Follow us and discover this extraordinary place through its 120 rooms and 5,000 m²....
The castle is essentially spread over five levels served by an elevator and five staircases.
The main courtyard serves an orangery, a gigantic vaulted room, located under the large terrace on the 1st floor, and 2 service apartments.
At the end of the courtyard, a wrought iron gate opens onto the vegetable garden and its greenhouse as well as the pleasure garden and its ponds. The entrance to the castle is through a grand hall and a majestic staircase lit by a skylight.
On the ground floor, a reception room, a large old kitchen with its fireplace and roasting pans, overlooking a French garden, a TV lounge and a professional kitchen and its outbuildings, as well as numerous storage rooms.
The first floor houses the reception rooms and are, for the most part, adorned with sumptuous plasterwork decorations. The entrance hall, lounge of curiosities, gives access to a huge terrace from where the panoramic view allows you to see the Sainte Victoire, the Sainte Baume and the Mont Faron. This is followed by a refined dining room, an adjoining equipped kitchen, a bar and toilets. From the corridor, the gallery of Forbin opens then the refreshment room with its splendid plasterwork and its marble fountain, by which one reaches the two winter salons, as well as a magnificent study decorated with unique bookcases in plasterwork, then in the summer lounge, transformed in the 19th century into a ceremonial dining room and its adjoining pantry.
