“Chateau Talaud offers stylish, luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of Provence. The five bedrooms are very spacious and decorated with beautiful antiques which perfectly complement the grandeur of the property. For those aiming to be slightly more independent there are also two apartments and a separate cottage (which sleeps up to 5) available for self catering. The gardens are beautiful with plenty of areas for relaxing with a glass of the chateau's own vino. The location too is ideal - only 15 mins by car from Avignon and Orange, and easy access to L'Isle sur la Sorgue for those who want to pick up their own antiques to take home.”
