High on a hilltop overlooking the Parc du Luberon sits a five-star hotel surrounded by vineyards and fields of lavender. But Coquillade Village is much more than just a luxury hotel, thanks to the many and varied sports that can be practiced there.

Le bien-être personnel par le sport, comme ici le yoga ou le vélo, dans un site enchanteur.
In addition to its 68 rooms and suites, three restaurants and bars, prize-winning 1500 m2 spa and famous ‘Aureto’ vineyard, Coquillade Village is also home to an exclusive cycling centre, and offers guests a fabulous setting in which to prepare and train for sports activities. The Cycling Centre has loads of high-performance racing bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes and children’s bicycles from the best manufacturers (BMC, Stromer, etc.). It also has all the necessary equipment and accessories. All guests need to do is hop on a bike, and they are ready to take off for customised guided tours to discover the vineyards, hilltop villages, ochre landscapes, and mountain biking trails of Provence. For those who like extreme sports, Coquillade organises an exclusive ascension of Mont Ventoux, known as La Cinglée (literally, ‘the Crazy One’) that takes in three sides of the mountain and chalks up 4,400 m of climbing.
But there is more to Coquillade Village than cycling. The hotel sponsors automobile racing and also has a heated, semi-olympic outdoor pool and specific triathlon training programmes. Finally, its Fitness Centre offers a wide range of relaxing and energising activities, coaches, and cutting-edge Technogym equipment, to help guests attain their personal well-being objectives.
