The
Experience

Look an eagle in the eye, up here on the edge of the Lubéron, safe in the stony arms of the great fortress. Its history starts with the 8th-century Saracen invasion. Peace came at last in 1741 and, blissfully, still reigns, interrupted only by bees buzzing in the lime tree; the glorious views still stretch over the tranquil valley, and in 2015 the building was awarded the prestigious VMF Historical Heritage label. Kind and interesting, Jean can tell you about the golden ratio used to build the castle; delightful Chantal speaks good English, too. The highly original rock-face pool will enchant you. Bedrooms are huge and comfortable with carefully-chosen antiques, lovely bedding and unostentatious designer fabrics. One has a deep-coral bed under vaulted ceilings and genuine 13th-century wardrobe doors. Each handsome, roomy bathroom, be it high-modern or new-old, is done with the best fittings. After visiting a pretty Provençal town or famous vineyard (Gigondas, Châteauneuf…), return to dinner of, for example, monkfish with a saffron sauce on a bed of green asparagus served on the vine-dappled terrace or in the garden.

Local points of interest from Chantal & Jean Tomasino

  • At the crossroads of the most famous vineyards of the Southern Rhône Valley ( Chateauneuf du Pape , Gigondas , Vaqueras, Ventoux, Luberon), we organize cellar visits and wine tasting in the most remarkable estates and vineyards
  • Château La Roque is a French historical heritage. Its authentic character has been kept intact over 1000 years and the renovation has preserved its authentic character and artistic dimension.
  • Four UNESCO World Heritage sites: Avignon (Popes’ Palace, St Benezet Bridge), Arles (Roman arenas), Pont du Gard, Canal du Midi are less than one hour from the castle as well as numerous worldwide known festivals (Avignon, Orange, Aix en Provence).
  • Provence is a land of flavours. Come to the numerous colorful Provencal markets and taste the delicious strawberries, the flavorful melon, grapes, goat's and sheep cheeses.
  • You will enjoy the numerous cycling routes (Mont Ventoux, Luberon) and hiking trails, from easy to experienced levels, that let you discover the beauty of the landscapes and villages of Provence. All starting from the castle. Rent of electric bikes.
  • For golf lovers, we will be happy to book a round of golf at a superb 18 hole par 72 golf, at 7km. And if you are passionate about lovely objects, go strolling in Isle sur la Sorgue (7 km), the second antique market in France (300 antique boutiques).
