Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Masterpiece of the Renaissance in Provence, the Château de la Tour d'Aigues is located at the foot of the Luberon Mountains. His plans inspired the largest castles in the Ile de France (the Louvre, Ecouen, Anet) and the elegant proportions of its facades deserve to have some attention. In the restored rooms, discover the pottery of the Tour d'Aigues: partially preserved pavement of the French Renaissance, decorated with white tiles or outputs of the factory of Baron JB.J Bruny (owner of the castle in the Enlightenment) Imagine what was the past splendor of this building ... We offer rental packages "à la carte", suitable for all types of events: seminars, meetings, trainings, conferences, parties ... The courtyard, terrace and rooms of the castle can host events from 10 to 800 people. The Castle team brings to every request quickly and creative response to customized services in an exceptional setting.

You encounter a strange silence, almost unnatural ... and try to imagine yourself back nearly 500 years ...Amazing...
But the visit is over and wake up, brutal, in 2013 and clamor daily local fair. Fair in whcih the small traders exhibit their products at exceptional prices - do not forget to drink local beer produced in small familial factories ... exceptional ...
