ESSENTIALS The Smart

ESSENTIALS The Smart Guide A TIMELY ROUND-UP OF THE LATEST TRAVEL NEWS AND DESTINATIONS, PLUS A HANDBOOK OF NOTEWORTHY HAPPENINGS AROUND THE GLOBE Palatial Provence Château de Fonscolombe has been beautifully restored to its former glory Castle in the Vines HIDDEN IN THE ENCHANTED COUNTRYSIDE NEAR AIX-EN-PROVENCE, THE STATELY CHÂTEAU DE FONSCOLOMBE PAIRS ARISTOCRATIC INDULGENCE WITH NATURAL SPLENDOUR Provence is, in its own lavender-tinted way, always having a moment, but there is something truly special happening now. Following last year’s opening of the superb Villa La Coste outside tiny Le Puy-Sainte-Réparade, halfway between Aix-en-Provence and the Luberon massif, now another storied wine estate on the fringes of the same sleepy hamlet has opened its gilt-tipped doors. Château de Fonscolombe was once home to two illustrious 18thcentury Provençal families and has now been exquisitely restored with a medley of refined rustic antiques, paintings, rare silks and sleek contemporary touches for deep comfort. All 50 of the spacious sunlit rooms overlook a vast botanical park (don’t miss the century-old cedar tree planted by Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, during her stay at the estate) and fragrant rose gardens. Lunch is served in a cypress-shaded courtyard or, if you’re feeling lazy, at the grassy poolside terrace to the tune of thrumming cicadas. Come cocktail hour, after a game of pétanque, guests sip award-winning Domaine de Fonscolombe wines before heading to the restaurant l’Orangerie, helmed by Édouard Loubet-trained chef Nadège Serret, who whips up fresh Mediterranean dishes with the finest locally sourced organic ingredients. To take full advantage of the region’s spectacular music festivals, the concierge will arrange your heart’s desire, from opera and jazz to local starlit concerts held in the vines. fonscolombe.fr Marseille Provence Airport: 26miles/42km © CHÂTEAU DE FONSCOLOMBE 16 NETJETS
