Located about 25 miles northeast of Avignon, the 32-room Hotel Crillon le Brave is composed of seven ancient village houses, connected by bridges and secret courtyards. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, the charming hotel is the best kind of refuge: reflecting the history and character of a beautiful corner of the world. To claim one of the 20 rooms, you have to be one of the first 20 people each month to reserve a "20/20" room. Rooms for the following calendar month will be released on the 20th day of each month at 8 pm French time (that's 2 pm in NYC).
