Peaceful Provence: Working with a palette of ochre, white and sandy beige, architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte chose to echo the hues and shades of the pine-clad hills of Provence in his transformation of the 1950s buildings which make up La Réserve Ramatuelle Hotel-Spa, a member of Design Hotels. Woven rugs, and linen drapes are perfect dressings for light and airy spaces and add to the serene ambience. The hotel benefits from sweeping views over Provence and the Mediterranean. Central to La Réserve is the 1000m2 spa which is complete with indoor and outdoor pool, fitness studio, steam bath, sauna and solarium. There’s a restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine and a chef can be hired for private meals or to cater for parties. A doctor specialising in longevity heads a team of beauty, health and fitness consultants, but outdoors types may prefer to go trekking, kayaking or just play golf.
