Chateau de la Fontaine, Avignon, Provence

Sleeps 29

€27,000 - €50,000 per week

Chateau de La Fontaine, built in 1612 and rebuilt in 1760, is one of the most impressive private properties in Provence available to rent.

Situated in the heart of the Rhone valley and within easy reach of Avignon, St. Remy and Aix-en-Provence, the Estate comprises 17 acres of mature wooded parkland, elegant formal gardens, orchards and streams. At its heart lies the Chateau itself.

The house has been beautifully restored, using traditional colours and paint techniques giving an authentic Provençal feel, whilst still enjoying all modern conveniences including air conditioning, WiFi, satellite TV, gym, a really beautiful and large swimming pool and tennis court.

This is the perfect base from which to explore the many historic and cultural sights, shopping, fine wines and food of Provence. With nine bedroom suites in the Chateau itself and a further seven in the annex which is the old converted farm, this is a good destination for that really special event you are planning or just for large family get-togethers.   The 17th century private chapel in the grounds is perfect for weddings, blessings and christenings and extra staff, marquees, fireworks and catering can be arranged. A magical place from which your guests will take some unforgettable memories.

The Chateau is ideally situated to explore Provence. There are the nearby world famous Châteauneuf du Pape vineyards as well as those of Vacqueyras, Gigondas and Beaumes de Ven. A little further afield are the many Rosé producers of Southern Provence. Avignon, Orange with its Roman amphitheatre, the Pont du Gard near Nime and the Roman theatres in Arles are all nearby as well as wonderful antique stores, boutiques and markets at L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, St. Rémy de Provence and of course Aix-en-Provence. Nearly every nearby town and village has a market at least once a week.
