About The Old Palace

The Old Palace is an exceptionally magnificent masterpiece which is utterly unrivalled and surpasses all expectations. Enjoying superb views over the Saint Victoire mountain, the property dates back to the 17th Century when it was built for the Archbishop with breathtakingly luxurious taste.

Today, the chateau has been elegantly restored providing all the necessary luxurious comforts whilst still maintaining its character, Provençal charm and history. The ruins of the Archbishop’s historic seat grace the extensive estate and reign next to the original chapel and Bastide. The estate’s grounds are a playground of dreams for the whole family, with a large private swimming pool (16m x 6m x 1.4m), tennis court, table tennis, boules court and boundless gardens and parklands to explore. There is also a fabulous artisan chocolate maker in the nearby village.

The charming Bastide is beautifully decorated with an extravagant hall, reception rooms, library, card room, dining room and fully equipped kitchen. It boasts 11 luxurious bedrooms and 8 bathrooms as well as a games room equipped with a billiard table and TV.

The Old Palace is a unique place for those seeking luxury and tranquillity, in the company of friends and family, in the heart of the desirable Provence, close to both the mountains and the sea. You will experience true indulgence with blissful settings and a serene atmosphere providing you with an unforgettable holiday.

The Old Palace is conveniently located just a short 20-minute drive from the centre of the beautiful city of Aix-en-Provence. The city alone is abundant with historical sights, museums, markets and restaurants, providing you with plenty of cultural and Provencal encounters. The city and surrounding area was the inspiration for countless artists including Renoir, Cezanne and Picasso who highlighted the beauty of the region.

The surrounding countryside is full of romance with breath-taking vistas, miles of vineyards, acres of lavender fields, mouth-watering cuisine and the tranquillity of all the small market towns. The Provence is the perfect region for cycling or hiking, you are also ideally located within a short drive of the coast and the beautiful Cote d’Azur, or for an adventure a little further, the Alpes du Sud are only 2hrs drive away.
