Any self-respecting cave à vin will invariably feature a case or two of Chateau Routas. This award-winning wine estate in the scenic Var region of Provence has been producing tantalising reds, whites and rosés for several decades. At the centre of the estate, is the grand Domaine de Routas, a beautifully restored maison de maitre set proudly above prized vines.
At the heart of a 250-hectare estate, Domaine de Routas provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy the fresh country air and Provencal sunshine with walks, cycle ways and a 15m x 7m swimming pool. Perfect for families with little ones, the private pool has a retractable safety fence, providing security and peace of mind for parents. The villa’s large outdoor dining spaces are perfect for enjoying a glass of the estate's award-winning wine and spending time with friends and family, whilst the trees in the courtyard offer some welcome shade for those looking to escape the heat of the sun.
The interiors are tastefully designed and include many classical features, such as original stone fireplaces, old paintings and ornate chandeliers. A country kitchen has direct access to the terrace the living room is spacious and cosy, and the nearby formal dining room furnished with an original oak table. A key highlight of this villa is of course its home movie theatre, with comfy leather seating, vaulted ceilings and large cinema screen.

WHY WE LIKE IT: The large pool with retractable fence, miles of cycle tracks and a home cinema are terrific features at this villa, particularly with children in mind – although the location on an award-winning wine estate is likely to appeal to adults in equal measure.
