On an area of 300 ha, including 140 vines, in the middle of a historic park of 72 ha, in the Pays d'Aix, Villa Baulieu is a family house dating from the seventeenth century.
With the exception of the four corner towers dating from 1805, the castle has changed little since its origin. The park, designed in the seventeenth century, was partly replaced by a French park in the eighteenth century. A plot is today planted with olive and almond trees.
Since its creation, the largest Provencal families have succeeded, all attentive to preserve this exceptional place.
A tradition that is still alive thanks to the Guénant family, which since 2002, has gradually restored the castle, the common and the park.
Recently the Villa is an exceptional guest house, a magical place in the spirit of Tuscan villas where luxury and serenity are the key words.
