About Le Castellas
A stunning 17th-century chateau, close to the artistic hub and historic town of Aix-en-Provence, Le Castellas offers a simply magnificent level of accommodation. Thoroughly modernised while maintaining its original character, this effortlessly stylish property promises a memorable stay in a monumental mansion.
The chateau lies within 12 private acres of rolling lawns, formal gardens and shaded terraces, dotted here and there with antique fountains. Inside, a grand entrance hall with original oil paintings gives onto living spaces including the drawing room, kitchen and a spacious dining room decorated with murals.
11 well-appointed bedrooms, most of them en suite, are spread over the first and top floors. There’s also an amply sized recreation room with billiard table and TV. As might be expected, Le Castellas is elegantly decorated throughout with a beguiling mix of French antiques, furnishings and objets d’art.
In the grounds of the chateau there is plenty to occupy your time, including a tennis court, swimming pool, chapel and the ruins of a 17th-century castle. As you roam through the tranquil gardens there are sumptuous views of Sainte-Victoire mountain to enjoy. Be sure to leave at least a day though to explore Aix-en-Provence, with its wonderful architecture, high-end shopping and vibrant nightlife.
