Description

A 19th century chateau with its outbuildings in 9 hectares o

This property, near to Carpentras and Avignon, stands on the Monts-de-Vaucluse plain, less than 30 minutes from Avignon and its TGV train station as well as the motorway network and 75 minutes from Marseille airport. The region is dotted with villages, scattered between plateaus and plains as far as Mount-Ventoux. Sometimes on a hilltop, but always picturesque, they populate an authentic, convivial Provence, steeped in history. Local markets provide an abundance of fruit and vegetables gathered from the region's fertile soil. Country paths winding between vines and lavender fields are ideal for hiking. The main gates open on to a drive, flanked by areas laid to lawn, bordered with boxwood and two-hundred-year-old trees. A secondary drive on the west side runs alongside vast, single-storey outbuildings, with Roman tile roofs, that extend at right angles next to a vast area laid to lawn. The main drive, bordering a rose garden, goes to a carpark before leading to the chateau. The building facade, its terrace and the main, south-facing flight of steps look out over a waterfall, the parklands and a swimming pool. Behind the residence, the caretaker's cottage and a flimsier construction stand amongst the trees. A plot left as grassland in the northern section of the estate has been laid out as an additional parking area. This grassland extends predominantly on the east side of the chateau. Numerous secondary driveways, delimiting the parklands, enable residents to move around the property. A sec
