Provence is a magical destination, but imagine sleeping at the oldest wine estate in the Luberon. If that sounds dreamy, book your stay at Les Roches at Château de Mille, a fully-equipped duplex apartment that comfortably accommodates six (6) people inside the old stone walls. In the magical surroundings of the heart of Provence, it is a complete immersion in nature and history.

The master bedroom with a queen-sized bed (160cm) includes an ensuite bathroom, and the two other guest rooms with twin beds share a shower room and separate toilet room.

The Property:

Located less than 10 minutes from Apt and its famous Saturday Provençal market, this property allows easy access to many beautiful Luberon villages. Château de Mille is an excellent base for a discovery journey of the region.

The Château de Mille wine estate covers 116 hectares in Provence’s Luberon countryside near Apt. This magical property has 25 hectares of grapevines planted in a north-facing terroir. It is a micro-climate that benefits from the Mediterranean climate and suitable winds from the Rhône Valley.

Dating from the 13th century, Château de Mille was a summer residence of the Avignon popes and the oldest wine estate in the area. The Château first appears in the Avignon archives in 1238. However, there is evidence that the Romans made wine at Villa Milonum as Apta Julia (now Apt) was an essential settlement on the Via Domitia. Some of the estate’s archives are in a permanent exhibition above the winery’s tasting room.

Ideal for:
Couples or families

Minimum Stay:
Five (5) nights during high season, in July-August.
During the balance of the year, there is a two (2) night minimum.

Every rental of four (4) nights or more includes a guided tour of the château and wine tasting.

Rates (2024):
Rental rates vary by season, availability and the length of stay. This is a range of weekly rates for Les Roches 1400€ – 1960€.

Château de Mille guests can access the whole estate for lovely walks over 100 hectares of grapevines and woods.

The two-floor layout of this apartment is unsuitable for anyone with mobility challenges.

There is a washer-dryer in the apartment.

The adjacent parking area includes an electric charging plug.

Bedrooms with twin beds can be made up into one larger bed.
