Hotel la Coquillade is a luxury 5 star hotel located in the heart of the Luberon. It invites you to enjoy a special time in surroundings offering luxury, tranquillity and serenity. The property unveils a hamlet of six residences with sumptuously decorated rooms and suites, the oldest of which is from the eleventh century.

Lovers of nature and open spaces will be filled with the magic of the site. From the gardens, terraces and pool, the view of the Luberon, Monts de Vaucluse and Mont Ventoux is exceptional.

Facing the Luberon, on one of the hills of the Monts de Vaucluse, La Coquillade Provence has been home to generations of wine producers dating back to the thirteenth century. The property is a crossing point for migratory birds and the charming hotel gets its name from the Provençal word for crested lark, “Couquihado.”

The hamlet was built on a hill encircled by vineyards over a period of centuries. It was acquired in 2007 by Andreas Rihs, entrepreneur and Swiss financier, and has undergone major construction and restoration. Managers Carmen and Werner Wunderli, Swiss by origin but Provençal at heart, have put all their energy into realizing this ambitious project, which is now complete. Now in its fourth year of existence, the hotel offers high-quality service in an exceptional environment.

Hotel la Coquillade Provence has been restored with respect for the authenticity of the site and using only quality materials. Sobriety and sophistication are the spirit of the property.

While offering the maximum level of comfort to its guests with modern and aesthetic amenities, La Coquillade has chosen to respect the environment: the main source of the property’s energy is geothermal, combined with solar energy and natural gas. Renewable energy, eco-products, recycling of water for use in the garden, waste sorting... many environmental policies have been put into effect to obtain the European "Ecolabel.”
