An amazing estate with vineyards and a winery set beside a private forest
Hidden away in the rolling landscapes of Provence, La Verrière is a private estate comprising a medieval priory and winery. This unique property is surrounded by its own vineyard and 350 acres of lush private forest in the heart of a UNESCO biosphere, offering a tranquil environment for total relaxation.
The priory, having been restored to the highest standards of luxury and comfort with great regard for architectural harmony and historical authenticity, can accommodate up to 14 guests (with additional children on request) in its four suites and three luxury bedrooms.
Guests can unwind and enjoy the estate’s extensive facilities: relax in large communal spaces and cool off in the heated infinity pool overlooking the vineyard; play tennis or unwind in the Jacuzzi; live the Provençal life with a game of pétanque, or wake up with a sunrise yoga session in their private gym. Bikes are available for exploring the area along the numerous biking and hiking trails. There is also a helicopter landing pad and a wine-tasting room, ideal for hosting events for wine lovers.
The property prides itself on maintaining a sustainable environment; fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown in the garden, and olive oil and honey are produced on the property. The property also raises its own sheep, features a fishing pond and trout basin, and two mountain springs with fresh drinking water.
With multiple indoor and outdoor event and dining spaces, the estate lends itself to weddings, special events and corporate retreats. No matter the crowd, there is a host of activities and entertainment options that can be arranged.
Guests will be welcomed by dedicated members of staff with experience in both oenology and hospitality. A private chef, house manager and a personal butler will ensure the highest level of service, privacy and enjoyment at La Verrière.
La Verrière was the 2020 Winner of a Terre de Vins Wine Tourism Trophy.
