Domaine Clos de L’Ours – Provence Wine Hotel

Provence Wine Hotel – in deepest Provence, to the north of Brignoles (83 Var, Provence PACA) and the A8 Autoroute (la Provençal) is the Domaine Clos de l’Ours (domaine of the Bear!) vineyard and guest house in the Côtes de Provence wine region. This is away from the bustle of the Riviera coast and is a land of beauty and tranquility!

Clos d'Ours wineClos de l'OursSurrounded by its own vineyards and with an outdoor pool in season, the family-owned guest house offers 7 well-equipped, en suite rooms , some with terrace and views over the vines of the domaine. Le Clos de L’Ours offers a free visit to the wine domain and tasting of wines made on site – mainly rosés and white wine. A  warm welcome is assured from your hosts Michel, Fabianne and Emilie.

The vineyard, at the gateway of Haut-Var, is surrounded by a pine and oak forest, and is planted with 13 acres of vines in Côtes de Provence. The vineyard has operated according to organic principles since 2000. Hand-picked harvests preserve the grapes and contribute to the production of characterful wines which show the terroir.

This authentic vineyard, calm and peaceful, epitomizes Provence’s culture and landscape. Built in a green valley, it faces an ancient line of cypress and vines. In a convivial and relaxing atmosphere, you can enjoy the Provence way of life and you discover a place where the time goes slowly!

wineThe Cotes de Provence wine appellation covers  a large area of Provence between Marseille and Nice – and enjoys the benefit of great levels of sunshine. Mostly dry, fruity rosé wines, some whites and a little red.

Here the different cuvêes have bear-themed names such as “Grizzly” and “Nanook”! Some of the domaine’s wines feature in the  Guide Hachette des vins 2018 for their red “Le Chemin”2015!

The Clos de l’Ours is situated close to the village of Cotignac  between the Gorges du Verdon and the Côte d’Azur.
