The Chef

Jimmy Coutel will take over the reins of the kitchens from  the 2015 season.

This young chef is no stranger to our beautiful region and understands the rich palate of flavours that form the bedrock of its cuisine.
Indeed he has worked with chefs like Philippe Troncy at L'Arbousier in Saint-Raphaël, and spent several years alongside Thierry Thiercellin at the Villa Belrose.

His recipes are rooted in Mediterranean and Provencal traditions and reflect to perfection the spirit of the location, authenticity, respect for nature and local produce are key phrases on his menus which follow the seasons.
Jimmy Coutel highlights local produce and favours organic fruit and vegetables from the estate’s kitchen garden.

His cuisine celebrates nature, offering gourmets an haute cuisine port of call surrounded by hundred-year-old palms and lush green vegetation.
On balmy summer evenings, the whole of Provence comes together on your plate.

His culinary skills, and recipes have been awarded by the guide "Gault & Millau" 2016 with 3 toques, a mark of 15/20 and a personnal distinction of "Grand de demain".
