At the heart of this guide is our jewel, Chateau de Garibondy. Perched in the serene South of France, this historic chateau is a sanctuary of luxury and sophistication. As you step through its grand gates, you'll enter a world where timeless elegance and modern comfort harmoniously coexist.
The history of Chateau de Garibondy is a tapestry woven with threads of nobility, aristocracy, and royal connections that stretch back centuries. This remarkable chateau has borne witness to a multitude of historical moments, each contributing to its unique character and charm.
The earliest chapters of the chateau's history unfold in the mid-18th century when it graced the landscape as a substantial property. During this era, it served as a cherished hunting lodge for the bishops of Brignoles, offering respite amid the pristine surroundings of the South of France. The octagonal tower, a distinctive architectural feature, is believed to have been added during the reign of François 1er, further enhancing the chateau's allure.
In the late 19th century, a new chapter began as Chateau de Garibondy found itself under the ownership of Lord Alfred Paget. Lord Paget, a prominent figure in his own right, held the esteemed position of Chief Equerry to the Royal Household. His lineage traced back to the 1st Marquess of Anglesey, renowned for leading the heroic charge at the Battle of Waterloo. This connection to British nobility bestowed an air of distinction upon the chateau.
It was during Lord Alfred Paget's ownership that a touch of royalty graced the chateau's grounds. His wife, Lady Cecilia Paget, held the prestigious roles of lady-in-waiting and wardrobe mistress to none other than Queen Victoria herself. In a moment of historical significance, Queen Victoria visited Chateau de Garibondy and left her mark by planting the magnificent pine tree that graces the main terrace. This grand gesture was a tribute to the birth of her godson, forever intertwining the chateau's history with that of British royalty.
For nearly a century, the Paget family nurtured and cherished this splendid property, adding their own chapters to its illustrious story. Today, as guests of Chateau de Garibondy, you have the privilege of stepping into the footsteps of nobility, surrounded by a legacy that continues to define the essence of luxury and refinement in the South of France.
