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.

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.

French Country Inspiration - Come tour an Exquisite Villa! #hellolovelystudio #frenchchateau #housetour #frenchcountry #interiordesign #frenchgardens

The color is:

TOLLENS Vert Olivier (satin) purchased at Castorama.

This traditional French exterior paint color very popular in France, and I wonder if the shutters at Chateau Mireille are a similar green?

French farmhouse green shutters paint color: Vert Olivier.
French farmhouse shutters light medium green paint color: TOLLENS Vert Olivier.

    I’m so glad you gave us more on this gorgeous bastide. The gardens stand out for the minimal amount of grass. The south of France is very dry, and grass needs to be watered. Lawns just aren’t suited to the climate. Instead, the vast expanses are covered with gravel, which lets precious rainwater penetrate to the trees’ roots, and the greenery comes in the form of boxwood. Oleander is another regional favorite–it’s native to the area and provides colorful flowers all summer and stays green in winter.
    I also like how there are so many spots for dining and relaxing outside. It reminds me of the movie “Enchanted April” (a must-see, even though it’s kind of old now). We have three dining tables in our little garden, depending on the wind, the time of day/sun, and number of people.
    Thanks for the shout-out!

      I love all of the gravel and boxwood – so much more pleasing to my eye than expanses of lawn or busy flower gardens. Thanks for the insider info – it is always wanted and cherished. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. I so enjoyed my journey not knowing what to expect, each room is designed to suit your personal style, there could be changes made, alas, that would be my personal preferences. The house and gardens are just so calming and lovely, I can imagine how lovely it would be to live there. Enjoy and be grateful, always…. 🙂
