WEEKEND IN A MEDIEVAL AUTHENTIC HISTORICAL CASTLE BETWEEN ALPES DE HAUTES PROVENCE AND HAUTE ALPES – 3 DAYS
The history of the castle began in the eleventh century. It used to be a place of residence for notables in the era of Louis XIV-Vauban, and it is now a venue with various themes: historical tours, business meetings, concerts, culinary workshops and mosaic apprenticeships.
The Picomtal Castle was a tower in the 13th century, and a building 14th century. It was adjoined by another building and two towers in the early sixteenth century. The original state is completely preserved. The windows were enlarged, a conservatory was built on the southern facade probably in the early nineteenth century. At that time, the facade was decorated with a wooden balcony but that has now disappeared. The garden and the supporting walls of the terrace were built in the sixteenth century.
The Picomtal Castle offers 9 different rooms and suites. In addition to the comfort of the rooms, the building is in a beautiful French garden with ponds, fountains, boxwood parterres, a court, an orchard and a pond.
The Magic of this Renaissance castle
The Picomtal Castle is a pure jewel of Renaissance architecture, well-known and mysterious.
This beautiful house, transformed into a charming guest house, invites its residents to find in an authentic and comfortable atmosphere the joys of discreet luxury. The well preserved furniture are from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The delightful atmosphere draws part of its charm in the stunning nature that surrounds it: a fleet of varied gardens and the enchanting landscape near the Parc des Ecrins. There are plenty water sports and mountain activities you can do at the entrance of the Massif des Ecrins, with the mild and comfortable Provencal climate.
The rooms are suitable to hold from 15 to 100 people for meetings, seminars, concerts and other cultural events. Every year, the vaulted room (formerly guardroom) holds activities such as professional kitchen cooking workshops.
