An amazing estate with vineyards and a winery immersed in a private forest
Hidden away in Provence, la Verrière is a private estate comprising a medieval priory and winery surrounded by its own vineyard and 350 acres of lush private forest in the heart of a UNESCO biosphere. The tranquil environment offers the perfect stage for total relaxation.
The Priory, having been restored to the highest standards of luxury and comfort with great regard for architectural harmony and historical authenticity, can accommodate up to fourteen guests (and extra children on request) in its four suites and three luxury bedrooms. Guests can unwind and enjoy La Verrière’s extensive facilities: relax in large communal spaces and cool off in the heated infinity pool overlooking the vineyard; play tennis or unwind in the Jacuzzi; live the Provençal life with a game of pétanque or wake up with a sunrise yoga session in their private gym. Bikes are available for exploring the area along the numerous biking and hiking trails. There is also a helicopter landing pad and a wine-tasting room, ideal for hosting events for wine lovers.
Guests will be welcomed by dedicated members of staff with experience in both oenology and hospitality. A head chef, house manager and a personal butler will ensure the highest level of service, privacy and enjoyment.
La Verrière prides itself on maintaining a sustainable environment: fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown in the garden, and olive oil and honey are produced on the property. La Verrière raises its own sheep and guests can drink the water from its two mountain springs

It is situated above Crestet, an unspoiled medieval hilltop village and is a few minutes’ drive from the bustling Provençal market town of Vaison-la-Romaine and is 45 minutes north-east of Avignon.
Things to do
Tour the Papal Palace in Avignon and the famous Jewish landmarks in Carpentras. Raid the chic shops in Aix-en-Provence; ride bareback in the Camargue, the cowboy region of France. Climb the castle ruins in Les Baux, collect the pottery of Dieu-le-Fit and the olives and olive oils of Nyons. Drink your way down the Route des Vins or breathe the perfumes of the Route de La Lavande. Discover the antique dealers of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and the deco destinations of Lubéron, all less than two hours away. We can assist you in planning day trips to any of these places.
Wine enthusiasts should not miss the oenologically significant villages of Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaume de Venise. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is not much further afield. We can propose visits to top-notch private vineyards in the area, such as Domaine de Santa Duc, Domaine de Mourchon and Domaine de Saint-Amand.
