About the property

Former 19th century aviary within the property

The history of this charming castle is related to the family of Fresse de Monval and Admiral Villeneuve, opponent of Nelson and unfortunate hero of Trafalgar. Jeanne Bonaparte, little niece of Napoleon, by his marriage with the Marquis Christian de Villeneuve became the beautiful daughter of the then owner. She often stayed on vacation in these places. three rooms and two suites with historical theme are offered but also an independent cottage subject of this announcement, dependence of the castle and whose charm and originality are out of the ordinary. This small building looks a little like a small mansion with its own inner courtyard within the property. It is articulated on three levels of 20m ² each connected by a small spiral staircase: Bedroom on the 1st level, Bathroom on the 2nd level, Kitchen / Dinette / living room on the 3rd level. The rooms furnished in the spirit "loft" are very bright thanks to the huge picture windows. A small lawn terrace equipped with a garden table is immediately accessible from the kitchen and offers a very pleasant dominant view of the gardens and the valley.

The castle is located on the edge of the village of Valensole, typical village of Haute Provence famous for its lavender, not far from the famous gorges of Verdon, Moustiers Sainte Marie and bathing lakes. This incomparable and mountainous region is rich in hiking trails all along which you can get drunk sweet scents of Haute Provence. You will have free access to the relaxation area, under the chestnut almost bicentennial or are divided garden tables and sun loungers. The parking space is secured at night by the entrance gate.

You have made the choice to come here to forget your daily constraints and worries and abandon yourself to the calm and poetry of these places full of history. That's why, as in most castles and mansions, you will not find television in your room but only free Wifi access.
