It’s not everyday that a French historic estate, dating back to the 13th Century and featuring murals by one of the most famous modern artists, comes on the market. Located in the picturesque Provence region of Southern France, the Castille Chateau, a former property of the Baron de Castille, was acquired in 1950 by legendary British art-historian and collector Douglas Cooper – who owned one of the most important 20th century art collections. Picasso, a frequent visitor of the castle, installed five frescos, which subsequently have been classified, together with other parts of the castle, as “Historic Monuments” by the French State. The property, featuring two drawing rooms, two dining rooms, several kitchens, 7 bedrooms and 8 bathroom, is currently for sale by Sotheby’s International Realty.
