- the unbelievable rediscovery of a 500-year-old royal paradise -
the rediscovery of a 500-year-old royal paradise.
The architecture of this Italian-style palazzotto is particularly charming, with a façade that includes a corniche with stunning quadruple friezes standing 1.20 metres high, charming sculpted dormer windows, Renaissance chimneys, floral-carved capitals, double mullions, etc..
The site, bathed by the warm rays of the midday sun, huddles in an amphitheatre-shaped dale of tuff, measuring 300 metres long and 32 metres high. It creates a microclimate that is just right for acclimatising Mediterranean species.
The château is a living place, inhabited and furnished in the spirit of the first Italian Renaissance.
