Correns Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description
A medieval church converted into a gracious family holiday residence.
The house, built on the foundations of a 1000 old year church, offers spacious, bright accommodation, with access at every level to the outdoors. It sits within a pretty walled garden of terraced lawns and mature trees. The main house includes a large comfortable family room with access to the garden through two sliding French windows, arching through to a vaulted dining room and spacious and well equipped kitchen.
This in turn leads on to a garden dining terrace which connects to the guest wing. On the ground level there is a modern laundry room and cloakroom with shower, which can be used for short stay guests. A graceful staircase leads to a library and sitting room with four french windows opening on to a large south facing terrace with views over gardens, vineyards and distant mountains. The master suite is on the second floor and comprises bedroom, dressing area, a splendid large bathroom with multi-jet shower and jacuzzi bath. French windows lead to a large private terrace overlooking the garden and swimming pool. This suite has a mobile air conditioning unit.
The bedrooms in the pigeoniere were designed to give flexible accommodation for a family and friends.. The top suite has two double divan beds and a comfortable 5ft sofa bed. The room has a high beam ceiling and en-suite bathroom. The spacious ground floor en suite, has a door leading to a private terrace.

Veronica Savage purchased this chateau / country house in 2008
Why Veronica Savage chose Correns
We fell in love with L'Eglise Vieille because of its location, it's views over the valley, vineyards and distant hills yet within walking distance of the medieval village of Correns. We recognised we could convert the property we found, with its long history and attractive location into a lovely holiday home. It works for us and our friends and visitors. The Vieille E'Glise gives easy access to the coastal towns of Nice and St Tropez and the many villages that give Provence its unique character. The area of the Gorge du Verdon is a 'must see' with the beautiful lakes and the spectacular mountain scenery of the Gorge. Walking, kayaking, fishing, sightseeing, wine tasting and eating out can be part of the daily routine, as can lounging by the pool or in one of the shady corners of a very pleasant garden. Very good (bio) local wines at reasonable prices add to the attraction as might the close proximity of our popular neighbours Mr Brad Pitt and Ms. Angelina Jolie.
