South of France vacation chateau - Manoir d'Argens is a luxurious manor house with private pool, set within a well-known wine estate, surrounded by vineyards in the heart of the Var region. An impressive 100-year-old sycamore drive leads you up to the house, which was built in 1830 and was once owned by the Grimaldi family of Monaco. It has been sympathetically refurbished in recent years by the owners who have ensured that the property retains its character whilst offering all modern facilities.

The nearby village of Le Muy has two of the best outdoor markets in the region, on Thursday and Sunday mornings, and La Motte offers local shops and restaurants. Les Arcs sur Argens, slightly further on, has a very attractive medieval town centre. Activities available locally include the wine cave for tastings and tours adjacent to the house, marked walking routes around the estate, tennis, golf, riding, hiking in the Rouet forest, rock-climbing in the Gorges du Verdun and quad biking.

You cannot help but have a wonderful holiday in this beautiful part of Provence: situated half way between the Parc Naturel Regional du Verdon and the French Riviera.  This a world apart from the bustle and the crowds of St Tropez, which nevertheless is close by when you want to enjoy a different pace of life. The beautiful university town of Aix-en-Provence is only an hour away.  Or you might like to spend time visiting some of the local, picturesque villages, relaxing in pavement cafés, or enjoying the excellent cuisine that France has to offer.  Sainte Maxime is an easy 30 minute drive from this South of France vacation chateau and from here you can take a ferry across to the attractive and lively resort of St Tropez, thus avoiding the summer traffic! 

Insider Tips

Staying at the Manoir d'Argens would be to relax in the lap of luxury! The house is beautifully furnished and very comfortable, and completely surrounded by vineyards belonging to one of the Var region's major wine producers.  Wine tasting will be one of the highlights of your stay here with the Cave adjacent to the house (the owners offer a 10% discount on purchases of their wine!). If you enjoy golf there is an 18-hole course at St Endreol just 2.5 miles away, but if you would prefer to visit a spa, try Spa Anne Semonin, again 2.5 miles from the chateau. There are several restaurants worth visiting in the surrounding area: I can particularly recommend the Hostellerie Les Gorges de Pennafort. Another very nice place to eat is Bastide des Magnans in Vidauban.

Please note: access to the villa is via a driveway shared with the estate Cave.  This is housed in buildings attached to one side of the house, but is separated by a wall and hedging; there may be some minor loss of privacy in the front garden (gateway to Cave) but the rear garden and pool are completely private. For wine lovers this proximity could be a real bonus!
This property is almost 5 miles away from the A8 - this means excellent access to the whole region, but in a south-easterly wind some traffic noise may be heard!
