Take your vacation off the grid at Domaine de Manville. Of course, this former farming estate

18-hole golf course? Like a true home, the 30 contemporary rooms and suites vary in feel and
theme; guests in the nine villas have their own plunge pool and can secure the services of a
private chef or butler. Scents of natural Provençal essences pervade the impressive spa;
meals to linger over are made with fresh produce grown on the estate.

cart rental) or $100 value dining credit per
