chateau aubenas

7 nights villa rental from £3,000 chateau aubenas provence

Originally owned by French royalty, this luxury 5 bedroom 16th century château has been beautifully restored and modernised and is set in the stunning rural landscape of the Lubéron.

Privately screened with tall trees and its elevated position allows the château to enjoy the views of rolling hills.  The property stands in gated grounds, formally laid with lawns and low hedges, where the shade of a broad branched tree provides shade for an al fresco dining area. Pathways lead to an olive grove, a large sun terrace, and a swimming pool in a pine scented setting, and a barbecue and table tennis add to the outdoor enjoyment of this wonderful, historic château.  

The magnificent and imposing exterior gives a clue to the quality of the interior. The huge rooms, high ceilings and hallways remain, but the addition of interconnecting doors makes a practical use of space, and intriguing antiques are now highlighted with contemporary chic décor. The dining room, all white and wood, sets a simple timber table beside an elaborate fireplace; the sitting room is modern, monochrome and minimalist; in the arty, uncluttered bedrooms, old world artefacts are used to great effect; and the tower has been cleverly re-created as a children’s dormitory suite.

Cook service can be pre-booked for this unique villa, and Forcalquier’s shops, restaurants and market are 10km away.

Nearest airports are Marseille 90km and Avignon 86km.  Aix-en-Provence railway station is 70km.
