Beautiful French Country Bastide: Château Mireille
We began our tour of this Beautiful French Country Bastide: Château Mireille in my last post (see it HERE), and today, the magic continues as we explore this vacation rental (from Haven In). We’ll be treated to the chateau’s breathtaking French country gardens and Old World interiors filled with timeless architectural details and traditional French elegance.
Beautiful French Country Bastide: Château Mireille
This luxurious and elegant 18th-century Provence manor, or bastide, is an authentic luxury villa rental available through Haven In. Just a 10 minute stroll from the charming village of St-Rémy-de-Provence, this historical French chateau will transport you to a different era!
Inside and out, find French tradition and style. With seven breathtaking bedrooms, three floors, extensive grounds, and a live-in housekeeper, Château Mireille is destined to inspire with its Old World and timeless Provençal charm in the South of France.
Beautiful French Country Bastide: St-Rémy-de-Provence
This Provençal vacation rental is situated within easy access to St-Rémy-de-Provence, a historic village in the heart of Provence.
The village offers all of the charm of a typically Provençal way of life with its friendly inhabitants, daily markets, and its many festivals and celebrations. It is easy to fall for this charming town at the foot of the Massif des Alpilles.
Here’s a bonus bit of advice from the author of Taste of France who resides in the South of France:
“Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is such a sweet town. If you go, be sure to check out the table d’hôte (so not quite a restaurant–there’s no menu to choose from; you take what’s served) at a house built into a cave in a former Roman quarry. Just past the asylum where Van Gogh stayed.” Read about it RIGHT HERE.

A stay at the Château Mireille makes it possible to explore the magnificent landscape offered by the mountains, now classified as the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles (Alpilles Region Natural Park). If French wine is your passion, rejoice. The chateau’s location is near many famed French wine producers.

That Shade of Green on the Shutters!
If you are smitten with the shade of green on the chateau’s shutters, you are not alone. It can be tricky to try to pin down the exact shade since lighting and photography edits convey the color differently. However, on a recent house tour of a French farmhouse near Bordeaux, we learned the homeowner painted her custom shutters a green which is quite popular in France. The color is known as:
TOLLENS Vert Olivier (satin) purchased at Castorama.
This is a traditional French exterior paint color very popular in France, and I wonder if the shutters at Chateau Mireille are a similar green?
