This beautiful medieval 13th century chateau has been renovated throughout the years, but still has kept its authentic charm until today.
Between the beautiful courtyard and garden, you will find the main building, which is surrounded by two round towers at the back and two wings on each side, closing the main courtyard at the front. The magnificent energy of the castle is emphasized by a monumental double staircase illuminated by 3 Italian-style loggias and a beautiful XVIIth – XVIIIth centuries façade on the garden side.
This beautiful property is composed of 24 rooms in total, 14 of which are large beautiful bedrooms full of sunlight and offering lovely views.
It’s located only 12 km from Anduze and Alès, 35 km form Uzès and Nîmes and 40 km from the airport, which makes it a property in a very good communicative place.

Things to do in Ribaute-les-Tavernes:
Visit the famous Chateau de la Napoule, which is a former castle and was built in the 1920s by American heir Archer Huntington. The estate is now open to public tours with guides who will take you through two wings of the chateau that are filled with art, sculptures, tapestries and more from different eras throughout history. Visitors can also enjoy walking trails on site as well as picnic areas where they can rest for an afternoon break.
Take a tour at Mont St Michel Abbey, located just outside of town along Route 68 D579E near Le Puy en Velay. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has been standing since its inception back in 1132 AD when it was officially inaugurated, but remains open to visitors today. It is one of the most visited sites in France that often has crowds during peak times, and it tends to get very crowded during summer months, making it difficult for those who want a more intimate experience with their visit.
The Lascaux Caves are a must-see. They are a network of caves containing over 600 Paleolithic paintings. The artwork was discovered and first studied in 1940 by four teenage boys who accidentally broke through into the lower cave. They were trying to find their way out of the mountain, but instead found an underground chamber filled with stunning prehistoric artworks dating back 17,000 years.
