Private events

Lou Calen is the perfect setting for your private events and special gatherings. Whether for a wedding, a baptism or a family reunion, the estate offers a magical venue in a location that promises the very essence of Provençal charm. Spread across three hectares of nature, you’ll find secret corners full of charm and mysteries that slowly reveal themselves: an ancient well, a wrought iron table in the shade of a berry tree, a vine pergola loaded with grapes, an old rambling Provençal ruin. Lou Calen is bursting with potential for your special occasion.

Jardin Secret Restaurant

Faithful to the luxury and charm of Lou Calen, the hotel estate’s main restaurant awaits. Behind the doors of a 200-year-old Provençal country house the menu expands beyond the classic codes of gastronomy with its generous dishes crafted by our chef, Benoît Witz. The Jardin Secret restaurant was recently awarded a Michelin Green Star for its action towards eco-responsible cuisine.
