Chateau de Grimaldi | Aix-en-Provence | French Riviera | France
6,458 Sqft - Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
Château Grimaldi is a very beautiful 17th century residence in the purest Provencal spirit. This magnificent property owes its name to the Archbishop of Aix-en-Provence Jérôme Grimaldi-Cavalleroni (1597-1685) who made it his home from 1655 until his death in 1685.
At that time, King René, Count of Provence, lover of the arts and culture developed Aix en Provence and its surroundings to make it the capital of Provence. Today Aix-en-Provence is still a benchmark in the region. The ruins of the castle form the framework around which is inscribed the original chapel and the large country house which has been completely renovated and adapted to the needs of comfort, while retaining its luxurious character, its intimate charm and its history.
Proud of the local heritage, we wanted to preserve this exceptional site both in the residential part and in the garden and park part. The hundred-year-old oaks know the history of the estate by heart and keep precious memories of the place.
Our goal remains the well-being of our guests, their comfort and their satisfaction. By staying at Grimaldi Castle, you will be immersed in a soothing, luxurious universe steeped in history combining the amenities and comfort of a contemporary villa.
We have endeavored to preserve the soul of the building while adding the modern comfort of current luxury residences so that your stay is perfect.
