Halfway located between Cannes and St Tropez, the Roman town of Fréjus and its wonderful views definitely ranks amongst the gems of the South of France.

Easily accessible by all means, it is conveniently situated only a 10- minute drive from the TGV station at St Raphaël. Home to a famous amphitheatre and a 5th  Century Cathedral, Fréjus is well known for its rich artistic and architectural heritage.

Another credit to this charming Mediterranean town is its long sandy beaches. Imagine two kilometres of postcard-like scenes). These can be found just five minutes away from Château Provençal.

The popular St Maxime can be reached in twenty minutes, much like the famous beaches and the bustling boutiques of Cannes. No need to go as far though, as lovely cafés, restaurants and even a bi-weekly Provence market are all within a short drive.

Whether it is a relaxing retreat or a busy South of France adventure, that is sought, Château Provençal’s location is perfect.


Built in 1904 by Lord Amherst of London, Château Provençale has kept its beautiful original architectural features. The job of adding modern facilities, without affecting its former beauty, was well executed. Renovated with a ‘haut de gamme’ clientele in mind, it offers ultimate comfort in an outstanding setting and caters perfectly for the luxurious taste.

Four floors and 2000sqm, this property is spacious, to say the least. Château Provençale can accommodate up to 32 people in 15 refreshing bedrooms.

The pool gardens face south--perfect for soaking in as much sun as possible during the day. They also make for a very ideal setting for receptions.

Antiques mix with contemporary themes inside, whilst the historic courtyard with its surrounding cloisters, offers an atmospheric and romantic outdoor space perfect for dinners and parties. In case of unseasonal weather, both indoor and outside dining options are available with elegant banqueting furniture.

The lovely Mediterranean gardens and large infinity swimming pool contribute to making Château Provençale a beautiful, peaceful and romantic residence.

This stunning four-story historic residence has security cameras, security gates, private parking spaces for approximately 20 cars, and a helipad.

With twelve luxury en suite bedrooms, two charming double bedrooms and one family bedroom--all lovingly decorated and benefitting from magnificent views (the Mediterranean and surrounding costal cliffs, forests of fragrant pine trees, or the stunning valleys of Esterel)--this château offers it all.

The capability to accommodate in style up to 32 guests, makes this the ideal location to hold weddings, events, vacations, or retreats for large groups.
