River House

Vallabregues, Alpes-Maritimes

Just exploring this beautifully restored home is a treat - arrange painting or cookery courses, go riding in the Camargue, walk by the Rhône


8 bedrooms


Sleeps 18


Remarkable… a chance to step into a slice of aristocratic Provençal life. Parts of the manor are 14th century, the latest additions 18th. And it’s vast. Under soaring ceilings, on ancient tiles and parquet, with cavernous fireplaces, rooms are full of antiques, Persian rugs, art, books and brocante collected by the owner on his travels. He bought River House a few years ago, it had been in the same family for eight hundred years, and he’s passionate about it. Among the narrow streets of sleepy Vallabrègues, through tall iron gates, you sweep in on a circular drive; like arriving on a film set. The careful restoration and styling combine comfort and authenticity beautifully. There are now eight bathrooms (there were none); big, beamed bedrooms, most with four-posters (and a dorm for children). Masses of communal space too in chandeliered dining and sitting rooms; a library, an office; first floor balcony and chapel and a fabulous, cook’s kitchen with Iznik tiling. Outside: shady sitting and eating areas, a sunny courtyard with small, deep salt water plunge pool. Wander into the village to eat; visit markets, arrange a course…
