Overview

Recommended

Built in the 12th century by the Knights Templar as a fortress protecting the land against pillaging Saracens, this chateau in Provence is now a luxurious holiday retreat with a dramatic backdrop within the French Alps.

The estate consists of three independent apartments hosting up to 18 guests, making it ideal for groups of families travelling together. Each apartment has been uniquely renovated to include all the comforts of home, not to mention superbly designed bathrooms with craftsman-style features, well-appointed kitchens, elegant sitting rooms, and charming outdoor lounge and dining spaces.

Set on 11 private acres, guests will enjoy relaxing dips in the private pool, plus hiking trails with views that will never be forgotten.

The chateau's hilltop location provides ultimate peace and tranquillity, with no neighbours in sight. However, when in need of a bit of culture, the village of Saint Andre les Alpes is just 2km away, with shops, delicious cuisine, and village tours.

The highlight of the area is Lake Castillon, with pristine turquoise waters that make it one of the most popular water sports lakes in France. The chateau not only offers beautiful aerial views of the lake, but exclusive access to a private beach as well!

The Region

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!

  • The children were squealing with delight

    Posted by Vivienne J on 02/09/2009

    OK I knew before we came round the hill where to find the castle in the distance. I pointed it out to the children. It was a beautiful sight, majestic and splendid in the far sunlight and a memory that I will never forget. It has a fantastic location and the children were squealing with delight.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful holiday

    Posted by Paddye D on 30/08/2009

    We had an absolutely wonderful holiday, the Chateau was truly beautiful, and both gites were wonderfully comfortable and equipped with everything that we could possibly need! The St Andres area is really beautiful, we had some lovely walks, and enjoyed exploring the surrounding towns, and even enjoyed some skiing at Allos. Thank you so much for all of the very useful information that you sent to me, our only complaint was that we did not have enough time to do all of the activities that you suggested!! I think we have all fallen in love with your beautiful country, and will definitely be back for another visit.

  • Wish my own home looked as grand

    Hi, We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home and I only wish my own home looked as grand. The bathrooms were out of this world.

  • 11th century Templar fortress

    Posted by Grace I on 18/01/2009

    This 11th century Templar fortress, set in the plunging foothills of the Alps, by the side of a lake, and with great views of the country all around, has been renovated to a very high level of comfort, with three self-catering apartments. We stayed in the middle-size apartment (the Saint Pierre) which includes two big bedrooms and bathrooms, plus extra sofabeds in the living-room, a well-appointed kitchen and everything you need to make yourself comnfortable. Despite some bad weather, we found the place very cosy and when it cleared up, the surroundings were really interesting to explore, with fantastic walks, and lots of good side-trips. There's also, for those who like it, the possibilitity of doing kayaking, para-gliding, etc. The village near the castle (st Andre des Alpes is very good for everything you need, with an excellent butcher, fruit and vegs, cake and bread shops, a small supermarket, and restaurants, as well as all services.
