www.idealvacationrentals.com Located in Puyricard, only 4 miles north of the beautiful Provence city of Aix-en-Provence, Chateau de Grimaldi offers Provence chateau holiday vacation rentals in 11 bedrooms and 9 baths on 12 acres of park-like setting featuring a 17th century tower, a 16th century chapel, and the ruins of the palace of archbishop Jerome de Grimaldi, who held court at the property from 1655 to 1685. The chateau has been completely updated to today's standards of comfort and luxury while maintaining its Old World charm and history. A mixture of formal and casual French antique furniture and decorations were used throughout the interior. The extensive gardens and terraces offer a perfect venue for outdoor entertaining events, and the 1700 sq. ft. chapel could be used for an indoor event, such as a concert or a 17th Century costume ball. On the grounds are a state-of-the-art tennis court and beautiful new pool built in 1998 in the magnificent setting of the 17th Century ruin. The property is available for rent for special events, such as France corporate conferences or board meetings, private retreats, Provence family vacations, seminars, French weddings, a romantic holiday, or for someone who simply wants a chateau away from home to entertain business clients or personal friends.
