Oliver's Travels Launches The Ultimate Downton Abbey Experience in the Glitz and Glamour of the French Riviera

Eagerly counting down the days until the release of the next Downton Abbey film? If you're not content with merely watching the action play out on the big screen, aspiring Crawleys can live out the luxury lifestyle with the Oliver’s Travels Downton Abbey Experience. As part of this new and exclusive package, you'll get to stay at the actual property used in the making of the series' second motion picture, ‘Downton Abbey: A New Era’, released this April.

Situated in the lavish South of France, Palais De L'Ocean is a true architectural gem. Everything here is grand and beautiful, bringing the Downton dream to life through the welcoming palm tree salute, palatial hallway, marble staircase and ornately decorated living spaces. You'll find seating areas, tables, sculptures and works of art around every corner. To the exterior, you're invited to take strolls past the swimming pool and down various terraced levels to find a rocky cove and azure sea - feel like you're part of the Grantham crowd yet?

Besides being able to stay at Oliver’s Travels Palais De L’Ocean, engulfed in the picturesque French Riviera, this spectacular experience boasts a number of opulent extras and special touches fit for a Lord and Lady. Featuring everything from clay pigeon shooting to horse riding, a casino night and extravagant ball, guests will be able to holiday in true regal style this summer.

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!
