Chateau outside Nice
- SQM 1,500
This medieval fortress sits proudly on a hilltop with stunning panoramic views of the Cote D’Azur. Just fifteen minutes from Nice, it is ideal for a luxurious retreat, or the perfect location for a wedding, party or corporate event!
Lovingly restored from ruins, this unique and luxurious residence is a truly enchanting place to stay. An early 11th century fortress, built by Marquis Villeneuve, the chateau is ideally situated for privacy and relaxation in the peaceful hills of the popular Cote D’Azur.
Set in over three hectares of land, in its commanding hilltop position, the chateau is surrounded by landscaped terraces and gardens. Each of the four terraces, provide a unique and stunning setting for events, and the many mature trees within the grounds withhold the ancient history of this magical place.
Over the years, more than six thousand plants and trees have been nurtured here to create gardens that reflect the natural beauty of the region. It is easy to see how the breath-taking views and rich colours of the surrounding Provençale countryside inspired artists such as Cézanne, Matisse and Chagall. From the snow-covered caps of the Alps, to the sparkling turquoise sea of the Cote D’Azur, it captures the very essence of Provence.
The crystal clear swimming pool, settled into the beautiful terraces of the chateau, has the added feature of an infinity waterfall. The sound of the gently lapping water creates a calming and most therapeutic atmosphere whilst you
relax by the poolside or enjoy the Jacuzzi. The chateau also features an indoor gym facility and spa area.
The tastefully simple interior of the chateau has been designed for comfort, yet with a sense of real luxury. In the large salon, which has doors leading onto a terrace and views of the beautiful Var valley, your guests can be seduced by the warm tones of the baby grand piano. The chateau’s fifteen ensuite bedrooms all have extra large beds with handmade
mattresses, and ample wardrobe space for the discerning traveller. The cool marble interiors of the bathrooms, with plentiful hot water and fresh towels will help you to unwind or freshen up at any time of the day.
After a wonderful day of swimming, terrace dining and soaking up the Provençale atmosphere, you will be lulled to a restful night’s sleep in this enchanted chateau by the comforting chirping of the cicadas.
The chateau is the ideal location for private stays, large stylish weddings, corporate events, shows, and conferences, or just as a wonderful retreat from a busy life.
Both indoor and outdoor eating are catered for, making it the perfect location for cooking retreats and television cookery programmes. The outdoor facilities, with a stage for theatre, music, fashion shows, product launches and displays, are absolutely superb.
With the natural backdrop of the chateau and the surrounding landscape, the setting is simply breath-taking.
