In Franceís Provence region, November is known for truffle season, olive harvesting, kayaking on the Sorgue River and walking through the countryside taking in scents of lavender, sage and rosemary. Itís also a time to save at Hotel Crillon le Brave, when each of the hotelís buildings, dating to the 16th and 17th centuries, is a flat rate of 150 Euros, roughly $200 depending on exchange rate when you book. Hotel officials said the rate saves up to 80 percent of the norm.
The hotelís property consists of seven restored stone houses, linked by bridges, cobblestone walkways and courtyards. There are 23 rooms, seven suites and a two-bedroom house. The area is known for the Carpentras outdoor market, many local vineyards and shopping at Provenceís antique capital, Sur La Sorgue. Crillon le Brave is open Wednesday through Sunday in November, and room categories depend on availability upon booking. A two-night minimum is required.
