The Estate Fontainebleau

en Provence

Close your eyes and imagine…. nestled in the valley of the Montfort-sur-Argens hills near Vallon Sourn, in the Haut-Var commune of Val, an 18th century Tuscan-style farmhouse, completely restored in 2010 to become, once again, habitable. Out of nostalgia for farms of times past, a longing for large groups of friends breaking bread or, quite simply for the love of life, Jean-Louis and Céline Bouchard have created their paradise, complete with sturdy carriage horses, mischievous little donkeys, a colony of geese (the estate’s respected guardians!), hens that give plentifully and useful sheep who keep the perimeters mowed. A contemporary creche… a place that takes the time to enjoy life. There is even a river running down the middle!

On the property, typical woods made up of oaks and pines are joined by a thousand olive trees, used to make a delightful olive oil and, above all, 35 hectares of vines which, using certified organic farming, produce subtle and generous wines. A rich terroir where Grenache, old Carignans, Ugni blanc, Syrah, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Vermentino flourish and where all harvesting is done by hand. The result of these components combined is award winning wines in three colors (red, white and rosé). Tasting the Estate’s pale-colored rosé at the first hint of summer, with its citrus fruit-tinged nose and slightly peppery yet sweet as a fresh peach palate, is a good initiation to discovering these wines.

A wine cellar with a view

In 2018, the estate built a sumptuous tasting and reception cellar specifically designed to offer a 180° panoramic view. From the large windows and the balcony, the arcades, the Terrubi house, the olive groves, the beautiful plots of vines and the plentiful natural vegetation of the Var can be appreciated. Even the roof of the chapel and the mill perched on an outlying hilltop can be seen. Wine-themed events, public festivities organized by the estate and private parties such as weddings all take place here.

The Mill

Having fallen in love with superb architecture of the 17th century mill found in Grimaud, the owners decided to reproduce a replica on the estate. Functioning with a rotation system that uses an east or mistral wind, mechanics identical to those from the past make the mill turn, producing in flour the old-fashioned way. Sometimes, when the wind picks up, the agricultural team enjoys setting the mill into motion to see the sails inflate… A truly amazing site.

The Chapel

Thanks to the ruins of an ancient, small village on the property, a tiny, Romanesque chapel was able to be reconstructed. Consecrated by the Archbishop of Fréjus and baptized Sainte-Lucie, the chapel is considered Christian. Symbolizing the serenity of the estate, it invites contemplation for those who wish and can also be used for wedding ceremonies.

The Arcades

Perched on the uppermost tire of the old olive grove terraces, these Greco-Roman style columns overlook the estate. Positioned here like a sculpture, these old stones correlate with the owner’s vision of art and aesthetics.

This unusual structure in the middle of nature is placed upon the pediment of an old local courthouse from the 18th century, but oddly enough, blends in with the landscape as if it had always been there.

Très bon accueil. Superbe découverte du domaine de Fontainebleau à travers des parcours ludiques suivi d'une dégustation de somptueux vins dans une magnifique salle.

Nous avons débuté notre visite par une promenade en calèche commentée d'1h très agréable dans le domaine : belles bâtisses restaurées vignoble entretenu, cascade du Baou et animaux, pour le plus grand plaisir des enfants. Nous avons continué par une initiation à la dégustation au domaine. Nous sommes tombés sur une personne passionnée par son travail, moment très convivial durant lequel nous avons appris beaucoup de choses sur le vin, pu partager des expériences, des ressentis et l'apéritif servi avec était très copieux et bon. La gentillesse du personnel nous a touchés, j'ai même eu une "nounou" pour mes enfants ! Bravo à eux et merci de nous avoir accordé autant de temps et d'avoir partagé votre passion ! On reviendra !
