From sweeping, tranquil vistas and castles from the Middle Ages to cosmopolitan neighborhoods in Paris and Cap d’Antibes, one of the wealthiest and most luxurious locations in the world, some of the most charming properties can be found right here in France. Here are five of the best.
1. Luxury Chateau in Pau
This Pau estate’s 1903 chateau sits at the end of a long avenue bordered by centenarian oak trees. Notable features of the chateau include stained glass windows, a smoking room, two bedrooms in the master suite, and a wine cellar. The property also has various ancillary buildings, including a five-bedroom gate house; a chalet; a stable block with 16 horse boxes, a tack room, and a six-car garage; an 18th century barn; a hangar for machinery; a former pigeonnier; and a former farmhouse. Owners have potential to run a farm or equestrian business, but the property is also perfectly suitable as a private residence.
2. Stunning Contemporary Villa in Cap d’Antibes
This 100% decorated and furnished Cap d’Antibes villa looks just like a holiday retreat, but one that you’ll have the luxury of waking up in every single morning. Each of the four bedrooms has an en-suite shower room, the kitchen is fully equipped, and you can stretch out in front of the living room’s fireplace or on one of the roomy terraces. There’s also an infinity pool, a private garden with Mediterranean plants, an independent apartment and extra parking for guests.
3. Beautiful Chateau in the Heart of Provence
Set on a preserved site in Lorgues, in the heart of Provence, this 15-bedroom chateau is charming and authentic, with a stunningly landscaped French garden. The home’s surrounding property is the true draw, though, with a guest house, stables and a chapel. Relax at the pool or spa, challenge your spouse or kids to a game on the tennis court, and stroll around the olive grove, which produces about 600 litres of oil each season.
4. Luxury Five-Bedroom Villa in Neuilly-sur-Seine
This five-bedroom villa in Neuilly-sur-Seine, with city views and French windows that open onto a rosebush garden, looks like it’s leapt right off the pages of a magazine. Features include a gallery entrance, double living room with fireplace, and walk-in closets. There are also game and sports rooms; a wine cellar; and a separate, two-level staff house. Though set in a suburb of Paris, this mansion is in a private location where you can enjoy the balcony and shaded terraces in peace.
5. Historic Medieval Style Chateau in Vienne
Updated with modern comforts like underfloor heating, internet and an equipped kitchen, this 12th and 15th century chateau in Vienne still retains its historic, medieval style. The kitchen and great hall can support 100-person formal dinners or 200-person concerts, and the on-premises tavern serves both visitors and locals. The property also has space for larger functions and weddings. The home includes 16 bedrooms, a cinema, library and billiards room, plus gorgeous grounds with four lakes, a river and multiple wells.
