Castle Tourist Spot
Going back to the birth of Jesus Christ, Chateau d'Ansouis has been in existence for over 2,000 years. It was initially a fortress in the Aigues Valley. The architecture of the castle has soft features. It is surrounded by lush green gardens, terraces and groves. This magnificent castle in the region of Luberon has been renovated to meet the needs of the public. Inside is a well-designed staircase, a series of elegant furniture rooms. It gives the feeling of walking amidst medival era and the Old Regime. The seventeenth century welcomed the new residents of the castle, post all religious and political wars. The Escalis were succeeded by Villeuneuve Ansouis a Aix in 18th century. That is how the castle derives its aristocratic lifestyle.

  • We are very disappointed because we arrived at a door closed at 15.05 h max. The morning a lady told us that the Castle opened at 15: 00. Specially, we went back to the village to visit. We didn't know that it was only with a guided tour. I think they could at least wait 5 minutes before starting. Too bad!

  • The visit is commented by the owner of the premises. It allows to discover the architectural curiosity of these castles nested without forgetting the Hermitage and its hanging garden 80 m at the top of the tower. The Interior has been (re) furnished with love with very beautiful pieces. 1 h 30 very interesting.

  • Elegant southern façade added to a military and medieval fortress. Terraces and gardens around the castle, with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. Lovely furnishings and tapistries ornate the rooms. Located in a small, but beautiful traditional village of Luberon with tiny streets (better, than the most famous in the area, like a mini-Gordes).
  • Very nice and typical little village from Provence.
  • Great for a small walk a quiet village not much of the worlds... If you are in the corners see absolutely...
