Chateau de Mazan - Review
With its chic bedrooms, lush gardens, theatrical objets d'art and first-rate cooking, this elegant 18th century provençal château – a Room for Romance Hotel of the Year winner – is not surprisingly a top spot for romancing across the Channel.
Château de Mazan's roomy bedrooms capture all the light and loveliness of Provence, with creamy pastels, summery fabrics, antique mirrors, free-standing baths, hammam showers and white-painted shutters. Those on the lower floor have French doors leading to private patios, while upper rooms with a feather-light wisp of curtain look over countryside and village rooftops.
The manacled Marquis
Gardens with a rotunda and shady mulberry trees surround a secluded palm-fringed pool. The badly behaved Marquis – known for his love of manacled bedroom adventures – staged theatre productions at Château de Mazan back in the 1770s, and no doubt strolled through the lush gardens – though heaven knows how his unchained imagination was fired by the profusion of lavender and santolina, and the shady mulberry trees.
Château de Mazan’s stunning L’Ingénue restaurant and dining terrace overlooking the gardens has made the hotel a hot ticket for food lovers. Once the setting for de Sade’s plays, it's now pretty, pastel-painted and candlelit.
Today the drama comes from chef Iris Enrich’s cooking, with exemplary dishes such as scallops with coconut milk and black truffles, roast partridge with bilberries or roast local pigeon served with rhubarb tatin. There’s a lovely terrace for al fresco summer dining.
