Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Since 2014

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Its look with its marvellous garden and the feeling of peace with the silence and only the bird’s song.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

The Chateau was built in the XVII century, lot of thing happen since this time and the Chateau has lived them all…

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt came and all the casting of the “Made in Chelsea” series

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Avignon festival in July, Visit “Palais des papes” in Avignon, or the Amphitheatre in Orange, stroll through the typical Provençal markets to live the real Provence.
For Kids there are lot of different activities around, even the biggest Water park in Europe “Splashworld”.
For the cycle lover the most famous mountain of “Tour de France” is waiting for you.

Really eat?
Is it said "A la parisienne", "à la Lilloise" or "à la Lyonaise" for a dish? No, so it’s proof that Provence dominates gastronomy…And what about the wine, most of the best wine in the world is born in Provence.

Really see?
Provence itself is a must to see, proof is Van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Picasso and many more like Signac, Matisse, Braque, Derain, Dufy... They all found inspiration in Provence. We’re in the heart of Provence so you should visit the most beautiful villages in Provence (Gordes, Roussillon, Isle sur Sorgues, Fontaines de Vaucluses,…). The Lavender field especially “Abbaye de Senanque”.

    The Chateau exceeded our highest expectations, the photographs could never do it justice, it may only be captured in person and I could not recommend this experience any higher. Beautiful and amazing, grandeur yet homely and relaxing, we loved it! We are fortunate to have travelled to many beautiful parts of the world and stayed in many luxury villas and hotels, but Chateau du Taureau is the best of the best, made even more perfect by our charming and efficient hosts Jonathan, Fabian and the beautiful Vanessa, thank you for making the trip so amazing. We leave with sad hearts but fondest memories.

    Never in my life have I experienced such a wonderful exposure to a beautiful home and surrounding culture. The two weeks we spent here was simply a tease into this amazing region of Provence. I will never forget this awesome place. Incredible! And, as a UCLA water polo player, I must say the pool was the most beautiful I have ever seen. Honestly! I cannot imagine another vacation spot that could be better. Great wine, great people, great countryside. I had the time of my life. Thank you!

Sumptuous feasts, violin concerts in the chapel, croquet in our whites on the lawn, ballooning, bicycling, and aperitif each night in a more beautiful location. I want more more more! Thanks so much.

  • Magnifique!
