Chateau du Vieux Palais is an exceptionally magnificent masterpiece which is utterly unrivalled and surpasses all expectations. Enjoying superb views over the Saint Victoire mountain, the property dates back to the 17th Century when it was built for the Archbishop with breathtakingly luxurious taste.

Today, the chateau has been elegantly restored providing all the necessary luxurious comforts whilst still maintaining its character, Provençal charm and history. The ruins of the Archbishop’s historic seat grace the extensive estate and reign next to the original chapel and Bastide. The estate’s grounds are a playground of dreams for the whole family, with a private swimming pool, tennis court, table tennis, boules court and boundless gardens and parklands to explore. There is also a fabulous artisan chocolate maker in the nearby village.

The charming Bastide is beautifully decorated with an extravagant hall, reception rooms, library, card room, dining room and fully equipped kitchen. It boasts 11 luxurious bedrooms and 8 bathrooms as well as a games room equipped with a billiard table and TV.

Chateau du Vieux Palais is a unique place for those seeking luxury and tranquillity, in the company of friends and family, in the heart of the desirable Provence, close to both the mountains and the sea. You will experience true indulgence with blissful settings and a serene atmosphere providing you with an unforgettable holiday.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

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!
