Chateau d'Azur Luxury Villa with Home Theatre, Heated Pool, Fireplace and Gym
Description from the manager
Built by Lord Amherst of London in 1904, this outstanding 15-bedroom chateau has been lovingly restored to its former beauty with the addition of 21st century amenities and technology. Elegantly poised in the Esterel Mountains, just 5 minutes from sandy beaches and the sea, Chateau dAzur is perfect for a private, luxurious break with friends, family or colleagues. Its also the ideal venue for a social event or romantic wedding (extra fees may apply) and is fully accessible for people with restricted mobility.
As you step across the threshold, a graceful staircase sweeps your attention to the upper levels and you immediately feel the grandeur of this magnificent setting. Summer sunshine suffuses the entrance hall with radiance while in cooler months a welcoming fire will be crackling in the grate. Indoors there are five reception rooms for hosting guests, including a home theater and games room with billiard table. A professional kitchen takes the pressure off grand-scale entertaining and a wedding/events planner can be hired at extra cost. Theres a secondary kitchen for family use and a gym for working off those extra calories!
Mellow walls and wooden floors are warmed by tall fireplaces and occasional rugs while thick lined drapes curtain the oversized windows. Antique furnishings and tiered chandeliers grace most of the rooms and a hand carved screen divides the drawing and dining rooms. Deep winged armchairs and a selection of comfy sofas are arranged around reading lamps, while an upright piano begs to be played. Step outdoors and youll be greeted by a sunny terrace and full size swimming pool, screened by mature gardens and bedecked with sun loungers. Up to 250 guests can be catered for in the sheltered cloisters, and you can savor a local bottle of wine with lunch on the patio, framed by potted trees and plants.
Each of the chateaus 15 individually-styled bedrooms is a gracefully furnished haven of peace, with sea or mountain views. All the rooms on the garden and ground floors are served by deluxe en-suite bathrooms, most with bathtubs and showers, while the three first-floor bedrooms share bathrooms. Bedroom Two enjoys private access to the garden, and the Lord and Lady Amherst rooms are adjoining.
A ping-pong table and petanque court will keep you amused in the grounds. If you wish to travel further afield its only 2km to the nearest beach and 35km to Cannes or 60km to St. Tropez. Nice Airport is a 40-minute drive.
