Mazan, France Villas
The town of Mazan is located in the Provence-Cote d'Azur region of France. Entering this walled 14th-century town through one of its "portes" is like stepping back in time, with ancient houses, churches and fountains adding to the illusion.

Nature lovers can hike and cycle through the region's centuries-old vineyards and along its beautiful waterways, soaking in the town's rich history. The town has a solid selection of accommodation options that are unique and seeped in history.

Chateau de Mazan

Chateau de Mazan has played many roles since it was built in the early 18th century. It has been a school, an old-age home and a private residence. It is most famous for being the personal residence of the infamous Marquis de Sade. It was here that the Marquis staged the first ever Theater Festival in France, playing many of the roles himself.

Today, the chateau is a 25-room inn, each one different from the next. Rooms and suites include en-suite bath, spectacular views, air-conditioning and minibar. Some rooms feature steam showers, 18th-century bathtubs, private gardens and terraces.
