Imposing wine estate on the outskirts of Avignon
The history of this château is fascinating:
Originally, in the 13th century, this simple fortified farmhouse was intended to provide shelter for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. The Popes entrusted the management of the estate to the Carthusian monks.
Several times destroyed and rebuilt, the castle became the property of the Counts of Felix in the 18th century, when it took on its present appearance.
The chateau, with its 2 towers and crenellated walls, offers almost 700 m² of living space with numerous living rooms and reception rooms.
Situated at about 300 m from the castle, a house of contemporary construction offers around 250 m² and overlooks a vast swimming pool of nearly 400 m².
The farm buildings extend over approx. 900 m² and include 4 staff apartments.
The winery has a capacity of 300 hl in concrete and stainless steel vats. The winery functions well in its current state but needs to be modernised.
The vineyard is in one contiguous plot of about 40 ha, of which 34.5 ha are AOP Côtes du Rhône and 5.5 ha are IGP.
The entire vineyard is trellised, grassed every other row. About 85% of the vineyard is planted with black grape varieties (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsaut, Merlot, and Cabernet).
