the castle

Balmes le Château was built by an enlightened landowner who wanted to celebrate the beauty and spirituality of Nature. The Château cultivates its share of originality with its 3 towers topped with crescent moons and adorned with clovers, its stylized salamanders on the cement tiles of the corridor, and its majestic pool...

Air, earth, fire and water. This château is an ode to the power of the 4 elements. Inside, the decor revisits chateau life with a bold, exotic touch. From the Grand Salon to the Club, the galley kitchen, the Suites and the Suite-Apartment, everything has been designed to offer comfort down to the smallest detail, while respecting a sustainable approach.

the ideal domain

The 9-hectare estate offers inspiring spaces to create a stay where surprise is part of every moment. The beauty of a château, the scent of lavender fields, the authenticity of stone bastides, laziness around a swimming pool and its straw hut, the joy of celebrating in the Orangerie, the freshness of forest paths, gourmet delights near the caves where food-trucks are parked, laughter around the table soccer or petanque pitch, the gentleness of a stroll with friends in the surrounding area. All Natura 2000 sites.

The Domaine also shares strong values and a sustainable approach. Welcoming moments of happiness is an honor, doing it well together is a duty. Nothing has been left to chance, and with heart and spirit, 4 principles guide the life of the Domaine: Minimize our Impact, Go Local, Redistribute and Do Good. Balmes le Château is the first event estate to apply for the international B Corp label. When you choose Balmes le Château, you're choosing more than just a place, you're bringing these commitments to life.
