Château de Sannes

A property amidst vineyards and olive groves where one can live to the rhythm of Provence

Make a booking request

Featuring light stone facades, olive groves, and cypress trees, Château de Sannes seems to embody the essence of Provence, dating back to the 15th century. On the menu of this exceptional estate? Three pools – each more impressive than the other -, a swan lake, and a panorama overlooking the vineyards!

Acquired in 2017 by Pierre and Marie-Aude Gattaz, this exceptional estate in the heart of the Luberon welcomes weddings, seminars, large families, and groups of friends (up to 32!) seeking greenery and fresh air. Pierre Gattaz’s connection to Provence dates back to his childhood, when he explored the area with his uncle in search of fossils. As an adult, he and his wife discovered a vineyard there. Both passionate about wine, they fell in love with this historic estate and its 40 hectares of vineyards.

"When you arrive, you get the feeling that time has stopped. There's something very majestic, grand about it here."

The Château life

If the walls of Château de Sannes could speak, they would tell many tales! Before becoming a vineyard and a popular summer destination, the estate hosted Celtic weddings over 2000 years ago. Then the Romans made it their home, as evidenced by ancient sarcophagi discovered by the current owners.

Before the Gattaz family, the Château belonged to a British couple who took inspiration from 19th-century English castles to redecorate and furnish it. The result? A captivating blend blend of Surrey and Provence! The new happy owners chose not to alter it to preserve the authenticity of the place while adding modern comforts. With original terracotta tiles, wood paneling, exposed beams, copper bathtubs, and canopy beds, it exudes the charm of an old family home where guests love to return.

A preserved nature

In addition to wine, the family also produces honey and AOP olive oil, all organically farmed, on the estate’s 75 hectares. All that’s missing is some good bread for a perfect Mediterranean snack! And to explore every corner of the property, a truffle hunt with a specialist can be arranged.

To stay in tune with nature, ‘forest therapy’ professionals regularly organize walks where participants learn to ‘recharge’ by connecting with the trees, some of which are centuries old. This practice, known as silva therapy (from the Latin word for ‘forest’), offers a return to the roots and a guaranteed disconnection.

Luxury, tranquility, and conviviality

Throughout the year, events such as literary gatherings, aperitif concerts, and the ‘Wines & Passions in Luberon’ festival are organized. With a plethora of activities available—strolls, sunbathing, swimming (with three pools to choose from), pétanque, badminton, cycling—guests will never be idle. ‘The idea was to offer activities that appeal to everyone, locals and visitors alike, providing access to this incredible place and creating magical moments,’ says Thibault, son of Pierre and Marie-Aude Gattaz, who now manages the Château.

During the summer, long tables can be set up in front of the Château – under the shade of plane trees, with the sound of water from the Provencal basin – for lunches that extend late into the afternoon, accompanied by wines from the estate. After a siesta, a dip in the pool under the greenhouse and bougainvillea provides refreshment before moving on to the ‘apéro-mill’, another family tradition that guests can enjoy! A convivial moment where barrels are set up around the mill for drinks while watching the sun disappear into the vineyards. Then it’s time to slip into a canopy bed with a book in hand before doing it all over again the next day!
