The Château de Montcaud in Provence is a place of tranquility, style and exceptional cuisine. Constructed by a wealthy silk trader in 1848, the property has been lovingly restored according to a philosophy its current owner describes as le luxe de la simplicité, the luxury of simplicity. Five hectares of immaculate gardens and verdant parkland, returned to their original design from 1892, surround the main building. Inside, polished parquet floors, stuccoed ceilings and silk panels over the headboards attest to the chateauʼs rich heritage. The sumptuous décor is met with modern function and comfort, making the Château de Montcaud a perfect setting for the AXOR Montreux collection. AXOR Montreux was inspired by the Belle Époque, a period of great cultural wealth, technological advancement and fundamental change. At the Château de Montcaud, guests will discover high spout faucets with cross handles at the wash basins and floor-standing faucets with hand shower at the tub.
