What You’ll Love…

The Accommodation – Straight from the pages of a storybook

Originally built in 1555 as a lodge of King Henri II of France and his mistress Diane de Poitiers, the dreamy Château de Massillan is absolutely steeped in history. Today, it’s a thoughtfully-renovated countryside oasis and the perfect launchpad for exploring the Provence region. The property features a beautiful swimming pool, a lake, a wine cellar and a restaurant serving local Provincial flavours selected by the Michelin Guide, but the jewel in its crown is the organic kitchen garden. Sprawling over 3,500 square metres, it features 500 varieties of vegetables and plants.

Inclusions – Indulge in authentic French pastries and produce from the kitchen garden

What better way to start your day than with breakfast in the orangerie or sun-kissed castle courtyard? Enjoy a buffet spread of eggs, flaky croissants and pastries served with local jams, and goodies from the castle garden.

Savour the bounty of the organic garden with an indulgent three-course dining experience together included in your package, featuring dishes such as lightly-smoked tender veal with thyme foam and vegetables from the garden, and marinated strawberries with timut pepper, lemon-basil cream and oat flakes crumble. Plus, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine each as an aperitif.

The Location – Perfect for exploring Provence and the South of France

If you’re road-tripping through France, the hotel is reachable in just ten minutes from the Autoroute du Soleil. Flying straight in? Arrive from Marseille Airport in just one hour and 15 minutes by scenic car journey, or fly in to Avignon, Montpellier or Nimes airports.

See & Do – Wineries, historic villages, golf courses and azure coastline

With its sweeping fields of lavender, sun-kissed vineyards producing world-class wines, charming old villages, olive groves and sparkling azure coastline, the South of France has long been a go-to destination for lovers of gourmet food and wine.

Hire a car to explore this exquisite pocket of the world, whether you head to the coast, enjoy a riverside picnic, go winery-hopping (the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape region is just a 30-minute drive away and Côtes du Rhône 20 minutes), head off for a game of golf, discover Le Ventoux (the mountain of the Tour de France and a truffle-hunting area), or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the charming local towns and villages of Avignon, Orange, Vaison-la-Romaine and beyond.

Gourmands can even treat themselves to a cooking lesson on site at the hotel. Select your produce from the kitchen garden before enjoying a masterclass with the chef and sharing your dishes around the table, all complemented by drops from the château’s magnificent wine cellar.

Perfect for couples, foodies and lovers of the great outdoors

The history and beauty of this French fairytale escape lends itself to romance, and lovers of fine wine and gastronomy will truly be in their element.
