This elegant seventeenth century chateau is located just north of Aix en Provence. The chateau has been updated to today’s standards of luxury comforts, while maintaining the essence of its Old World charm. Within the lovely manicured grounds, you will find a twelfth century tower and a sixteenth century chapel that serves as a romantic and memorable setting for weddings, costume balls or concerts.
The property enjoys spectacular views of Mont Ste Victoire. The beautiful heated outdoor swimming pool is set amidst the ruins of the palace of the Archbishop Jerome de Grimaldi, who held court at the property from 1655-1685. The twelve acr...e garden includes a pine forest and lovely terraces for entertaining and alfresco dining. For tennis aficionados, the on-site court is a brilliant setting for one of those rare thirteen shot rallies. Inside, you will find a billiards table next to a bar and lounge area, a piano, a wine cellar, a home entertainment system and Internet access.
Decorated with antique French furnishings, the interiors of Chateau D’Aix exude a regal and stately ambience at every turn. The expansive villa stretches over four floors. The main entrance, with original Florentine paintings, opens onto a large hall. To the left of the entrance are the library, drawing room, laundry room, staircase and wheelchair accessible lift. To the right of the entrance are the main salon, fully equipped kitchen and the dining room, which is richly furnished and features valuable artwork.
The eleven bedrooms at Chateau D’Aix have all been named for renowned French artists. The chateau is suitable for fourteen people, though it can accommodate up to twenty-two people upon request. Each bedroom displays its own design and decorative themes, while combining plush contemporary comforts with the resplendence you would expect at this historical site.
During your stay at Chateau D’Aix, St. Tropez and Avignon are within easy driving distance. Although the property is not located in town, it’s a short trip to the village of Puyricard. Within a few minutes drive, you will also find a beautiful eighteen hole golf course at Provence Country Club. Not only will this trip to France provide utter elegance and relaxation, but your stay at Chateau D’Aix also offers you the opportunity to be part of a rich era of days gone by.
