To kick off our selection of castles to rent in France, awaken your inner child by staying in a picturesque medieval tower! Built five centuries ago by the Genoese, this tower overlooking the sea served as a watchtower. It offers a 360° panoramic view; the good news is that today, you can enjoy it just for the fun of it!

Located halfway betweenAjaccio and Bonifacio, let your gaze wander over the deep blue sea and green hills of this beautiful Corsican region… The rooftop terrace is the perfect place for it.

Even though the interior of the tower has been tastefully renovated, most of the living is done outdoors. The potential for this is inexhaustible: cooking in the shade of olive trees, swimming in the pool designed as a natural setting, showering with a panoramic view over the roof… The owners are keen to offer their guests an extraordinary experience.

What’s more, they also offer a range of special services to make your stay a moment of pure relaxation. Shopping and meals, for example, can be taken care of, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself with friends!

💙 We love: a swimming pool, with a river-like feel, that further immerses you in this wilderness.

Here we’ve found the ideal rental château for a vacation with friends! Conceived as a large family home, it offers everything you need, but with a touch of charm.

After all, its exceptional architecture is there to remind you that you’re in a thousand-year-old château. Renovated with care and respect, it is now as welcoming as it is steeped in history.

The sea as far as the eye can see, Mediterranean vegetation, vineyards, old stones and the song of the cicadas… In this cosy residence, the spirit of the Provencal mas is never far away. The various terraces look as if they’ve been specially built to welcome the laughter of your dinners with friends. And what’s more, they all offer superb views! Here, as in the song, it’s like the South, time lasts a long time…

💙 We like: chateau close to the sea, wine cellars and outdoor activities, plenty to keep you happy.
