About the villa

Privately screened with tall trees and elevated to enjoy the views of rolling hills, the château stands in gated grounds, formally laid with lawns and low hedges, where the shade of a broad branched tree cools an al fresco dining area. Pathways lead to an olive grove, a large sun terrace, and a heatable swimming pool in a pine scented setting, and a barbecue and table tennis add to outdoor leisure; all overseen by the graceful and historic house. But this imposing exterior gives no hint of the transformation within. The huge rooms, high ceilings and hallways remain, but the addition of interconnecting doors makes a practical use of space, and intriguing antiques are now highlighted with contemporary chic décor. The dining room, all white and wood, sets a simple timber table beside an elaborate fireplace; the sitting room is modern, monochrome and minimalist; in the arty, uncluttered bedrooms, old world artefacts are used to great effect; and the tower has been cleverly re-created as a children’s dormitory suite. Cook service can be pre-booked for this unique villa, and Forcalquier’s shops, restaurants and market are 10km away.

Important information

Please note that this house is suitable for up to 8 adults and 4 children, due to the size of the small circular dormitory and the size of its beds
