History at the door of Avignon

Overlooking a local river, the castle sits in a peaceful and quiet environment while being close to Avignon

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.
