The chef


The Michelin star shines again at Le Prieuré-Baumanière, 6 months after the Chef’s arrival!

“For me, cooking is a show, like theater; guests should say ‘wow!’. I want to offer a cuisine that resembles me: daring, personal, and very refined. Flavors where acidity is marked, crunchiness without too much sugar, land-sea dishes where the journey of the taste buds also involves surprising combinations, precision in pairings, cooking, balances, and sauces.
The goal is to bring a renewal while keeping the DNA of Baumanière: Provence…”

It’s done! On Monday, March 18th, the Michelin Guide awarded him a star, restoring its nobility to Le Prieuré Baumanière.

Christophe Chiavola offers an instinctive, refined, and seasonal cuisine, saying he is “at the service of nature.”
In his dishes, you will find Mediterranean and floral notes with a touch of acidity, original and surprising flavor combinations, all while preserving the authenticity of the product and the terroir.

Christophe Chiavola, our Chef propose an instinctive, refined and seasonal cuisine… with Mediterranean and floral notes and a touch of acidity.

Lunch in a Most Charming Setting

We stopped here for lunch. We were delighted by the green garden setting and the sound of cicadas. A truly charming setting and very Provence atmosphere… A real pleasure. As for the food, quality dishes well prepared. Discreet and kind staff. We were delighted with this unplanned stop.

A Tasting Dinner for a Well-Deserved Retirement!

Very professional welcome, high-quality room, a restaurant that met our expectations to surprise us with a 5-step discovery menu where we let ourselves be guided to savor each dish delicately. A real treat for our taste buds in the midst of a very pleasant garden. I recommend this very well-located establishment in the heart of Villeneuve les Avignon. A town worth visiting. To discover for a little getaway!

Superb Experience

Excellent restaurant in a beautiful setting, well above one star. The place is magnificent, the staff very professional and attentive.
