A long private driveway, lined with plane trees and shaded by cherry trees underplanted with irises, leads to the peaceful grounds of about 135 acres, surrounding the château.
Enchanting formal gardens, abundant with cypresses and ancient Cedar of Lebanon trees, are framed by olive groves, a truffle plantation, wheat and lavender fields, and woodlands.
While the house is exquisite, it's the grounds of the property which are the shining jewel, including a restored 18th century moulin (or windmill for those non-French-speakers).
Hope you enjoyed this petit voyage as much as I did. Let's vacation here.
