About the property

Amidst olive trees, the Alpilles and the Camargue region

The Gite du Chateau de Panisse has been created in what was once the caretaker's house. Completely renovated, this house of 90 square meters is very comfortable and functional.

Also ideal place to prepare for the next day's program, with countless opportunities that are offered by such renowned sites as Arles and Nimes, or Uzes Saint Remy de Provence, Avignon and its festival in July, the Camargue and the many organized feria in all surrounding cities.

This was my second stay at Panisse and it was just as lovely as the first time. The accommodations are super, the hosts delightful and the surroundings peaceful and beautiful.

Within 40 minutes you can visit many of the gorgeous Provencal villages and return to a quiet respite amongst the olive trees. The olive oil they produce is fantastic and well worth a visit just for that!

Thanks, Bernard, for making us feel welcome! Can't wait to visit again!

A dream vacation in a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning on spending some magical time in Provence this is the place to stay. The gite (little house) is very well thought, you´ll have everything you need and the best part is that Bernard will make you feel like an important guest. He´ll recommend wonderful places and amazing tips for when to visit... (although we were tourist, its always good to feel local) . I stayed in Chateau du Panisse for 2 weeks with my husband and 2 kids (3 and 1 year old). I still can´t believe how much fun the kids had, only 15 minutes drive and they were running in a castle or 40 min drive and we were at the beach surrounded by white savage horses.

Coming back to the Chateau and the smell of the olive trees was all around us, best part BBQ in the terrace having french wine and fresh tomatoes with the olive oil made at the chateau that Bernard gave us.

Thanks Bernard and AS for making us part of the family for does 2 weeks, we´ll never forget such nice hospitality!

Séjour revitalisant au coeur de la Provence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil que nous a réservé Bernard, le propriétaire du gîte, à notre arrivée. Nous avons découvert un lieu idyllique pour les amateurs de calme et d'authenticité. Le logement est très bien équipé et conforme aux descriptions du site. Sa situation est idéale pour découvrir les joyaux de la Provence (Pont du Gard, Arles, Baux de Provence, Avignon,..). Les adeptes de randonnées seront également conquis par les nombreuses possibilités offertes à proximité du gîte. Nous avons savouré notre séjour et remercions Bernard pour les précieux conseils qu'il nous a fournis, sa visite pédagogique pour nous expliquer ce lieu chargé d'histoire et les procédés de fabrication de son huile délicieuse, sa gentillesse et sa discrétion.

un excellent séjour en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une agréable semaine au château de Panisse.

Un accueil chaleureux, une location très propre et très bien équipée, (literie de qualité) un environnement une si belle région que nous aimons visiter.

N'hésitez pas... Allez passer vos prochaines vacances au "Château de Panisse" vous ne le regretterez pas.

Et si vous aimez l'huile d'Olive, vous pourrez certainement trouver votre bonheur car votre hôte est aussi Médaillé pour ses produits de qualité.

Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas les Alpilles, vous êtes idéalement situé pour visiter plusieurs sites et plusieurs départements avec de beaux villages.

Vous êtes à proximité des Baux de Provence (beau village pittoresque) , vous pourrez voir le magnifique spectacle dans les Carrières de lumière (à côté du village des Baux de Provence), Saint Rémy de Provence et son grand marché, la ville d' Arles (allez y un lundi/mercredi ou vendredi pour découvrir les courses camarguaises dans les arènes), allez faire un petit tour au château de Tarascon. N'oublions pas Nîmes et ses grandes arènes et Marseille n'est pas si loin par l'autoroute....

De toute façon, vous trouverez des documentations et dépliants dans le gîte.

Je recommande cette location à tous ceux qui veulent profiter de vacances au calme tout en étant à proximité de sites à visiter.

Wir haben anfangs Juni eine schöne und erholsame Ferienwoche auf „Château de Panisse“ verbracht. Das Haus bietet alles was man braucht – von einer gut ausgerüsteten Küche, über einen friedlichen Sitzplatz bis hin zum eigenen Gasgrill. Das Château liegt gleich neben dem Ferienhaus und trotzdem ist man ganz für sich. Bernard Foron ist ein sehr freundlicher, charmanter und humorvoller Gastgeber. Er hat sich viel Zeit genommen, um uns sein herrliches Anwesen zu zeigen – inklusive einer Degustation seines wunderbaren Olivenöls. An dieser Stelle nochmals ein ganz grosses Dankeschön!

Die Lage von Château de Panisse lädt zu vielen Ausflügen in der Umgebung ein – Avignon, Arles, die Camargue sind nur ein paar wenige Orte, welche man spielend in einem Tagesausflug besuchen kann. Wir können diesen Ort nur wärmstens empfehlen und würden uns freuen, irgendwann dahin zurück zu kehren.

Excellent location and very nice host!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay and enjoy long evenings on the shady terrasse! The kitchen was very well equipped, including dish washer and washing machine! Bernard is an extremely nice and very, very helpful host for tips on places to visit, restaurants to eat at, or even a privat tour through the Chateau to the top of the tower with view over the olive trees. Olive oil testing is a "must" and we already regret that we did not take more of the delicious black olive oil with us! Thanks for the hospitality!
