This summer I discovered one of the most serene place in France. We took the TGV from Paris to Avignon (so convenient and fast!) then rented a car to explore the surrounding area. We wanted to visit Chateau Neuf de Pape to see the wineries in that area and found Chateau du Martinet in the Michelin guide book. Easy to get to from Avignon by car, it was exactly the type of place we were looking for. For an authentic French countryside experience in a magificently restored chateau, this is the place! We stayed for 3-relaxing evenings and breakfast was served each morning on the veranda overlooking a picturesque landscape. We had drinks with our hosts in the sitting room each evening before driving to nearby villages to discover local food and wine. Ronald and Francoise were so sweet and most helpful with information about the surrounding area. We didnt get a chance to enjoy the outdoor pool but did walk around the expansive property. The biggest surprise for me was the most modern bathroom in our suite. The water pressure in the shower was amazing too! We will definitely make this a stop on our next visit to France!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A real château in the heart of Provence, Château du Martinet was built in 1712, burned down during the Revolution and rebuilt in 1846 partly with stone from the Carpentras ramparts. Château du Martinet was listed as a historic monument in 1945. Set in a magnificent 35-hectare green backdrop, the château had only been owned by two families before Françoise and Ronald DEVRIES arrived here. Hence why the château and park have kept a totally authentic feel and give you that rare sensation, where time seems to have stood still… The elegant decor here is the fruit of a harmonious alchemy, of rare family antiques and precious objects brought back from different travels. ... more less
