Description from manager

A marvel of opulence and classical French style, this luxury castle in Ventoux will take you back to a time when the noble classes lived like royalty–and in this case, you're the king! In the morning, warm up in the gym or have a friendly match of tennis. Or basketball. Or squash. Or volleyball. Eat your noon meal outdoors at this luxury chateau near Carpentras, by the pool or the fountain. Then check your email or spoil yourself with a bubble bath and a good book. Spend the afternoon strolling through carefully manicured formal gardens before slipping up a staircase (tended by exquisite marble statues) to your bedchamber to change for dinner—a lavish, candlelit affair.

This peaceful, private 18th century estate is located between Carpentras and Orange near Avignon. Immaculately restored and offering full-service luxury accommodations for up to 15 guests, the estate includes the chateau, sports facilities, and a wedding chapel.

About the area

<p> Situated in the Provence countryside between the cities of Carpentras and Orange near Avignon, this private vacation villa offers many local activities and sightseeing opportunities. The surrounding countryside offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in France, with its rolling hills, vineyards and verdant orchards. Enjoy the fresh air as you explore the nearby market town of Sarrians or venture further into the medieval cities of Carpentras and Orange for sightseeing and shopping. Every Friday morning, Carpentras has a colorful market that brings people from all over the region. Orange is an amazing historic city known especially for its ancient Roman theatre, the only one in Europe which still retains its stage wall. It also has some impressive Roman arches and an old city with narrow streets and shady squares, perfect for an afternoon stroll. Orange is also noted for its variety of cultural events, particularly its annual international opera festival. Further away is Avignon, a city ringed by a medieval wall, inside of which you will find narrow, winding streets and ancient buildings filled with shops and restaurants. Avignon is easy to get in and out of by train, is a wonderful city to visit and noteworthy sites include the Palace of the Popes, the Musee Carnavalet, and Notre Dame des Doms cathedral. To Paris, it is 3 hours via non-stop TGV super express train or 50 minutes by air. </p> <p> Marseille: 100 km/ 62 mi
