The Chateau d'Esparron is a listed historic building and has been in the Castellane family ever since its foundation in the 13th century. Overlooking the old village on one side and the countryside on the other, the original building was added on to up until the 18th century and so is an interesting mix of architectural styles. The imposing defensive tower and the broad stone spiral staircase are particularly remarkable. In restoring the château we have been careful to preserve its original character and charm whilst making it comfortable and welcoming for our guests, whether in the guest bedrooms in the 18th century wing or a 120m2 apartment in the medieval part of the house.

With one bedroom, bathroom, kitchen (with dish-washer and washing machine) and sitting/dining room with sofa bed for two, the apartment can sleep four people and has an added bonus in the form of an adjoining room in the 13th century tower, a unique place to stretch out in a deck chair and relax or to eat in the cool of a summer evening.More

About the neighbourhood
The obvious place to start is with is the Lac d’Esparron, a stunning lake of clear, aqua-marine water only a stone’s throw away and not only an extremely pleasant place to swim and have picnics by, but full of possible water sports, from sailing, windsurfing and pedalloing for the energetic (including pedallos with slides, hugely popular with children) to the more sedate self-drive electric boats (motor boats are forbidden) or the guided tour of the lake in the bateau mouche tourist boat, the Perle du Verdon. The beautiful, cave-lined Basses Gorges du Verdon which meander from the lake up to the village of Quinson are not as dramatic as the main Verdon canyon, but extremely pretty nonetheless, and a tranquil place to spend a leisurely afternoon in a canoe or electric boat.
