A village within a village with its church, its plot and even the food truck that goes well, what such a concept could he look like?
We did well to make the trip. First to breathe the fresh air of the Alpilles. Then to understand how and why Eric John Flouresse contractor fell in love with this unique place. Sometimes, in certain cases, the hotel allows fair articulation of different passions. Eric John Flouresse is largely a love of architecture, art, vintage cars and furniture collection from 50 to 90 years drives him to refresh Hameau des Baux become “a catalyst of my business”. This miniature reproduction of a small village close to the Alpilles Paradou was a delightful playground. He knew how to exploit it gently into a hotel like no other.
Eric John Flouresse understood the changes in our world. He wants to offer more than any AirBnB warming. Hameau des Baux, one can mix the sports experiences, culinary, detox or learn to design. Passionate about interior design, he started looking for a space able to accommodate all its blows of heart Better to sublimate them in a box. This hotel thus becomes one of the largest showrooms in the world because all the furniture that has been meticulously unearthed are available for sale. It contains furniture from Hans Wegner, Ico Parisi, Guariche Pierre, Le Corbusier (to name a few). He partnered with antiquarian specialized in the 20th century, Emmanuelle Vidal. Objective: “to work on the collective memory.” Skillfully, surreptitiously, the hamlet of leases therefore adopts an ephemeral decoration. Who allows it to renew smoothly. Decoration as moving as this hotel is an extensive gallery of renowned artists: Klaus Meister and Patrick George exhibited in the cozy lounges open on cypress. We also like the shop that disgorged products both local but also unearthed in Stockholm or NYC.
Everything is quirky, generous, in very vintage style. A rare address to discover.
