The 23 ha estate sits in a privileged position on the border of a forest, free from any construction. Comprising 3 ha of vineyard in IGP Côteaux du Verdon, the estate offers rare panoramic views from sunrise to sunset.
Originally an old stone Templar command post, the bastide is accessed along a private driveway with a closed perimeter wall and interior courtyard flanked by 3 wings.

Beneath the shade of ancient trees, two chalets have been constructed on stilts from larch wood. Linked by a footbridge, each of the two chalets have a covered terrace and have been finished to a high level of comfort.
The swimming pool has been incorporated into one of the wings of the old building with terraces and pool house.
A flood-lit tennis court has been designed to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding countryside.
The vineyard was recently planted (< 5 years) and consists of 3 ha of pinot noir classed IGP Côteaux du Verdon. The harvest is sold (without contract) to an independent winery with a little being sold to the local cooperative cellar. The property is privately owned and farmed.
