The Luxury Perched on a hillside near the historic heart of Provences enchanting capital, the opulent La Villa Gallici welcomes guests to a quiet street, decked each fall with orange- and yellow-hued cypress and plane trees. During this season the wine harvests begin in nearby vineyards like Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The villas rooms bear sumptuous furnishings and fabrics; many include claw-foot bathtubs and private balconies.
