This outstanding listed castle is erected in the heart of the Provence countryside. Burnt down just before the French Revolution, the two-story property was rebuilt circa 1840. The castle, neo-classical in style, boasts a rampart. « There’s no other property of this quality in the whole area, says Demeures du Grand Sud. The castle features gorgeous reception rooms opening onto a forecourt with unobstructed view over the gardens and the meadows. » In all, the estate provides 1,500 sq m of living space. The ground floor features a fully-equipped kitchen and a hall that distributes five huge adjoining reception rooms including a library, a Henri II dining room with a listed ceiling, a living room adorned with pink marble columns and Zuber grisailles, and two additional living rooms. An elegant staircase leads to the six bedrooms upstairs combining refined decoration and state-of-the-art technologies including Internet, A/C and satellite TV. Outbuildings include a unit featuring a loft-like apartment and an 80 sq m keeper’s apartment, and two cottages complete with a kitchen, a living room with a fireplace, a bedroom and a private bathroom, accomodating each up to three guests. The 35 ha park features a bamboo forest, farmlands, a swimming pool and a tennis court. This jewel is only 35-minute away from Avignon train station.
