What you should know about this house


Amenities and special features of this house

Exceptional historic property, this sumptuous Castel of approx. 3 300 sqm, which origins date back to approx. 1 500 years, benefits from rare and panoramic views of the Lake of Sainte Croix.
Historically, it was first a Gallic oppidum which became le Castrum d’Aquina – a fortified Roman place- built from 1021 and possessed by the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Victor in Marseille.
A second rebuilding began under Henri IV, by Balthazar de Gauthier, lord of area from 1596 to 1641, on the substructures of an older edifice, a seigneury belonging at the time to the Baux, then to the Blacas.
Then, between 1720 and 1750 the edifice, then property of the Sabran, will benefit from major renovation works. The Aiguines seigneury was then part of the Clapiers, descendants of Vauvenargues.
The 20 hectares of land, perfectly nestled in the heart of the Gorges du Verdon (largest canyon in Europe), offer terraces gardens, parks, vineyards, fountains, as well as a heated swimming pool with stunning views and a helipad offering a quick transportation, in 15 to 20 minutes to Saint Tropez or to Cannes.
Inside, the fitting is particularly elegant; numerous elements are classified as historical patrimony; exceptional rooms as the dining room, decorated with golden marks or the amazing wrought iron ramp running on 4 levels in one piece.
Comfort and elegance with natural and casual living; low maintenance fees or expenses required as the different restorations were realized in accordance with professional standards.

Var: Location and surroundings of this property

The luxury real estate market at the Côte d’Azur is one of the most attractive in the Mediterranean area.
Whilst 'idyllic lifestyle and escape from city life' remains the primary reason people wish to purchase property in the French Riviera, due to the global economic situation, clients are also looking to buy secondary homes in the South of France as it is a stable investment and intelligent retirement plan.

The Var is located at the gate of the French Riviera and the “Alpes de Haute Provence”: it is one of the most touristic French departments (2nd after Paris) and one of the greenest (2nd most planted French department). The diversity of relieves and landscapes, from the sea to the mountain, makes it a privileged site. Its Mediterranean climate and its exceptional sunshine all year long (approx. 3 000 hours) explain part of the sweetness of its art of living… Quietness and tranquility of its old perched villages in altitude are here discovered. There are small hills and huge forests offering truffles and mushrooms but also where live wild boars, deers and hinds.
