Fodor's Expert Review Château des Alpilles
Rte. de Rougadou, St-Rémy-de-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13210, France Fodor's Choice
Reached via a lane of majestic plane trees and set on 8 acres of luxuriant parkland, cypress groves, and gardens, this gracious mas and château date back to medieval times, yet underwent a complete face-lift when present owners bought the estate in the 1970s. Now the Château des Alpilles is one of St-Rémy's dreamiest spots—and that's saying a lot in this château-saturated territory. Stay in the castle (rooms are less expensive) or in one of the smaller outbuildings, including a chapel and farmhouse, some large enough for just two people yet all done up tastefully and lovingly with a modern-elegant style. The heated pool is a welcome addition, as is the excellent restaurant with a generous outdoor terrace.
