting, you can also cook in the evenings by yourself. But there are also very nice Restaurants in the surrounding area. The breakfast is amazing, everything is served with so much love and tastes deliciously. It is definitely a place to relax, remember and to come back!!!

We adored staying in L'aube de Safran. Marie and François were perfect hosts. The hotel is placed in such a beautiful landscape and the hotel and its well-balanced, tasteful decoration fits perfectly. There are so many places to sit and to relaxe in the plot that we have to come back to enjoy them all.
