Enveloped by vineyards, olive trees, lavender, and sunshine, this opulent 19th-century domain lets you experience regal living without the royal stuffiness—self-catering kitchens encourage guests to settle into the gracious scene. Handsome rooms and public spaces are done up in understated neutral tones that complement the chateau's fancy, turreted exterior.
