Chateau St Victor La Coste
Chateau St Victor La Coste is magical. It is a private home decorated artistically yet flamboyantly, with an eclectic style. It is genuinely wonderful and very special, located in a sleepy Provencal village untouched by tourism. Surrounded by Côte de Rhone vineyards and forests, this is a world away from the glitz of the Côte d'Azur and is the right choice for the more discerning traveller.Check availability
There are three independent cottages and one suite to rent which are completely different but share a large well fitted kitchen and sitting room in the main chateau, and the wonderful stone pool and gardens. All cottages have their own entrances and are completely private.
The Chateau comes fully equipped with all modern comfort, high thread counts Egyptian bedding, fully functional and well-equipped kitchens (Lacanche 3 ovens), and fabulously comfortable beds but also intriguing gardens, with old deliciously scented roses, plumbago, hortensia, and jasmine leading to the old Castellas, and surrounding a very beautiful stone pool (6m x 15m) with columns and statues.
