Château des Selves

Quality Bed & Breakfast with swimming pool in Fayence, France – Le Mas des Romarins – Understated luxury in the heart of Provence – Chambres d’hôtes avec piscine – Luxe discret au cœur de la Provence – Pays de Fayence - Chateau des Selves seillans

Basking on our local rocky slopes bathed in sun, Chateau des Selves is the culmination of generations of tireless labour by the Christine family. Thanks to its exposure, the geological structure of the soil and its location, it benefits from the AOP Cotes de Provence. Their reds use Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties, the whites are made using the Rolle variety and their rosés use Grenache, Rolle, Cinsault and Syrah.  All are characterful and, we think, exceptional.  We choose to offer Château des Selves to guests at Le Mas des Romarins.  The lovely Mylène also offers walking tours of the domaine.

Located in Seillans, one of the prettiest villages in Provence, the Val d’Iris owes its name to an ancient iris plantation for the Grasse perfumery. In 1999, Anne Dor bought this small area to begin her adventure in viticulture.  In this pretty little valley, Anne produces typical wines of Côtes de Provence, enhanced by the terroir and the sun her wines are full of light and beautiful structure.
“I like solid reds, delicate rosés
and round, powerful whites.
I wait for you to taste them.”
