The Experience

Look an eagle in the eye, up here on the edge of the Lubéron, safe in the stony arms of the great fortress. Its history starts with the 8th-century Saracen invasion. Peace came at last in 1741 and, blissfully, still reigns, interrupted only by bees buzzing in the lime tree; the glorious views still stretch over the tranquil valley, and in 2015 the building was awarded the prestigious VMF Historical Heritage label. Kind and interesting, Jean can tell you about the golden ratio used to build the castle; delightful Chantal speaks good English, too. The highly original rock-face pool will enchant you. Bedrooms are huge and comfortable with carefully-chosen antiques, lovely bedding and unostentatious designer fabrics. One has a deep-coral bed under vaulted ceilings and genuine 13th-century wardrobe doors. Each handsome, roomy bathroom, be it high-modern or new-old, is done with the best fittings. After a day of wonderful hiking and cycling nearby, visits to pretty Provençal towns and famous vineyards (Gigondas, Châteauneuf…) return to dinner of, for example, monkfish with a saffron sauce on a bed of green asparagus served on the vine-dappled terrace or in the garden.

We had a wonderful stay in Chateau la Roque, It was truly special and Chantal and Jean were charming and welcoming and the food Jean cooked for us was delicious.

Helen, Shropshire

Property has true character and soul as shown on it's accurate website. Situated among beautiful grounds on hilltop overlooking orchards and vineyards in most beautiful part of Provence. Stayed in "vaults" room - large, beautifully furnished, big comfortable bed, huge full bathroom, and incredible views. Meals perfectly prepared using best, fresh, organic, local products. Service and housekeeping impeccable throughout. On-site residential owners, Chantal and Jean, not only meet but will exceed all your expectations. This is the real Provence, do not look further, just stay here!
