Property Description

Built in the heart of a perched village in the Haut Var, a refuge for lovers of old stones, this Chateau was the holiday home of a noble Provencal family in the early 17th century. Awarded for its exemplary restoration, it dominates the valley where a gentle landscape of vines and olive trees stretches as far as the eye can see.Impressive, elegant and unique, with its majestic entrance and staircases, its vast living and dining rooms open onto the gardens, its imposing kitchen, its bedrooms and its bathroom-boudoir spread out under the attic, it breathes a harmonious art of living under the sun of Provence.Having belonged to different families: the Baron d'Hesmivy, Mr Antoine Emerigon, a rich merchant from Marseille who was appointed controller of the chancellery at the court of Provence of Louis XVI; Mr Edouard Laurent de Coriolis took possession of the castle after the death of A. Emerigon in 1785.Left abandoned for several decades, the owners' heirs sold it to the current owner in 1992. The castle has benefited from a remarkable restoration that preserves its authenticity.It has an exceptional view of the Esterel, the Sainte-Baume and the Maures massif. It is a large Provencal building with a four-sided roof covered in hollow tiles, remarkable for its monumental entrance, its restored interior decoration and its vast lounges and dining rooms opening onto the gardens, terraces and ponds, a belvedere over the agricultural plain of Aups.The restoration of the chateau and its grounds took more than 10 years, taking into account the doctrines and techniques of conservation-restoration with all the requirements that this type of construction requires.The programme of works was based on the essential condition that the authenticity of the architecture be preserved, and that no concessions to modernity be visible (electric ducts, floor heating, etc.). The interiors have restored the Italian and Tuscan atmosphere desired by the owners.The quality of this restoration was rewarded in June 2008 by the VMF - Heritage Label "Prix des Vieilles Maisons Francaises".The property consists of a large 17th century Provencal building and annexes with gardens, terraces and ponds: - The main 17th century building, with two floors over a basement, consists of On the ground floor: a monumental hall with a large staircase, a living room, dining room, small living room, large kitchen, back kitchen, master bedroom, dressing room and shower room, guest toilet, service entrance, office, storerooms.On the first floor: a large landing, three suites with three bathrooms, a lounge, a laundry room, a large suite opening onto a terrace with bathroom/wc.On the second and attic floors: seven bedrooms and six shower rooms; In the basement: cellars, a storeroom, a small chapel, two flats, three annexes overlooking the courtyard.Adjoining land with a total surface area of 9,101 square metres, landscaped with a 6 x 6 metre pond.Its history, its surface, its restoration with very high quality services and materials make it a unique property.For lovers of nature and authentic history.
