The Château Petit Sonnailler is located in the heart of Provence, in Aurons, a small typical Provençal village.
The Estate boasts a magnificent view of the Lubéron and Alpilles mountains. It is located in the centre of a large forested area, the lungs of the Salon-de-Provence region.
A HISTORICAL SITE
The Château Petit Sonnailler dates from the 10th century with the tower added later in the 12th century. It is located along an ancient salt route, used by trades transporting salt from salt mills in the midi to the Central regions of France.
During this period, the Château was used for surveillance. The Château was the central point of a huge estate, covered by forest, crops and vines. The current owners are gradually restoring the site to its former condition and charm.
