Carpentras chateau / country house description

A marvel of opulence and classical French style, this luxury castle in Ventoux will take you back to a time when the noble classes lived like royalty–and in this case, you're the king! In the morning, warm up in the gym or have a friendly match of tennis. Or basketball. Or squash. Or volleyball. Eat your noon meal outdoors at this luxury chateau near Carpentras, by the pool or the fountain. Then check your email or spoil yourself with a bubble bath and a good book. Spend the afternoon strolling through carefully manicured formal gardens before slipping up a staircase (tended by exquisite marble statues) to your bedchamber to change for dinner—a lavish, candlelit affair. We could go on about this luxury accommodation in Provence, but you get the idea. This isn’t everything, either. Read on…
This peaceful, private 18th century estate is located between Carpentras and Orange near Avignon. The enclosed estate comprises 17 acres and is surrounded by vineyards and orchards. Immaculately restored and offering full-service luxury accommodations for up to 32 guests, the estate includes the chateau, the farm building, conference and business centers, sports facilities, and grounds; maintenance and agricultural areas on the estate are not available for guests' use. The chateau's extensive formal gardens and parks include a stream, an obelisk, reflecting pools, a collection of wild geese and ducks from around the world, and a moat with Japanese carp. The chateau is furnished with beautiful antique furniture and art.
