Provence, Yours To Discover

Located in the south of France, in the eastern part of Provence, the Chateau de Gignac overlooks a tiny, charming hamlet of the same name.

The village of Gignac is on the edge of the Luberon mountains between the village of Rustrel (4km) and Apt (8km) on the border of the Alpes de Haute Provence and Vaucluse.

Historically, the area was widely known for its ochre deposits and iron mines, but the landscape is now accented by beautiful lavender fields spreading along the Luberon valley and up to the plateau d’Albion toward the mountains of Mont Ventoux.
