The 200-hectare grounds include a vineyard with 100-year old olive groves and plane trees, perfect background for your exclusive holiday or destination wedding.

A stay here includes the ultimate service, including a concierge and housekeeping, whilst cooking/serving (including breakfast, light lunch and dinner) and chauffeur can be also arranged on request and for an additional fee. Relax in 16 bedrooms, 7 of which are en-suite, and explore the elegant Orangerie, ballroom, courtyard, main hall and red salons. A tennis court and expansive swimming pool will keep you active.

  • Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience

    Posted by Catherine on 28/09/2017

    The estate is gorgeous! The furnishing is tasteful, and so is the interior in the bath rooms, lobby, bedrooms etc. The outdoors, garden, front yard, backyard, pool area, - all are extremly charming. You will feel like a king/queen/princess here! For a once-in-a-lifetime experience; you'll find it here.

  • Many thanks for a tremendous stay at the Chateau!

    Posted by Gunner A on 08/12/2011

    Many thanks for a tremendous stay at the Chateau! My family was thrilled with your magnificent home and the beautiful surroundings. We were also immensely impressed with the extremely friendly and efficient staff of Justin, Julian, Gerta (sp?), Lavinia and Nina. They were superb. And, of course, you as a very welcoming and charming hostess made a great impression. Can / could you export the wine to the UK? It will never taste as good as beneath the plane trees watching the sun set, but a little slice of Provence in the English countryside is still nice. Best of luck with the rest of the summer! Kind regards,
