Built in the 19th century by an esteemed perfumier as a private palace in Grasse, the world capital of perfume, Chateau de la Victoire is a truly outstanding gem even amongst the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera. The chateau is settled within a glorious 3 hectare park lined with ancient palm trees and was a beloved holiday destination of Queen Victoria, surely an undeniable testament to the regal credentials of this property.
Every inch of this huge chateau has been finished to an exquisite standard, and the interior is flooded with sunlight that pours in through vast original windows. Spiral wooden staircases lead on to custom made floors of Lapis Lazuli and marble imported from Brazil and Italy. The wooden wall paneling was constructed to order in Poland to include Jacquard silk tapestries from Lyon. Ornate taps appear like trophies above sinks and large stone bathtubs, whilst gold-leaf detailing, intricate wood parquetry and traditional artworks decorate the walls and high ceilings.
Downstairs the large indoor heated pool room is reminiscent of a Roman spa complete with mosaics, yet another element to the timeless luxury of this property, it offers a jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, massage rooms, work-out room, changing room and even a bar area.
A fairy-tale wedding venue, 200 guests can congregate on the terraces and take in breath-taking views out across the Plaine de Grasse, or a smaller group of 120 can choose to dine inside under the crystal chandeliers.
