About Chateau Durfort
This French Chateau in Southern France can accommodate up to 28 people in 12 bedrooms. The Chateau is located on the edge of the beautiful Cevennes National Park, close to Anduze, Uzes and Quissac.

Surrounding the Chateau there is excellent walking, cycling and touring routes.
The origins of the Chateau date back to the 15th century with further additions made in the early 19th Century. Originally the Chateau was a goat farm and vineyard. The stables and wine stores can still be seen. There is also the original oven used for glass blowing the wine bottles and kitchenware. The Chateau has a total sleeping capacity of 28 people in 12 bedrooms and comes with a natural water swimming pool and extensive grounds.
Chateau Durfort is composed of three buildings connected around an inner courtyard. Together they provide over 800m² of living space with 4 common lounges, 2 kitchens, 12 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Surrounding this French Chateau there are 132 hectares of land, made up of vineyards, parkland, forests and private footpaths. You arrive at the Chateau down a long 1 km private driveway. Beside the driveway there is an aqueduct that brings fresh mountain water to the Chateau.
Outside: from the inner courtyard you have access to a large terrace and large walled garden. This is the main entertainment area and it is large enough to accommodate a wedding reception, party or impromptu football or rugby match. The terrace has an enormous patio table which can seat 30 guests. The Chateau has two fresh water swimming pools, both located within the grounds. Both swimming pools have secure fencing to prevent younger guests from accessing them without an adult present. Surrounding both pools there are large sun terraces with sun loungers and chairs.
