Château de Fonscolombe unveils its five- star hotel
Until now strictly private, this residence, classified as a historical monument, is now a 5-star hotel.
Built in the heart of Provence in the Quattrocento style of the 18th century, this magnificent residence has belonged to two large families of humanists, that of the Marquis de Saporta and Fonscolombe. Its members are renowned in the sciences and weaponry, particularly in medicine and botany, as evidenced by their inventive friendship with Rabelais, their service with Henri de Navarre, and their correspondence with Darwin.
Beginning with the front steps, Château life is discernible in each of its 50 rooms.
The historical salons of the Château, where echoes of the sumptuous receptions of the Saporta family still resound, are decorated with Genoa leathers and the Chinese wallpapers of the 18th century.
