Chateau des Alpilles
Saint-Remy, Provence, France|www.chateaudesalpilles.com|
Official star rating:
Located five minutes from Saint-Remy and 15 minutes from Les Baux-en-Provence, this beautiful 19th-century chateau is surrounded by a glorious 300-year-old park, with native and exotic trees.
Once famous for hosting France’s best-known politicians, artists and writers, today the romantic rooms – furnished with an astute mix of period and contemporary design – offer an atmospheric refuge from a more genteel era.
It’s an idyllic place to linger in and there’s plenty to do, with a beautiful heated pool, tennis and petanque courts, fitness and massage rooms, and electric bikes to hire; the exceptional restaurant is an added bonus. And Avignon, Arles and Aix are all within an hour’s drive.
