La Belugue was founded in 2016 by French-American couple Kelly Goehler and Philippe Pellegrin. The pair met serendipitously as expats in Singapore where travel, nature, and culinary adventures quickly became shared passions. Upon return to Philippe’s homeland, the duo discovered their 18th century Luberon farmhouse and knew it was the ideal location to nurture their mutual passions. It would also serve as the perfect venue for Kelly to share the southern hospitality instilled during her Tennessee youth with tourists looking to explore picturesque Provence. As a graduate of Gastronomicom Culinary School in France and a certified yoga instructor, Kelly incorporates these skills into La Belugue’s immersive retreats and Provençal cooking classes.
La Belugue features three welcoming guest rooms, each beautifully decorated with Provençal charm and equipped with modern amenities for a comfortable stay. Guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast made from local ingredients, served on the sunny terrace overlooking breathtaking vineyards.
