La Tour Apollinaire was built in la Belle Epoque by Baron Hippolyte
Despres-Apollinaire to provide a grand residence from which to
survey his wine estate and enjoy the pleasures of the region.
Since 2003 the property has been transformed to blend post-modern
comfort with classic French charm, while respecting the heritage
of the building and its Italian Gothic and Art Deco features.
Salons and Multimedia Facilities
Each floor has its own salon with comfortable sofas. Broadband
internet access via a wi-fi network is free while two dedicated
personal computers are available for a nominal fee. An extensive
DVD library and full cinema video projection facilities are
also available on request for a small additional charge.
Garden & Pool
The private, walled garden comprises over an acre (3 500 m2)
of lush vegetation and over 300 exotic trees, palms and shrubs,
and is surrounded by the gardens of the adjacent villas. There
is plenty of room for suntanning by the 12 by 5 m swimming
pool, a quiet spot of reading or meditation by the zen cascades,
or simply a gentle stroll to pick some of the fruit or discover
an unusual flower or tree.
