A lovely stone castle built in 1632, with stunning views of our garden (1,5 acres where the children can roam free), the mighty Mont Ventoux & the Ceze valley. It's extremely quiet and peaceful, but the adorable city of Uzès is only 25 minutes away.
Our beloved Château de Saint Christol is a charming stone house from the 17th century. It was built in 1632 by a cavalry officer whose talents as a painter of royal portraits was well liked by Louis XII (we even have a book that chronicles his diary entries and what happened in the house almost four hundred years ago). Over the years, different generations have made their mark on the castle’s appearance. Sometimes to keep themselves safe from harm by fortifying the house (scolding visitors with boiling oil...), other times to lower taxes by removing turrets or building “des caves” to further the wine-making business.
Behind the house, there are five or six other houses that make up the small village called “Mas Christol”, but the view from the front of the house is over the garden and the valley without any other house in sight. The garden and the grounds cover about 13 000 m2. The house is available for rent for the first time this summer. The ground floor has three bedrooms, two kitchens, and two bathrooms. The second floor has four bedrooms and a living room. The house is about 45 minutes west of Avignon, 25 minutes north of Uzès.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
We have a really nice Schindler piano in the living room for any musical guests, there's also an old, weathered playhouse for the younger children in the garden and if you bring dogs along, the garden and the estate is fertile ground for truffles. In addition, we've got peach, cherry, almond, fig, pomegranate, arbouse, kaki and medlar trees in the garden and on the estate.
It's worth pointing out that we also have a number of children's beds that can be added to the bedrooms upon request.
