About Castle Culas

The estate consists of three independent apartments hosting up to 18 guests, making it ideal for groups of families travelling together. Each apartment has been uniquely renovated to include all the comforts of home, not to mention superbly designed bathrooms with craftsman-style features, well-appointed kitchens, elegant sitting rooms, and charming outdoor lounge and dining spaces.

Set on 11 private acres, guests will enjoy relaxing dips in the private pool, plus hiking trails with views that will never be forgotten.

The chateau's hilltop location provides ultimate peace and tranquillity, with no neighbours in sight. However, when in need of a bit of culture, the village of Saint Andre les Alpes is just 2km away, with shops, delicious cuisine, and village tours.

The highlight of the area is Lake Castillon, with pristine turquoise waters that make it one of the most popular water sports lakes in France. The chateau not only offers beautiful aerial views of the lake, but exclusive access to a private beach as well!
