In the centre of the Domaine de Murtoli, an impressive 2 500 hectare property larger than Monaco, this sizeable building built in 2013 looks like a weathered old farmhouse. The fish are caught opposite the estate, the saffron is supplied by the neighbour, the vegetables and herbs come from the garden

With a terrace overlooking the golf course and fabulous wine cellars, the large, inviting dining room with arches and monumental fireplaces serves chic but rustic cuisine, all year round. However, our favourite spot to dine is in the terrace, enveloped by trees.

Must-try dishes

  • Smoked cape prawns with immortelle wood in emulsified broth
  • Grilled veal with fig and candied onion and honey
  • Hazelnut Marigny with Nepita honey sorbet
