Authentic Château in Cote d'Azur, France

Looking around Sotheby's Real Estate website I came across this magnificent 16th century Château in Tourves, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, France. There's quite a lot of information about this property but I will summarize it for you. You're welcome, precious.

It has over 250 acres of vines, olive-groves, meadows, forests and river banks (Argens river). The Bastide offers 800 square meters and was renovated in strict observance of antique materials and techniques (stone-cutting, lime coatings, XVIIIth century woodwork, vaulted rooms, tiles, wrought iron). The Château's façade and theatrical stairs and fountain were created in 1784 ; the cedar and chestnut trees avenue was planted in 1848. Older still, a 16th century stone arch-door, a vaulted sheepfold and several tiled water and wine cisterns are to be seen.
The Bastide comprises : 1000 square meters of agricultural buildings (farm, barn, sheepfold, bread oven) 9 rooms on the first and second floors. 2 old-style bathrooms, 3 shower rooms. 70 square-meter vaulted kitchen with castle stove and monumental fireplace. 90 square-meter vaulted lounge + chapel with roman apse and monumental fireplace.

  1. absolutely amazing - look at that lovely kitchen! you don't expect that in a building like that...

  2. I think I am going to dream of the chateau the whole weekend ....

  3. Is that the home from that Russell Crowe movie A Good Year?

  4. Ok, I'm inspired now! This is what I love to see. Absolutely amazing chateau and beautifully decorated.

  5. Thanks everyone for your comments!

    I haven't seen that Russell Crowe movie yet, but I searched for some photographs and I'm quite sure it's not the same house. I admit it has exactly the same feel and it is located in the same place,Provence. But I noticed some outside shutters which do not appear in this château. I also guess that such information would have been on Sotheby's page!
    Anyhow, thanks to you now I must see this film!
