“Luxurious five star manor farm-cum-chateau on 1,500-acre private estate of vineyards. Chic elegant rooms in gentle hues and flooded with light. Exceptional french cuisine and wine options many coming from the estate. Glorious spa and infinity pool. A truly indulgent french escape.”

Hotel Review

You’d be hard pushed to find a more stunning spot in Var than this secluded hotel – more manor farm than Château – amidst acres of vineyards. With a raft of activities on offer, from wine tastings and cookery lessons to tennis and quad biking, you’ll never be bored. The food is outstanding; lunches, served at the poolside grill shaded by olive trees; snacks and picnics at Le Bistrot; first-rate gastronomic food at L’Orangerie. The house is beautifully decorated in Provençal style; the pretty bedrooms, decked out with local fabric (or toile de Jouy) and local furniture.
