Overview

Montfort Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, sleeps 12

Enjoy your holidays in this welcoming 16th century hilltop château. The wide panoramic view from this 4-star property can be enjoyed all day long from its south facing terraces, balconies, and pool area. The château has been tastefully renovated and is outfitted with modern conveniences.

Although the feeling is very peaceful overlooking the rooftops of this small historical village, the highway entrance to the A51 is a convenient 10 minute drive away. Aix-en-Provence is 60 minutes away, Marseille 80 minutes.

Château Montfort has a Main building, a Guest wing, and the Common area. The Main building has a Master Suite and a second bedroom, both with connected, spacious full bathrooms. The kitchen and its two dining areas are open, warm, and inviting as well as offering a wonderful view. From there you can step out to the upper terraces, which includes an outdoor pizza oven.

The Guest wing has its own living room and fully equipped, charming kitchen as well as a smaller dining area also with the view overlooking the Durance Valley. The Guest Master bedroom is located on the top floor and has a connected bathroom. Next to this is a smaller room with two twin beds. On the ground level in the Guest house are two more bedrooms with direct access to the terrace/pool area.

The Common area includes the vaulted ceiling Grand Salon which serves as the Game Room, housing the billiard table, electronic games, board games and books. This is also the only area where smoking is allowed.

The heatable pool (not visible from outside the property) has its own poolhouse with refrigerator, WC, and shower. Multiple terraces and balconies –covered and open-- are available to enjoy the sun and the view.

Connection to the internet is available via WiFi in the Main building. A simple computer is also available for use to check emails and websites.

Car parking onsite is available for 3 or more cars. One covered garage with automatic opener is available as well as parking on the gravel drive alongside the chateau's exterior wall. If further space is required a small public parking is available only a few minutes walk away.

Tennis courts are a short 10 minutes drive across the Durance in Les Mees. 18 hole golf courses are located in Digne les Bains (30 minutes drive) and Pierrevert, a further 15 minutes away.

An amazing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
This amazing spot was like an incredible oasis where the history and charm of a beautiful chateau met the peaceful environment of Provence. The chateau was spacious; the grounds impeccable and the hosts outstanding. Who could ask for anything more!

Enchanting!

  • 5 of 5
Place is beautiful and owners were most helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean and had beautiful views of the countryside. It's a unique setting, comfortable and with a great kitchen--everything we'd hoped for and much more! I highly recommend it. Good location for day trips in the area.

What an amazing experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
What can I say but...WOW!!! Beautiful, comfortable, wonderful!!! Gerard and Karen thought of everything that you could EVER need for your stay! They even had numerous umbrellas at the front door for those unexpected rain showers....Gerard drove us to the local restaurant as we were not familiar with the area and just had a long trip from Valbonne. The rooms were large and clean and decorated quite beautifully...the architecture was to die for....there were so many wonderful amenities.....We arrived later than we thought so we were greeted with a wonderful tour, bottles of water and they even allowed us to borrow from their own wine collection as all the stores were closed!!!! Thank you again for a fantastic stay at your glorious chateau!!!

June retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at the Chateau was exactly what we needed as a relief from our fast paced life. The house was incredible, garden and pool is amazing and the surroundings were beautiful. I recommend the chateau to everyone -- weather family or couple or business group!

Unique Château for refrshing holidays

  • 5 of 5
We stayed about a week in the château: its situation is perfect, up the hill of a small village, with an incredible view over the region. Owners were really helpful and we felt warmly welcomed.
Good pool with shower nearby, possibility to cook pizza outside in a pizza oven, nice place to take melas outside.
The bedrooms were very nicely decorated, with clean bathroom.
The owner knows the region very well and can help you to plan your days out to visit the region: nice villages, olive oil, lavanda, and wine of course!
Strongly recommend :)
