The bare stonework of this medieval castle’s exterior belies the ornate style inside.
The lounge, with its huge carved baronial fireplace, makes a cozy spot to read. The medieval armory is now a flower-filled dining room opening onto a cobblestone courtyard.
Vaulted stone corridors, an ancient dungeon, and huge underground cellars that have been excavated only recently invite exploration.
Guest rooms—many quite large—are individually decorated with antique period furnishings and Provençal fabrics.
Excellent cuisine (try anything with the local truffles).
Peaceful, quiet, and elegant atmosphere
