Our country hotel has an eventful past. In the 2nd century BC, today’s Romantikhotel was used as an oil mill. Afterwards, it served as a country residence for a wealthy patrician from the – then Roman – town of Vasio (today Vaison-la-Romaine). The house eventually became the seat of the Order of the Temple and part of the Commanderie of Roaix. According to legend, Emperor Barbarossa stayed here for a few days before being crowned King of Burgundy in Arles. In the 14th and 15th centuries, the house was used as a plague hospital. At times it was the property of the popes of Avignon and the counts of Toulouse. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the domaine was a farm.
Privately owned by the current host, the Domaine La Tulisse was extensively restored between 1980 and 1996 before being converted into a hotel in 2016. When you stroll through the park, you will encounter history at every turn: flint building structures, column remains, amphorae and ceramic and terracotta vessels adorn the greenery. The largest pre-Christian masonry deep well in France was also found in the estate’s park.
