After long reflections, professional changes, no doubt a helping hand from fate and certainly blindness in the face of the magnitude of the project, we were finally able to acquire the castle in 2019. The responsibility of reviving this jewel of provençal and comtadin heritage, which had unfortunately suffered years of neglect, imposed itself on us.
In view of the urgency, a complete diagnosis established under the direction of Didier Repellin, Chief Architect of Historic Monuments with an international reputation, who has notably restored the « Villa Médicis », Roma, between 1995 and 2013, the "Hôtel-Dieu" in Lyon, and the Antique Theatre in Orange, and with the help of the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs, made it possible to phase in the necessary work.
The most urgent of these, namely the restoration of the leaking and ruinous roof, was undertaken in succession and lasted almost 2 years. The work was particularly extensive, with almost 1000 m2 of provençal tiles.
At the same time, the park was cleaned, cleared of brush and pruned to restore some of its splendour.
It is through its shaded alleys, punctuated with water beds, vestiges of the french garden, that we are pleased to invite you.
The place is ideal for strolling and daydreaming under the foliage of the age-old trees.
We propose a thematic tour which will allow you to discover the holiday resorts of the nobility of the time, and more recently, of the curists coming to take advantage of the freshness of this natural setting.
