This elegant 18th century building is where we will welcome you in a sumptuous setting combining history, charm, gastronomy and comfort. The property was built circa 1715, during France's early Regency period. The most notorious individual within these four walls was, of course, the Marquis de Sade and his Family. His father and his uncle, the well-known Abbe de Sade, were both born in this place. Although he spent most of his life in Paris, it was there in the Chateau de Mazan, in 1772, that the Marquis organized the very first Theatre Festival in France. The plays in which he personally performed were shown on both Mazan and Lacoste castles. During the Revolution, Sade was declared persona non grata in Mazan, the Family archives were destroyed, and the Chateau was damaged. After the Revolution, the Chateau remained Sade's Family property until 1850. Its use has varied from this date. Initially it was a private residence and later the Chateau played host to a religious school. In 1923, it became Mazan old people house which finally closed in 1999. In early 2001, the Chateau was turned into a hotel. The Elegant Property Collection Team bought it in August 2019 and started a full renovation of the property to restore its magnificent setting. The Chateau de Mazan, BW Premier Collection is a historical place now reopened for the enjoyment of our guests and offering an authentic historical experience in the heart of Provence. The property, situated in the heart of the Village, has 31 rooms divided in the main building and in an old house (dated back 1695) facing it. Renovated in 2019/2020, the decoration has returned at the origins of the Chateau de Mazan and Louis XV style with a contemporary Provence touch. A special attention has been brought to the garden which has recovered its original setting. Respect of the History, elegance and refinement, Provence spirit are the keys of what the property offers.
