Coquillade Provence
Provence, France


Coquillade Provence is a small village that encapsulates the charm and atmosphere of Provence, surrounded by 42 hectares of vineyards and olive groves, forests and lavender fields in the heart of the Luberon National Park.

The name Coquillade is a synonym for formidable migratory birds that seek an exclusive home in the heart of Provence every year.

Coquillade is not only known for its scenic views of the Luberon, vineyard, lavender fields and excellent cuisine but also for being a paradise for cyclists.

The property has achieved global acclaim, securing titles such as France’s best resort by Travel + Leisure, five-star recognition in Forbes Travel Guide as well as receiving the prestigious, new two-key distinction from Michelin Guide this year.

History and Domaine de la Coquillade

According to legend, the origins of Domaine de la Coquillade date back to the 11th century, when Cistercian monks from Sénanque Abbey built the core of this authentic Provençal village.

The first vine was planted two centuries later, laying a foundation for the winery — and a legacy that has endured for generations, rich in tradition yet also marked by vibrant modern spirit.

After purchasing the estate in 2006, Andy Rihs, an avowed fan of Provence, began transforming the hotel and vineyard of the old bastide into a luxurious retreat.

Following his passing in 2018, sons Oliver and Tobias Rihs took over the winery with a clear goal: to continue the valuable family legacy, with biodynamics and a clear focus on sustainability, and knowing full well that this is a journey that never ends.

Rooms and Suites

Coquillade Provence features 69 rooms including connecting options and family suites. Further, the property boasts a private Pool Suite—part of a five-bedroom villa—which can also be fully rented as a stand-alone home ideal for families and small groups, or the brand’s pièce de resistance, the Bastide Les Vallats, a private villa located 20 minutes from the property and can fit up to 14 guests in seven bedrooms.
