What a magnificent Chateau…..better than the pictures could portray

In a peaceful quiet and truly magic setting in heart of Provence vineyards. Could not recommend this Chateau highly enough. From the wonderful bedrooms to the gardens and the fabulous swimming pool. Ian the caretaker was a wonderful ‘host’ and keeper of the Chateau. Will definitely be back
