Food and Drink

Inhouse Cuisine: Served in the orangery or garden, breakfasts are homemade and prepared using fresh local ingredients. Fruit salad, yogurts made from cows, sheep, soya or almond milk, a selection of freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries.
Since life in Provence revolves around the seasons, the land and its offerings of bounteous, delicious, sun-gorged produce, dinner or “table d’hôte” follow the seasons and is inspired by the succulent, perfumed fruit, vegetables and herbs from their own vegetable garden and local farmers. Simple flavoursome dishes bring you back to the authentic Provencal lifestyle, which has been one of the major influences of International Cuisine and are accompanied by a carefully curated selection of outstanding local wines. 

When Le Renard Argenté's own internationally renowned chef takes up his place in the kitchen, the price for the three-course dinner is €48 per person excluding drinks. In the case that the lady of the house prepares the diner the price is €40 per person excluding drinks. Should you wish to enjoy a gastronomic extravaganza prepared by Le Renard Argenté, the price varies between €75 and €150 depending on your choice of dishes.

Eating Out: From cosy local restaurants to more gastronomic affairs, there is a plethora of choice for eating out in this culinary region of Provence. The team at L'Atelier Renard Argenté will be very happy to make recommendations and reservations for you.
