Pin this Villa
The Château de Goult dates back over 800 years, with 21st. Century additions of bathrooms, satellite TV and wireless internet. For a medieval castle, it is surprisingly cozy. It comfortably sleeps 14 adults, or 12 adults and 8 children total. There are 5 double bedrooms, a twin room, and a single, as well as a suite than can either be a double or a dormitory for children. There are 6 bathrooms. The château is at the top of the village of Goult, one of the hill-top villages of Provençe and the Luberon natural park's best-kept secret. Goult has everything available on foot: beautiful winding streets, good restaurants, food shops, a central café on the square, and no tourist buses. The Luberon is where 'A Year in Provence' is set. There is a lovely garden over three levels, with high arching trees and a swimming basin measuring 8m x 2.5m. Despite its scale, the château is impressive but not imposing. Rooms are light and spacious, most with views over the village towards the Luberon Mountains.

Locale

The Château is located in the beautiful medieval hill-top village of Goult, in the Luberon region of Provence, which is where Peter Mayle wrote his book "A Year in Provence". It is a region noted for its beautiful landscapes of vineyards, orchards and lavender, with very picturesque hill-top villages dotted about. It is an hour north of Marseille and close to Avignon, Arles, Aix, Nîmes, the Camargue, Orange, Mont Ventoux, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and the Rhône wine trail. In summer there are art festivals everywhere, from the famous one at Avignon, to the international piano festival at La Roque d'Antheron, to small local events. Goult has the well-loved Café de la Poste in its square, which is where locals and visitors gather for a coffee or meal. There are good restaurants, and small shops like a bakery, butcher and greengrocer. Just minutes from Gordes, Roussillon and Bonnieux.

Getting here:
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.
