25 minutes from Aix en Provence and 45 minutes from Marseille , in the small village of Rognes , a 19th century mansion is transformed into a bourgeois country house: Le Clos des Merveilles . Behind the facade of this former school of brothers, appears a magnificent garden adorned with a thousand and one plants, and a masterful swimming pool , perfect for a moment of relaxation for two or with the family.
Entirely restored and rehabilitated, this village house, all in authenticity and charm, offers three comfortable guest rooms , each decorated in a unique way.

It was chance that led us to Rognes. We were looking, Sylvain and I (Sophie), for a place conducive to serenity and contemplation after a hectic Parisian life. Originally from Lambesc a few kilometers away, Sylvain was keen to find the sun and Provence. I naturally agreed to leave my hometown for this magnificent region where the sun shines 300 days a year and where time seems to stand still.
The rooms: exotic and refined comfort
Each bed and breakfast invites you into its own universe. Choose…
- The Marrakech room for a dip in the colors of the Majorelle gardens
- The Adelaïde room, in homage to the donor of the house which became a school, for a very pleasant stay
- The Colibri room faithful to the eponymous legend in a tropical atmosphere, with private terrace
The three guest rooms are also accessible from the outside, to preserve everyone’s independence.
The house: heritage and history
In the heart of Provence, our guest house “Le Clos des Merveilles” welcomes you to a place steeped in history .
This building, built at the end of the 18th century, was then the property of Miss Adelaïde Jouve-Chabbert. She will donate it to the village to allow the poor children of Rognes to receive an education. The building then becomes a school for brothers which will be open for nearly 60 years. Today, Le Clos des Merveilles is an intimate address , typically Provençal, which invites you to relax.
The Garden: an ode to contemplation
Olive trees, strawberry trees, boxwood, cypresses, coronillas, lilacs, old roses, agapanthus, multicolored irises, hydrangeas, violets… Beyond a guest house, the Clos des Merveilles is a typical Provençal garden built in terraces , which reveals a variety of impressive Mediterranean plants and essences.
Adorned with a large stone staircase and a pretty old well, this confidential garden, sheltered from view, offers multiple points of view over the roofs of the village of Rognes, facing the Luberon mountains and Mont Ventoux .
The table: generosity and local dishes
During your stay in Provence, we will serve you a generous breakfast with local or homemade products : hot drinks, fruit juices and jams, pastries, various breads, goat cheese from the farm, homemade yogurts, seasonal fruits…
