LE VIEUX CASTILLON
In a sky bursting with history and wonder…At the heart of the village of Castillon-du-Gard, reflecting history from the Middle Ages and overlooking the Pont du Gard, an exceptional hotel with a modern feel… An authentic building made of local, warm stone throws open its doors to you in a unique setting where serenity is key… With enchanting views, intense sun and singing cicadas and elytras, Le Vieux Castillon is a hidden local gem, unspoilt for the enjoyment of its guests
Castillon-du-Gard… Nature in the southA small medieval village overlooking the valley of Gardon and its scrub, between vines and cherry trees. Formerly the residence of the Uzès bishop, it was taken over during the religious wars, passing between the hands of Catholics and Protestants like treasure… But now Castillon is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful villages in Gard: its position in two hundred-year old olive groves, its paved, narrow and winding streets, the old ramparts, its mullioned windows, its expressive gargoyles… Plenty to remind us that time has passed and left a wonderfully unique memory.
The hotel… a lively spot in serene natureThe hotel is a splendid, authentic location which invites its guests to relax. Push open the door and appreciate the subtle reminders of history which make this hotel a historic marvel dedicated to the French art of living. With its period tiles and Gard stone staircases, enjoy losing yourself in the world of Le Vieux Castillon… Eighteen medieval homes, linked through time by walkways, massive steps, suspended bridges or shaded patios, hosting 34 rooms and suites which make up the hotel. The colours are found between the walls, in the decoration and surrounding nature, forming a welcoming mix of warm stone and refreshing marble…
The swimming pool: an unmissable point of viewReserved for hotel guests, the open-air swimming pool (heated from May to October) offers an exceptional view over the Gard and Mont Ventoux vineyards. Comfortably settled down while sipping a cocktail, this is the ideal spot to enjoy the fresh air and relax whilst doing nothing at all…
The cosy patio…At Le Vieux Castillon, the patio is a magical place. The pleasant scent of fig and the ineffable song of the cicadas cocoons us like a healing chant. Cushions, Berber footstools, a small area for reading or dreaming, the patio reinvented for comforting calm moments is the very heart of Le Vieux Castillon. Breathing in the wonderful aroma of the plants, you will truly understand the dream of life in Provence.
