Arnaud Donckele

The youngest chef awarded three stars by the coveted Michelin Guide, Arnaud Donckele indulges guests in a magical immersion into his gustatory universe.

Grandson of Normandy farmers and son of a gastronomy-loving fine butcher and traiteur, Arnaud’s palate is initiated to the pleasures of the table at an early age. Given « carte blanche » upon his arrival at la Vague d’Or in 2005, he devotes his creative freedom to explore the Provence countryside.

With masterful technique and a blossoming imagination, the cuisine of Arnaud Donckele gives guests a peek into Provence, flirting with the subtle flavours of sun-ripened vegetables and the aromatic richness of the region’s fresh herbs. As a true artisan of taste, Arnaud Donckele sculpts each ingredient, extracting the essence and revealing distinctively subtle aromas.
