What first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions the Cote d’Azur?
Many immediately have a smile on their face and an association with old movies. However, the more affluent probably think of decadent parties on the French Riviera, its magnificent nature and staying in expensive hotels and villas.
We suggest that you give up your memories and daydreaming for now and focus your attention on the amazing castle from the 17th century. Although France is in quarantine again from a few days ago, that does not mean that we cannot fantasize about its localities that we want to visit when the situation stabilizes.
If you are willing to pay $ 8.17 million, you can be the new owner of this spectacular 6-bedroom castle, as well as a property that occupies 64 hectares of beautiful land. Hidden in lavender fields and olive groves of Provence, this charming castle is located on a hill, overlooking the Var Valley.
The entire castle measures about 6,000 square meters characterized by luxury, including an art studio, utility rooms and accommodation for caretakers. Restored during the seventies by the architect André Svetchine, who is known for redesigning the homes of Cristiano Dior, Marc Chagall and others, this property is truly magnificent.
In addition, it underwent a transformation process in 2012, when it received modern improvements, including a white kitchen and a magnificent dining room, which is characterized by a grandiose carved stone fireplace, antique roof beams and a chandelier.
In the exterior, you will find a circular swimming pool with heated water, several terraces and an outdoor bar, where you can spend both days and nights. The panoramic view of the entire Var valley, olive groves and two ancient ruins on this property will make your stay here even more interesting. When it comes to the ruins, they date from the 12th century and represent the castle of the Knights Templar and the chapel dedicated to St. Marguerite.
On this property there is another chapel, which has been transformed into a recreation room, with a large TV set and table tennis. Would you live here?
