The main reason to come to this minuscule hamlet, named after France’s most notable soldier hero of the 16th century, is to stay or dine at its hotel, the Hostellerie de Crillon-le-Brave. But it’s also pleasant—perched on a knoll in a valley shielded by Mont Ventoux, with the craggy hills of the Dentelles in one direction and the hills of the Luberon in another. Today the village still doesn’t have even a boulangerie (bakery), let alone a souvenir boutique. The village makes a good base camp for exploring the region if you can afford to stay at the hotel; with no other commercial establishments in the village, and little more to visit than a tiny music-box museum and an ocher quarry, you’re a captive audience.
