Sprawling magnificently in Rhone Valley is one of the most exquisite private properties of Provence. Welcome to the grandeur and opulence of Tourreau Castel, which was first built in 1612 before it was rebuilt in 1760. Architectured as an estate, it consists of a full-fledged castle, an adjoining farmhouse, a park and a swimming pool all within a domain of 100 acres. The jewel of the crown is of course the Chateau itself, and which has been marvellously restored using traditional colors, materials and paint techniques to impart the authentic Provencal feel and vibe. From the lush green lawns and landscape, guests will truly be awed by what awaits them inside - with plush fittings, furnishings and furniture that are all done up richly, living life of the highest order like the nobleman of yore.
There are a total of 9 bedrooms or suites as named here, to accommodate a maximum sleeping capacity of 20 guests. The first guest suite is located on the ground floor, while 2 other guest suites can be found on the first floor and accessible via their own staircases. The rest of 6 other guest bedrooms are all on the 2nd floor with ensuite bathrooms. The rooms are painted in charming pastel colors and exude a brightness from the light that streams in from the sunny skies outside.
The estate’s glorious and fully-enclosed landscape probably makes the outdoors here one of the most spectacular and enviable features. With 17 acres of fully matured parkland, elegant formal gardens, orchards, Koi carp pond, streams and a 25m X 10m swimming pool, the grounds teeming with ancient trees are just a perfect postcard picture and backdrop for photoshoots, as well as large events like wedding receptions and celebrations. There is a consecrated chapel that can host the perfect wedding, and the entirety of its outdoors can hold up to 120 people under tents to be set up here. Not forgetting a tennis court and squash room for getting the adrenaline-pump going for sports enthusiasts.
The indoors scream opulence, posh and magnificence all in the same breath and line - with gleaming floor tiles, chandeliers, rich curtains and painted walls, luxurious sofas and couches, carved mirrors and vintage paintings, and furnishings and fittings that have been acquired to capture the overall wealth of the entire place that is portrayed to guests. There are 3 reception rooms within, a formal dining hall with its long dining table and elegant chairs, the family kitchen from which all the magic of dishes happen, as well as a breakfast room to work up the appetite and a great start to the day. If this is not enough, there is also a gym room for guests who wish to have a workout or two.
The team at Mas Amor would be pleased to cater to every guest’s whim and fancies through their stay, from services like transportation arrangements and transfers, babysitting, workshops like cooking sessions and even personal therapy treatments and massage sessions. They can also help run errands and coordinate for rental of tents that may be needed for your event.
The chateau makes a perfect base from which guests can explore Provence which offers various historic and cultural sights, shopping areas, as well as fine wines and food establishments. Additionally, it is also within reach to Avignon, St Remy and Aix-en-Provence for day outings and visits.
