Valérie Reboul’s philosophy is that ‘luxury is exquisite, exclusive and unapologetically slow’ on French holidays and this is typified at every turn throughout Chateau d’Estoublon. From the attentive service provided by the full complement of staff, who welcome guests like long-lost family members, to the sumptuously refined interiors and manicured gardens, this is a Provencal paradise without rival.
The 500 acres of grounds, comprised of award winning olive groves and renowned vines, also include a small chapel, boules court and a heated 20m swimming pool and the option of arriving by helicopter.
Surrounded by several hundred acres of wine and olive oil producing land as well as woodland, parkland and a private lake, the interiors of the chateau feature hand-painted silks by De Gournay and wallpaper by Christian Lacroix. Elegant yet relaxed, the English style bar and dining spaces provide venues for dinners and celebrations, with a butler or wine waiter on hand to cater to every whim.
Overlooking the rose garden, Chateau d’Estoublon provides guests with numerous places to relax indoors, notably with the billiards room, hammam, gymnasium and cinema on the upper floors, all accessible by an elevator. Each of the ten bedrooms has been individually designed, with some reflecting the hunting background of the chateau, yet also with a playful nod to the owner’s family who founded the Breitling watch company. All rooms are provided with minibars, safes, TV, Nespresso machine and hotel style amenities and linen of the highest quality.
