The History of the Château

The Priory of Saint-Pierre de Mejans was first mentioned in 1118 when it figured in a list of properties owned by the Abbey of Saint Andé de Villeneuve-lès-Avignon and confirmed by the Pope Gélase II. The Priory has been affiliated with wine-making since medieval times. In January 1343 the Archbishop of Aix stayed there for two nights and was horrified to discover that part of the church was used as a wine storage space. He immediately ordered the destruction of the wine storage partitions and ensured that the wine barrels were to be kept in a more appropriated place. 

After the revolution the Priory was seized by the State, sold and transformed into a silkworm breeding farm and later continued to operate as a vineyard.

The château also offers lodging with five independent and spacious rooms. Special events can also be hosted such as weddings or parties.
The site includes private wine tastings, its own private swimming pool and other services including private catering, day visits, etc.
