We think this is unique - an apartment in a traditional Provençal chateau that has a swimming pool, tennis court and pétanque rink and a spectacular view towards the Upper Gorge du Verdon. We often swim, go boating or walk around the nearby waters of the lower Gorge. All the rustic charm you could wish for plus a restaurant, La Remise, in walking distance. We come back year after year.
A lovely apartment in the most beautiful setting deep in the heart of Provence. The chateau itself is stunning and there are some great restaurants in the area as well as the most amazing scenery with the Gorges of Verdon and the Lac de Sainte Croix nearby. Visit the Provençal markets in the sunshine and if you're feeling energetic there are a variety of water sports nearby to enjoy. Alternatively just relax back at the chateau where you can enjoy a games of tennis, boules or lounge by the pool.
Thank you Gaynor for yet another perfect holiday!
Chateau St Laurent is a beautifully restored gem set in the idyllic Provencal countryside surrounded by lavender and sunflower fields. Whether you like kayaking on the Verdon, paddle boating on the lakes, walking the many footpaths, exploring numerous hilltop villages, checking out the local markets, eating local food in anything from cafes to Michelin starred restaurants this area has it all. For those relaxing stay at home days the chateau has its own pool, tennis court and petanque pitch with plenty of space to set up your lounger in a shady spot and read or snooze through the afternoon. We found owners of the other appartments very friendly and were given good tips about places to eat off the beaten track. The delightful apartment is characterful and airy in keeping with the ambience of the chateau and kept wonderfully cool through the hot summer days. Thank you Gaynor for enabling us all to share in this little bit of French Chateau life!
The apartment is very nice, with a great view from the living room.
The whole castle area and the castle history gives a special "wow" effect to just being there.
The small town and the surrounding nature is great for those seeking a little away from tourists or just want to enjoy nature.
Appartment was exactly as depicted on Tripadvisor.
Kitchen was well equipped for holiday stay.
Main Bedroom had good sized comfy bed.
Single bathroom which was fine as we were 2 but would be a little challenging for more than 4. Lounge/dining area is charming/rustic. Appartment is on 3rd floor , so quite a hike if you carry too much luggage but good exercise!
Lovely pool but not heated, so a little fresh in Sept. Tennis court has been newly refurbished but we didn't get opportunity to use as there is so much to do & see in the surrounding countryside.
The Chateau has many owner residents so there is quite a community if you want to socialise.
Lovely view of countryside & pool from appartment but no terrace though there is plenty of garden furniture where you can eat or drink.
Nice Bistro 100metres from the Chateau which whilst not Haute cuisine was perfectly acceptable & great value for money.
Loved the stay, would happily have stayed for a 2nd week & would definitely return.
