A Provençal treasure nestled in the Plaine des Maures National Nature Reserve, Maison Mirabeau has opened its doors to its new Domaine. With their headquarters and beautiful boutique in the quaint town of Cotignac, founders Jeany and Stephen Cronk have been working tirelessly to open up their very own vineyard. With the aim to encompass regenerative farming, Domaine Mirabeau is a fully functional farm, complete with animals that all play a key part in our ecosystem. The impressive 20-hectare estate also offers luxury accommodation, with two fashionably renovated farmhouses, hosting up to 26 guests.
Located 13km from the historic village of La Garde-Freinet and in the commune of the Golfe de Saint-Tropez, Domaine Mirabeau is a just an hour from Nice airport and an hour-and-a-quart
er from Marseille, ideally situated for international travel and exploring the French Riviera. Nestling in a secluded section of the Plaine des Maures National Nature Reserve, its unique position means it’s also close to Provence’s stunning villages, idyllic countryside and coastline.
“We are deeply committed to the environment and finding a way to produce leading wines whilst also farming in a way that respects and preserves the surrounding ecosystem.”
Stephen & Jeany Cronk, Founders, Maison Mirabeau
Domaine Mirabeau falls within the newly created subregion within the Côtes de Provence AOC, Notre Dame des Anges. The terroir covers 3,900 hectares of vineyards interwoven within the landscape of umbrella pines, cork oak trees and chestnut groves typical of the Plaine des Maures, an ecosystem rich in fauna and flora.
La Réserve, their first cuvée from Domaine Mirabeau, is a limited edition, complex gastronomic rosé wine. With 50% of profits supporting Stephen’s Regenerative Viticulture Foundation, a platform for information and research, La Réserve marks their pioneering commitment to a future of regenerative farming.
The domaine has a beautiful ‘potager’ walled vegetable garden, where we’re growing organic vegetables, salads and herbs to offer our guests. They are also reducing our “Food Miles” by buying produce that comes from the local community, when it is in season rather than food that has travelled many miles. They've fostered relationships with local suppliers and farmers; butchers, cheese-makers and fishmongers committed to using sustainably sourced ingredients from Provence.
STAY AT DOMAINE MIRABEAU
There are two charming villas to rent on Domaine Mirabeau, both perfect for families or groups of friends looking to escape busy lives and relax, whilst exploring everything Provence has to offer. Staying at Domaine Mirabeau is also a great way to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into life on our Domaine. The villas are set a few hundred metres apart, and are out of sight of one another, giving guests maximum privacy. For family occasions or small events, there is the option to rent both villas together, with a maximum capacity of 26 people.
A 200-year-old seven-bedroom villa with its own private gardens, terraces and pool. Jeany personally oversaw the renovations and interior design in 2020 to an exceptionally high spec, with all new bathrooms, a new kitchen and two suites, whilst carefully curating the interior design to reflect life in Provence.
Le Mas Farmhouse
A charming five-bedroom farmhouse, with its own private entrance, gardens, terraces, balcony and pool. All rooms are ensuite, and the villa has two family rooms, so can sleep up to 12 people.
