Château de Massillan Provence, France

“Beautifully renovated chateau with turret bedrooms, parklands, and lake. Large swimming pool and elegant interiors perfectly marrying modern decor with a historical property. Herbed gardens and lavender banks fill the air with delicate aroma. Some of the regions finest cuisine. The ideal escape.”

“Built in 1550 for Diane de Poitiers, Henry II’s mistress, and reworked in the 18th-century, this is a real crenelated castle with a turret bedroom, 24-acre park and its own lake. In their stunning conversion, its designer owners, Peter Wylly and Birgit Israel, have created a masterly blend of the old and the new with a delightfully unstuffy feel.”

Château de Massillan

"It's fair to expect a small luxury hotel to be charming, but nothing could have prepared us for the dramatic sight of the Château de Massillan's starkly beautiful proportions, revealed at the end of a suitable driveway leading into leafy grounds."
