Provence is not really known for "castles" like you might find in Germany and Spain. There are large chateaus, but most are in ruins.

Check out the Chateau of the Marquis de Sade in Lacoste.

It's not an area known for castles. Of course, there are some, there are all over France, but one doesn't typically go to that part of France to see castles. Roman ruins, markets, wine, lavender, yes...but not castles. I wouldn't pay anyone to take me to a "castle" in Provence.
