A backdrop of vines, olive groves and woodland creates the quintessential Provençal setting for Château des Vignes, a stunning family home which has been transformed into a stylish and relaxing place to stay. Approached by way of a country lane that meanders past the owners' vineyards, the entrance is through a wrought iron gate into the front courtyard where a stone fountain and greenery evoke a tranquil atmosphere.
Steps lead up to the entrance hall where the original tiled floor, a high ceiling decorated in frescos and a double staircase set the scene.
The transformation of the interior has been a labour of love for the owners, who have retained the charm of the ancient building and infused it with modern touches, creating rooms that are effortlessly stylish.
Tastefully furnished, the dining room leads into the well equipped kitchen, which in turn leads out to the rear terrace. A sophisticated finishing touch is the bar, a delightful room where you can gather for an apéritif before dinner.
Careful thought has been given to the design of the pool: its colours reflect the surrounding olive trees whilst at one end, there is a shallow 'plage' or beach area for young children.
To the far side of the property is another building (accessed independently), occupied by the owners who maintain the grounds, pool and the surrounding vineyards.
