If you feel the need to leave the glorious grounds of the chateau, there are activities beyond the gates. You can canoe down the river and take in the peaceful scenery.
The Chef (not included) can prepare a picnic for you to enjoy among the vineyards and orchards on the river banks. For the more active: horse riding, hiking, cycling and skiing can be arranged. There are also several nearby golf courses.

The Summer Arts Festival in the old papal city of Avignon is famous for its films, theatre and street performers. And let's not forget bullfighting.
The stunning setting of two of the most intact Roman arenas in France - Nimes and Arles – is perfect for watching the toreadors and the bulls act out their ancient ritual.

The area is steeped in history. There are ruins, ancient villages, monuments, museums, medieval villages and towns and unchanged countryside to see and explore. The influence of Greek and Roman involvement over the last 2500 years is obvious everywhere.

T&Cs

  • Staff: The rental fee includes the services of the staff, excluding any Guide charges. As prescribed by French labour law, each Staff member is officially only permitted to work a 35-hour week. The Tenant should bear this in mind when requiring the Staff to work long hours. It should also be noted that the Staff will work in relays during the period 8.00 hrs - 24.00 hrs each day and each Staff member will alternate in order for each one to have one day off per week. In view of this, it is customary for the Tenant to leave a staff gratuity. This Staff Gratuity will also help compensate the Staff for working much longer hours than are normal.
  • Minimum rental period: We only permit bookings for increments of 1 week (Sat - Sat) in the high season (1 May - 31 October & 20th December - 5th January) and a minimum of 3 nights in the off-season.
