CHATEAU DE TOURREAU

The history of the château

In 1612, the bourgeois Tourreau family from Avignon acquired a plot of land located in Sarrians. In 1614, the chapel was built here along with a first building, and two generations later between 1750 and 1770 François Bénézet de Tourreau had the château built based on the plans by the architect Brun. Surviving the French Revolution, in which François Paul Bénézet de Tourreau was a Grey Musketeer in the service of the King of France, and weathering the ups and downs of the age, the property has been improved over the centuries and with different owners: the addition of statues of Atlas supporting the balcony, a fountain in the southern park, and many sports facilities. The château situated at the heart of 20-acre grounds possesses six salons/dining rooms along with nine suites over two floors. In the shade of a century-old plane tree lies the patio, blending birdsong with the murmur of water, and our wine cellar.

Salons/dining room

From the entrance hall, you reach the main salon bathed in sunlight coming through its large bay windows with a view over the southern park, or enter the dining room, which can seat 15 people in an authentic 18th-century setting at its wild cherry tree dining table. Also located on the first floor is the blackwood salon equipped with a billiards table and paintings depicting the property.

Our games room is equipped with an LED screen and satellite television, along with a number of movies. Take the main staircase to reach the fully renovated library with its moldings and gilding, along with the balcony offering you a 180° view over the estate.

Kitchen

An open Provençal-style kitchen, with travertine stone and an arch in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon stone by way of decoration, the kitchen is fully equipped with a professional oven range, two dishwashers and an American refrigerator. All the utensils are provided and other appliances, such as an ice maker/additional professional oven and refrigerator, are available in its annex, as well as a laundry with two washing machines and two dryers.

Patio

In the shade of a plane tree, with the sound of birds and running water, the 130-square-meter patio lends itself perfectly to lunches, meals and cocktails. You will also find our wine cellar, including a selection of local wines (Châteauneuf-du-Pape / Vacqueyras / Gigondas, etc.) and our olive oil production.

Summer kitchen

Located a few meters from the swimming pool, the summer kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, an ice maker, refrigerator and barbecue. It makes the perfect spot for lunches and meals at the pool's edge or in the shade. A dining table that seats twelve is available, along with several patios and sun loungers.

Farm

The farm section located between the swimming pool and fitness area is a stone's throw away from the château. You will find a set of seven additional suites available to rent, in a Roman patio style filled with olive trees and jasmine. Three rooms are available on the first floor and four on the second floor, all of which are equipped with identical facilities to the main rooms in the château.
