When you step across the threshold of the Chateau Guiot, you will enter a world of extraordinary grace, elegance, and style. This lovely 17th-century chateau blends sumptuous Old World atmosphere with all modern comforts and conveniences. It is set on 12 acres of parklike grounds just outside the village of Puyricard. Perfect for a dream vacation, the chateau is also ideal for special events. The property includes a private chapel large enough for weddings or concerts. The chateau is only 4 mile north of Aix-en-Provence, so during your stay, you can enjoy day trips to the south. You can also plan excursions north as far as Avignon, Arles, and St-Remy and the Luberon Valley. Nearby activities include golf, bicycling, country walks, visits to chateaux and vineyards, and, of course, enjoying the superb restaurants in and around Aix.

From the outside, the chateau presents an elegant, classically symmetrical appearance, with immaculately maintained formal gardens, terraces, and reflecting fountains. On the grounds, there is an unusual and romantic feature: the ruins of a 17th-century archbishop's palace, which forms a picturesque backdrop to the large, heated swimming pool. A tennis court lies just beyond.

Inside, a central hallway featuring trompe l'oeil paintings leads to a grand salon, a paneled library, and a frescoed dining room. The rooms are elegant, with may original, antique furnishings, yet eminently comfortable and livable. The bedrooms have their own bathrooms and are tastefully furnished. The chateau includes 10 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, grand salon, library, games room, entertainment room, and other living areas, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen. The property has its own elevator, central heating, and multiple fireplaces.

Luxurious chateau, exquisitely furnished, with full staff, just 4 miles from Aix-en-Provence, on a parklike estate with formal gardens, chapel, pool, tennis court. Perfect for weddings, parties, or an unforgettable and romatic vacation.

A full staff of housekeeper/cook, maid, caretaker and gardener look after the property. Due to the value of the interior furnishings, the owner prefers no young children unless under the close supervision of a nanny.
