Château les Crostes: Residence of Claire and Félix of Luxembourg

Luxury and real estate Nestled in the heart of Provence near the picturesque village of Lorgues, this magnificent twelfth-century château is part of a 200-hectare estate, 55 hectares of which are vineyards. Its owners, Princess Claire and Prince Félix of Luxembourg and their adorable daughter Amalia, live there half the year, but Château les Crostes may be rented between May and September. LUXE invites you on a guided tour of this exceptional estate.

The crickets’ song, endless olive orchards, rolling landscape covered with vines and green oak thickets… Château les Crostes is a real haven of peace only 40 minutes by road from Saint-Tropez. Here is where Prince Félix of Luxembourg and his wife, Princess Claire of Luxembourg, have chosen to drop anchor since they were married in 2013. While Princess Claire is finishing her doctorate in Bioethics, Prince Félix is managing the winery belonging to his wife’s family. From October to April, they live there like any other young couple, balancing work and family life (little Princess Amalia is now a year old). When the good weather arrives, however, they leave their cosy nest for a few months so that visitors who want to discover the region can take advantage of it.

Luxury, calm and bliss

The majestic two-storey châteauhas an area of 7,530 square feet. It has largereception areas, including two salons and two dining rooms with fireplaces, and is decorated with true Provençal charm. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, a library decorated with old-fashioned charm, a billiard room, a sauna and a fitness room. Upstairs are nine warm, spacious bedrooms, each beautifully decorated and with its own bathroom.

The outside has not been neglected. A pool with Jacuzzi, pétanque andtennis courts and an immense park inhabited by a few goats: the château has everything you need to take advantage of the good weather. Of course, anyone who wants to hop over to Saint-Tropez or Monaco in a few minutes can do so easily from the estate’s heliport. The services of a major-domo, chef and housekeeper are included.

The estate can be rented between May and September and can host weddings, seminars or other events.
