From European Grand Tour box sets to New York Restaurant Week

The Domaine de la Baume opened yesterday in rural Provence, an hour's drive from St-Tropez. The former home of Expressionist painter Bernard Buffet has been converted into a gorgeous 15-room hotel, surrounded by manicured gardens, an orangery and olive groves. There's a restaurant by chef François Martin, plus yoga, horse-riding and cooking classes (domaine-delabaume.com).
