Situated in the Luberon Regional Park, near one of the most beautiful villages in the region. This is a most splendid protected environment in the midst of vineyards, lavender fields and rolling hills.
Available for weekly, daily or weekend rentals, by individual building or entire property.
The main chateau is in fact a XVIIth and XVIIIth Century Castle, built between 1635 and 1707 and thought to have originally been used as a hunting lodge before transitioning into the castle it is today.
Guests are surrounded by breathtaking views of vineyards, lavender fields and truffle oaks, as well as a small olive grove and superbly landscaped formal gardens. The resulting atmosphere is truly enchanting.
A long driveway flanked by tall platane trees guide you to the Chateau, which has been completely restored ensuring XVIIth century architectural respect. A beautiful alignment of mullioned windows and stone frames, highlighted by the intricately carved front door, welcome you into the interior of the chateau where 1000 square meters of living space is found.
Two spectacular pools are found here as well - One uniquely positioned within the historical Orangerie, offering a fantastic indoor experience with walled windows; and a second located outdoors overlooking the gorgeous views of the surrounding hills.
A delightful vaulted chapel with beautiful carved gate dating back to 1661 can also be found adjoining the main Chateau.
The former stone farmhouse of the domain is found situated on a hillside just behind the Main Chateau. Also dating back to the XVIIIth century, it is comprised of around 600 square meters of living space, all in impeccable condition, to welcome added guests as needed.
An independent swimming pool within the Farmhouse gardens also offers added options for larger groups to enjoy the Provence sunshine.
The ground floor here houses a spacious entrance hall leading to a large vaulted sitting room with fireplace, and television room, a superbly well-fitted kitchen with dining room, as well as a games room, boiler room, laundry and independent garage.
All six beautiful bedrooms and four bathrooms are found on the second level of the farmhouse.
An additional charming guest house is found near the château, which has been spectacularly converted from the former Chateau stables. Approximately 100 square meters of living space is found here, also in perfect condition with sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms all on the ground floor level.
