Chateau du Puy Tower Suites
For the first time, you can stay in the historic top-floor penthouse of the Chateau, the Tower Suites, fully renovated in 2021 in Wabi-Sabi style! With its 20 wooden windows, no place in the whole region enjoys better views over Fayence valley, with direct views of the Terre Blache Golf resort and the nearby glider airfield.. Welcome in heaven with absolute Eagles Nest views.
The Pays de Fayence is the region where the Provence and French Riviera (Côte d'Azur) are converging. It consists of nine communes in the hinterland of cities such as Cannes at the côte d'Azur. The area is known for its picture-postcard scenery characterized by bucolic charm. It is mostly protected by the nearby mountains of the sometimes harsh Mistral winds.
You'll access the region at exit 39 at the A8 Motorway via the scenic Lake of St Cassien. When approaching the villages of Tourrettes and Fayence, you'll see the Château du Puy rising up on the top of the hills. The castle comes with a great history and lofe style, which goes back to the Napoleon era of the early 19th era.
Meet local artisans and artists, stroll the narrow, cobbled streets of traditional Provençal villages as Fayence and Tourrettes ( both at walking distance of the castle), and be bewitched by the landscapes for which Provence is famous. There are a thousand and one ways to discover the treasures of Provence and we are here to let you in on all its secrets.
The Château du Puy, is nowadays a privately owned condominium, often passed on from generation to generation. Only a couple of the apartments in the castle have got a private and fully secluded terrace, such as the Tower Suites.
What makes this historic 100 square meters top-floor duplex historic penthouse with its 20 wooden windows so attractive is that it comes with an additional private southern exposed private sundeck on top of the castle's Western Tower, with unparalleled views of the whole area. A unique experience !
This whole top-floor Tower Suites ( like a true Eagles Nest) offers absolutely stunning and unparalleled views of the whole "Pays de Fayence". This historic apartment is very bright. You’ll see the sun coming up in the morning and can enjoy the sunset as well. Truly 360 degrees views - the perfect spot for photography and enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
Some medieval castles' had secret passages were designed to enable the inhabitants to escape from an enemy siege. Here it is not different. We restored a unique secret passage in the Tower Suites, details shared when you check-in.
This historic apartment you will be staying in is fully renovated and upscaled in 2021. The Luxembourg co-owners Pete & Kika turned into 5-star luxury accommodation in a complete overhaul project, whilst preciously respecting the historic character. These extensive renovation works bring all modern 21st-century comfort to the apartment one can expect when staying in a castle, whilst carefully respecting the spirit of the ancient.
This chateau is about the beauty of age and imperfection. Time itself becomes the artist because it can transform things. What’s missing in the new is often a story. There are no cuts, no traces of use, no damage. But time oxidizes things and gives the material a new skin. That makes staying with us such a unique experience.
