Discover the property’s wines and vineyards – on the 250-acre estate they grow grapes and cereal crops. They make wines which carry the official designation of origin (AOC) Coteaux Varois de Provence, and local Pays du Var wines. Since 1998 they have also run the vineyard of the Domaine de Riforan in the nearby village of Entrecasteaux. The classic rosé wine is made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes – red and dry whites are also produced.
This 18th-century farm now works as a B&B and provides an outdoor swimming pool, a communal kitchen and a big terrace with a view of Château de Pontevès.
