Trip Summary

This Hidden Gem break is perfect for those looking for an authentic, relaxing holiday at the heart of the enchanting Provençal countryside. Château de Saint Martin is a charming property from the 18th Century, owned by the same family since its construction and preciously passed on from generation to generation. The setting is truly magical and the comfortable rooms are decorated in a traditional 18th or 19th Century style.

After checking into your preferred room at the Château, a glass of sparkling wine with a pastry and a slice of cake will be served to warmly welcome you. The remainder of the afternoon and evening will be free for you to relax and enjoy your lovely surroundings.
