Domaine de Fontenille

“An oasis of comfort and elegance surrounded by pristine nature and picturesque scenery - a wonderful experience accentuated by singular wines of character and expression of terroir.”

After successfully developing various luxury fashion brands, partners Frédéric Biousse and Guillaume Foucher decided to sell their shares in the company in order to devote their time and resources to resurrecting historic properties to former glory while connecting them to agricultural projects focused on organic and bio-dynamic practices. Domaine de Fontenille in Lubéron is their first. Along with a Rélais & Châteaux hotel,  the property has organically farmed vineyards, fields, and an organic garden that supplies the hotel’s two restaurants.
