With 11 centuries of history and surrounded by a forest

It is not easy to find a property that contains more than 120 rooms, a living space greater than 5,000 square meters or five stairs. The house, which sells for 18 million euros, is atypical. This is the Château de Verdière, a French building listed as a historical monument dating from the 10th century and which over time has been the residence at some point of some of the most influential noble dynasties in Provence. The house, located in the Verdon natural park, in the village of La Verdière, and surrounded by a 6.5-hectare forest, is spread over five levels connected by an elevator and five stairs. It offers all the comforts of a contemporary residence, since the current owner acquired the property and restored it.

It has 120 rooms, 25 of them with private bathroom; three kitchens, several libraries and a ballroom. It houses finishes that date back to the Renaissance period, the walls are adorned with tapestries and stucco decorations are a constant. The castle is known for its 18th century plasterwork, considered one of the best and largest examples of its kind in France. Outside, the French-style gardens stand out, with fountains, statues and a greenhouse, as well as an Olympic-sized arena, a helipad, two swimming pools, a spa and more than three hectares of land suitable for planting vineyards. Less than an hour’s drive from Marseille and about 90 minutes from Saint-Tropez and Cannes, the property has panoramic views of the Provençal countryside.

House bathed by the Mediterranean in Tamarit

The original house was built in 1998 in a pine forest that surrounds a castle, that of Tamarit, a coastal town bathed by the Mediterranean.

The house, with double-height ceilings, has six bedrooms (three of them on suite room), lounge, library, dining room and parking, as well as several covered porches and terraces with views of the sea and the garden with swimming pool.
