Representing much more than just a holiday apartment, and offering much more privacy than any hotel-suite, every dwelling of Chateau de Villarlong will be a magnificent location for our guests.
Both wings of the Chateau – South Wing and Park Wing - have been rebuilt into spacious, extravagant apartments – each with open fireplace and separate patio – for 2, 4 or 6 guests. The apartments capture an aura of being remote from urban influence in a very special way; the unique atmosphere of the Chateau remains unchanged. The monumental, extravagant basic structures of the building have been maintained. All apartments have modern, well-equipped kitchens, with dishwasher, ceran hot plates, etc. Some of the apartments are designed after a certain motto: the historical background of the Chateau as place of refuge for victims of persecution in the Middle Ages and the colonial connections with Africa and Southeast Asia in the 19th century have been taken up for inspiration - not claiming to be ethnologically perfect. Other apartments are designed according to Mediterranean style. The names are taken from the surrounding castles of the Catharians; the names of the motto-inspired apartments are taken from the country they are referring to.
The magnificent pool is available to all guests, just as the on-site restaurant, tennis court, boulodrome, outdoor chess, free parking, the Château park, promenades through olive groves and vineyards within 70 hectares of private property.
The private office is open on indicated hours to answer any questions our guests may have. Restaurant reservations can be made before your arrival by e-mail or telephone or personally in the morning of the same day. Our cleaning staff may accept personal laundry from our guests - ask for laundry fees.
For our guests' comfort, we gladly provide an arrival kit (toilet paper, garbage bag, dish-washing tab) for the first day – after that, our guests take care of these items themselves. Please bring your own kitchen-towels as well. Sheets, bedcovers, beach-towels, towels, tennis, and the final cleaning of the apartment are included in the complete price. On departure day, please empty garbage cans, dispose of empty bottles, check and basically clean sinks and oven.
