We walked what was to be 45 minutes in the South of France to find this Chateau, it turned into two hours, multiple circles, and stumbling upon a magnificent celebrity spa hidden within a vineyard. After 15 minutes of trying to fit in with the elite guests, we sheepishly walked up to the front desk asking for directions to our final not-so-elite. We had been going the right way all along, who knew?! After rejuvenating in the air conditioning of the rich mans lobby, complete with chilled wine and a list of rooms that start at $600 a night, we made our way. Hidden away from the main street, tucked behind a long driveway of giant sycamore trees was this rustic, quiet, and breezy compaound. Within the compound we discovered the secret gardens and chateau. This was one of my favorite experiences, the gardens were so relaxing. We had the place to ourselves, minus two or three tourists. After all, it was the beginning of May, and apparently the French vacation for half the month of May!
