The charm and historical past of this authentic Château will seduce visitors, just a few minutes from the picturesque village of Valbonne. Dating back to the 11th century approximately, this medieval mansion was one of the four main residences in the area, and encompasses among others, vestiges of a Roman villa as well as a Roman road. The property has been enlarged as years went by, presenting today a superb and impressive mansion of generous proportions, including several outbuildings, in the heart of a magnificent park, landscaped by Jean Mus.
