Chateau d'Ansouis, Ansouis

4.0
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.

  • Very interesting tour, guided by the owner of the place, which tells the story of this castle refurnished with beautiful period features wonderfully. The mix of architecture from the middle ages to the eighteenth century is remarkable. The villa on the roof of the Dungeon and its hanging garden are particularly unusual and my unique knowledge in France. The rest of the village is interesting and typical provencal. Tour price is more than reasonable.

  • 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.
  • Good to walk
  • Very pretty village do not miss to visit the extraordinary Museum
