CHATEAU DE FONSCOLOMBE, A NEW PROVENCAL ART DE VIVRE!
After eighteen months of renovation and restructuring works, Château de Fonscolombe is embarking upon a new chapter in its long history that dates back 3 centuries. This bastide, which is classified as a historical monument and embodies the spirit of the Quattrocento period, has transformed itself into a 5 star hotel complete with 50 rooms and suites combining the elegance of the 18th century with a decidedly contemporary feel.
Bespoke lighting designer Brossier Saderne was called upon to light up the bedrooms and suites with their luxurious materials such as chiseled wood, sumptuous fabrics and marble and wooden bathrooms. The bedrooms have been equipped with golden reading lights that diffuse a led source for optimum reading comfort. The adjoining bathrooms are fitted with golden varnished wall lights complete with knotted natural hemp cords which perfectly complement the intricately carved wooden mirrors.
A library, lounge bar, dining room, gallery complete with piano, a large outdoor swimming pool and a well-being and exercise area all contribute to the relaxing and welcoming feel of the premises. The l'Orangerie restaurant is a contemporary construction that respects the Château’s original architectural elements. It can seat up to 120 guests and serves a menu of exclusively homemade produce.
The Château’s interior decoration has sought to create a light and airy Provencal atmosphere in its design and decoration. The authentic refurbishments and decoration have succeeded in reflecting the splendor of history and embodying the essence of luxury that withstands the test of time.
