Pretty new on the Provence hotels scene, Le Chateau de la Gaude which is the one we all remember from the Pagnol's movie "Le Chateau de ma mere" was looking like a ruin until a local philanthropist invests millions into a complete lifting and renovation. After years of transformation, this amazing and ultra charming castle opened its doors last year with the objective to become one of the finest places in Europe and after an incredible mid week break there, I'm pretty sure that the objective will be soon reached. Imagine the Provence countryside all around... an incredible landscape punctuated cypresses, lavender fields, the vineyards of the estate (the Rose wine from the estate is absolutely delicious...), the song of the crickets and the breathtaking view on the Ste Victoire's mountain, the beloved mountain of Paul Cezanne... hard to find such a fantastic place like this one at only 10 minutes by car from exciting Aix en Provence. When we arrived, we quickly noticed that the place is still not yet fully completed and we were quite worried but we haven't been disturbed by the construction. Justly, we surprisingly took part of the birth of this stunning property exploring what's gonna be ready next and can easily imagine how incredible will be this estate after a few more months. Soon the pool will be ready in a more than glorious environment surrounded by olive trees, manicured grass and stunning pieces of art. Le Chateau de la Gaude like the neighbor uber luxury Villa La Coste is oriented into art and it's a passionating to walk across the huge garden to explore all these contemporary pieces, most representing "skulls" but also an oversized shark. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by a professional young team full of smiles. They immediately served us a drink and make check in procedures quick and easy. The manager, Vinciane, personally escorted us to our magnificient suite in the main castle (the rooms and suites are equally located in the castle itself or in a Provence style dependance full of charms). Our prestige suite on the second floor was stunning, greatly decorated with a contemporary style and a few pieces of art giving all the grandeur to this lovely retreat. View over the gardens and iconic labyrinth was exceptional and bathroom made with white marble just immaculate. A fresh bottle of Rose and a few calissons waited for us and we fully enjoyed this nice touch. Comfort was equally perfect with hard to leave beds and excellent soundproofing. For food lovers, choice will be hard between La Source, the gastro brasserie chic and trendy with a cool, friendly and efficient service and of course a delicious food or the gastronomic restaurant Le Art located on the ground floor of the castle and opening onto a fabulous terrace for summer dinners and offering a Michelin star Michelin experience obviously largely acclaimed but we haven't had the chance to give a try. We were pretty satisfied with our dinner at La Source and escaped to Aix the other evenings but next time we will definitively try Le Art... In the morning, the moment not to be missed is the breakfast. Pretty much the best breakfast we experienced with the most yummy and crispy ever viennoiseries and an outstanding local pastry named Pompe à l'huile d'olive and everything you can imagine from the best morning feast and even more. Afterwards, to burn the calories, there is a lovely way just outside the estate named chemin des chenes which will drive you straight to your Provence dream... So, yes, this property has actually all the potential to become one of the nicest properties in the world even if at this stage, there are still a few things to improve like a more polished service, an attention to details and a more manicured garden. But even if I'm such a demanding guest, I can give already 5 points to this little paradise in Provence...

My wife and I booked this chateau for one night while we were living in Provence. For tour initial email to our last "au revoir", we were both blown away by this experience. We showed up and were upgraded to a deluxe room from a classic room. The room was huge and beautiful with an enormous soaking tub in one room, a rain forest shower in the other that could fit 5 people, and an incredibly comfortable bed. A bottle wine from the chateau, some fresh fruit and a snack awaited us upon arrival. We walked around the well-maintained grounds and were able to go through the vineyards and the gardens. We had cocktails at the outdoor bar and Max is a maser mixologist. He also speaks excellent English which was a plus for us. He made some great drinks and has one of the best old-fashioned I have had outside of the US. Max is a fantastic bartender and a must when you visit for dinner or if you are staying the chateau. Dinner at La Arte is a must. It is pricey, lunch options seemed more reasonable, but you will not be disappointed. The outdoor patio is tastefully decorated with simple lighting and no table is too close to another. You feel as though you are eating at your own private Chateau. They offer some small tastings to start and throughout the evening which added to the gastronomic experience. The wait staff was friendly, not pushy with food or wine choices (they have an extensive cellar with prices ranging from 50 euros to 12,500 euros) and we spent all night sitting at our table. My duck foie gras was the best foie gas I have ever had and the pigeon was cooked 4 different ways. My got a shrimp dish to start and lobster for her entree. She was pleased with both. Desserts were excellent as well and we were full when retired to our room. Breakfast is part of your stay and it is a full petit dejeuner. Breads, fruits, cheeses, eggs if you desire, coffee, teas and juices, it is a full incredible breakfast. A wonderful way to start our day. The wine tasting room is beautiful and well worth a visit to sample wines from the region. The one down side was the chateau is newly opened in July and they are still doing much construction to get ready for 2020. There will be a spa and pool, a new bistro and a bakery that they hope will be ready by the spring or summer. While there was a lot of work going on it did not interfere with our visit and only got us more excited to return in the future and see the chateau's vision completed. There was also only one other guest room being used so I curious what it will be like when other people are there. This was an anniversary my wife and I will never forget and so much was due to the wonderful staff and beauty of this elegant chateau. I hope other people will get to experience this amazing place and share a similar experience to ours. Merci

Just 20 min from Aix TGV Gare. You’ll come across this beautiful estate (an officially registered 18th century Chateau). Very well preserved from outside and modernized from inside. Art work is nothing short of breathtaking and daring. Service received was 5 star both at the hotel and the amazing L’Art restaurant. The food was a journey of its own! Special thanks to the chef and his team for bringing all the wonderful flavors to our table. Additionally, special thanks to Nizar, Tomomi and Vacian for giving us royal service! Definitely coming back again. The place is highly recommended!
