Located in Provence, near the picturesque medieval town of Uzès, this remarkable historic château dates from the 13th century. This former property of the Baron de Castille was acquired in 1950 by the legendary British art historian and collector Douglas Cooper. He commissioned the famous Spanish cubist artist to paint five monumental frescoes in the castle, which were later classified as historic monuments along with other parts of the castle. Castille Castle offers over 560 m2 of living space, including 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms and over 180 m2 of reception rooms. The gardens and the 2 hectare park include a gallery, a pond, a caretaker’s house and outbuildings. The charming interior has been decorated by renowned interior designer Dick Dumas. In total, the property offers 2 hectares of magnificent parkland with formal gardens and avenues of majestic holm oaks leading to cenotaphs. Other notable features include historic outbuildings, a large pond, numerous historic stone ornaments and a gatehouse.
