I originally wanted to stay at the Chateau but saw it was full online so we booked accommodation in Castellane. However, we thought it would still be nice to visit for a lunch reservation and within 10 minutes of my email to the Chateau I received a phone call from the owner Monsieur Thomas to advise we could indeed come for lunch, and he also had a room available (such a shame for us as we had since made other arrangements!). This is outstanding service!

We drove up to the Chateau through the small village of Trigance (there is plenty of parking at the restaurant), and it was a beautiful location overlooking the countryside to the mountains and valleys. We were initally the only guests for lunch and had the whole Chateau terrace to ourselves - a great stroke of luck, and we assumed that due to the location being near to the Gorges du Verdon most hotel guests were out for the day and returned for evening dining.

There is also the option to dine inside the armoury room which would be atmospheric and stunning in the evening, however on a sunny day we were happy to sit on the terrace outside.

Mr Thomas was friendly and hospitable, and the waitress was prompt, efficient and friendly also. There was a selection of menus (26,50€, 40€ and 50€ as well as 'a la carte') and we chose the cheapest 3-course menu. The waitress brought a 'chateau surprise' amuse-bouche which was courgette and salmon mousse and very tasty. My lunch companion's entree was Provençal caillette (a kind of paté) served with salad leaves and a delicious mix of olive oil, capsicum and capers. My entree was cucumber gazpacho with croutons and was the best cucumber gazpacho I have eaten in my life - light, refreshing and fluffy almost a whipped consistency.

We both decided on jellied duck leg with vegetables for our main course - the duck was cooked perfectly and served with a tasty pea puree, sugar snap peas, courgette, carrot, mung bean sprouts and red peppercorns. Delicious. Our dessert was a fruit salad consisting of apple, passionfruit, kiwi, strawberry, and pistachio nuts and served with a honeycomb brittle, lemon sorbet and grissini. It was really tasty, however it probably could have omitted the grissini as this was quite dry for a refreshing dessert.

We also had a carafe of water, and 2 glasses of Chateau Minuity and the bill was so reasonable it was definitely worth the 25 minute drive from Castellane. The previous night we had eaten at a 'bistro' type restaurant on the main square in Castellane and paid slightly less for sub-standard food and average service - my recommendation would be to drive the short distance to Trigance, enjoy a special dining experience at this lovely Chateau with great food, service and views and count yourself lucky that you can eat here in a lovely setting instead of crammed in a restaurant with no atmosphere with other tourists eating pizza!

Family Tip: We didn't bring our 20-month son on this trip however I noticed that the Chateau has lots of steps so isn't particularly stroller-friendly and definitely not for people with reduced mobility. The staff seem very accommodating and helpful and I noticed that they offer a baby-changing table for the downstairs toilets - ask them prior to needing it at the reception.

It is a very nice old reconstructed chateau located in a beautiful spot. The Chateau is in on the top of a hill, overlooking the small town of Trigance, the valley and the mountains that form the Verdon Gorge. Having breakfast on the terrace on a sunny day was a wonderful experience. Arriving by car was not difficult and there is enough parking place.
The breakfast was very good, with very nice touches. Dinners were really good, in spite sometimes some unexperienced waiters were somewhat annoying to tourists. On the other hand the rest of the staff was wonderful, helpful and graceful.
Rooms were good including bathrooms, modern and well kept. It is a good spot to be based to explore the Verdon Gorge from a beautiful place. Walking to the tiny village of Trigance is also very nice.

A quirky collection of styles and rooms which we enjoyed as a one-off on a journey to the South of France. We loved its situation and style and the evening dinner was very good quality and value. Definitely NOT a venue for anyone with mobility problems as steps are uneven and narrow. We had a 'valley view' room which was probably worth the extra. Breakfast was exceptional for France and came on a large tray with lots of little extras. Not cheap but good value. Go again? - Probably, if we were in that area.

This is a very unigue place to stay. It is a restored castle on top of a mountain with outstanding views. Service throughout was perfect making this the most wonderful place to restore and relax. The 2 junior suites are akin to a 2 bedroom accomodation with large bathrooms, private terraces and views a plenty from any window. Breakfast was delivered to our door in the morning to enjoy on our private terrace.The restaurant was also a unique experience with fabulous food and wine. A short walk downhill takes you to the very small town where you can enjoy some authentic pizza or bakery treats with the locals on the outside tables. Our only regret is that we did not have a couple more days there. Upon leaving we drove the gorgeous mountain roads to Grasse to make perfume/colonge at the Galimard Perfumerie. That was a real highlight of our trip. I highly recommend the Chateau Trigance and hope you get to include it in your travels. you will not regret a stay here.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, get a suite but remember there are only 2 of them. We were a party of 3 which included our 17 year old son. We had the blue suite which is slightly better than the pink one.

Stayed one night while exploring the area again. Incredible position with commanding views all around, above a small village near the Verdon gorges. Excellent base for touring.

We had one of the suites with a small balcony. Sitting room rather gloomy, but roomy bedroom and bathroom. Fittings a little passe, but authentic. Good breakfast on terrace.

Dinner in atmospheric hall was very good, almost too filling on the more expensive menu. Staff all very pleasant.
