Welcome to Château d’Estoublon. This 18th century castle is a short leisurely drive from the exquisite village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
The expansive estate is surrounded by beautifully designed gardens, olive groves and vineyards. Cypress pines and an avenue of enormous plain trees line the entrances to the property.
Beyond the vines there is national park, and the limestone hills make a stunning backdrop - evocative of Van Gogh's works.
During fall, the wisteria vines are a glowing yellow, while the boston ivy turns the enclosed courtyard area into a warm rouge.
You cannot escape the sweet perfume of roses as you explore the gardens.
The castle has been recently renovated and can be rented in its entirety with a capacity for twenty guests with all of the luxuries one would expect.
The chapel is magical both day and night and makes this property a popular location for French destination weddings.
There are plenty of quiet places to enjoy the garden's tranquility.
Weathered finials complement the blue grey of the lavender rows and olive groves.
A true luxury getaway, this property is a must visit, even if just for the restaurant and beautiful gift shop full of local produce and wine.
