Castell d'Agoult is an exceptional property situated in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt villages of the Luberon. This magnificent domain offers you the opportunity to experience the beauty of 900 years of history in the heart of the Luberon National Park.
The Chateau allows you to travel through the ages: from the 12th century tower through the Salle des Gardes of the 14th century to the Main Façade and Grand Staircase of the 17th century.
The Chateau offers over 1000 m2 of living space, and with 2 lounges and dining rooms, 2 kitchens, 8 bedrooms including 2 suites and 7 bathrooms it can accommodate twenty people. Although this might seem imposing it is surprisingly cozy for a medieval castle, and the chateau actually has a distinct intimate feel to it.
The Chateau’s garden is centered round a circular lawn surrounded by rock and several terraces. The main terrace is a large area for relaxing or enjoying an aperitif. It links the Chateau entrance and the Clock Tower and overlooks the garden and the pool.
A second terrace is located on the second floor of the Chateau and gives a superb view of the village skyline. The swimming pool is hidden from view beneath hackberry trees.
Built in the late Renaissance period, the spectacular spiral staircase with the majestic harmony of its stone balustrades is the link between Middle Age and Renaissance and one of the major attractions of the Chateau.
The Grand Salon with its eighteenth century Provencal stucco is usually the most used room in the Chateau. A large library can satisfy all curiosities and will attract lovers of reading. A fireplace adds a note of comfort during the winter evenings.
The dining room adjoins the Grand Salon and the kitchen. Its 4 meter table will welcome at least 14 people to eat there comfortably, and is directly connected to the Salle des Gardes.
The kitchen of the Chateau ends the First floor and has a table to welcome 8 people, ideal for children, breakfast or aperitif to encourage the cook. Legend has it that the rock carving is an entrance to an underground passage...
The Grand Bureau, on the Second floor, with its 4 meter table can be accomodated for a banquet as it is directly linked to the Salle des Gardes.
Adjoining the tower, the Salle des Gardes dates from the 14th century and was part of the original fortress. Its huge fireplace, large enough to stand in, was a vital source of heat for the soldiers in a room which was originally open to the elements. Its blazing fires create a unique atmosphere and will delight everyone. La Salle des Gardes has a section with a glass ceiling linking the Middle Ages to the late Renaissance period. This is another special place for candle-lit dinners.
There are 8 bedrooms in all. Seven of them (including 2 suites) are in the castle, with six of the bathrooms. Adjacent to the castle, next to the summer kitchen, is an ensuite bedroom, bathroom, living area and games room where a dormitory can be arranged for the youngest.
The property is situated 40kms to the East of the papal town of Avignon, not far Bonnieux, Gordes and Rousillon, in the heart of the Luberon National Park. Marseille Airport is at an hour's drive.

Everything was PERFECT!!! Honestly, words escape me to describe our time at the Chateau. We stayed in the bedroom off the large dining room on the second floor, every night I looked out the window into the night with the bell tower in the foreground and the lights from Luminere in the background. Never have I seen such a clear sky with the moon and stars... breath taking! And in the morning the view was even better.Everyone had a wonderful time, gathered every morning to check their emails in the living room and enjoy warm croissants (thank you, Joel) and coffee. At lunch time we would either eat left overs from the night before or walk to Cafe de la Poste for a great meal!!! At night we had Chef Ronald for two meals, the cook for one, La Terrase for one, and one night the groom and his best man cooked an amazing meal on the two grills and the ovens in both the kitchen and pool house :) Joel put tables and chairs together and got us lamps and we had a wonderful time under the stars.The wedding dinner in the large dining room with candles and the wedding cake in the Guard's room with a million candles. Just magical.I could go on and on but I would definitely suggest the Chateau to anyone wanting to spend special time with family and friends at a beautiful place in the south of France. Sincerely,
