You may know I am smitten with the vacation rental properties offered by Haven In. We rented a luxurious Paris apartment near Notre Dame through them and were delighted with the experience of living as locals. Ever dreamed of traveling to the South of France? Today’s House Tour: a French Château Near St-Rémy-de-Provence spotlights breathtaking Château Mireille with its French gardens and elegant Old World interiors.
House Tour: a French Château Near St-Rémy-de-Provence
Where is this Château?
This traditional and elegant 18th-century Provence manor (or bastide) is an luxury villa to lease through Haven In.
Just a 10 minute stroll from the charming village of St-Rémy-de-Provence, this historical French chateau transports us 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.
What is the village of St-Rémy-de-Provence like?
This Provençal home 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 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.
Insider Tip for Where to Go in the Village
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.
The area is home to many cafés, restaurants, and historic sites, all within a setting of cobblestone streets and authentic architecture.
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:
Paint Color: TOLLENS Vert Olivier
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?
