Château de Pécile
Renovated 18th century Château
Château de Pécile has been welcoming international visitors since 1560, when King Henri II of France gave the royal property to his favoured Italian courtier Vincenzo Piscilla from Lucca. Hence the name Le Pécile.
Ever since the 16th century, fascinating literary and creative people have lived, dined and laughed at Le Pécile. And your group could be next, following in the footsteps of characters like Bishop Matteo Bandello who wrote the original Romeo and Juliet storyline that Shakespeare subsequently made famous.
In 2002, Fiona and her husband bought the house in a dilapidated state from Monique Fillerin, one of France’s most decorated civilian heroines of World War II, who had lived there for fifty years.
“It felt like a big project at the time, but all the hard work has been so worthwhile, and our reward is seeing the château full of interesting people who also appreciate beauty and craftsmanship”.
Today the house has been sensitively updated and restored into a lovely tranquil family home. The interiors are luxuriously furnished with global artefacts and textiles collected during the family’s years overseas, with contemporary bathrooms complementing the traditional features.
The property nestles discreetly in the rural landscape, looking out over its own organic acres. Enjoy early morning strolls along the hedgerows and woods, and chilled sundowners overlooking the distant hilltop villages. Or relax by the salt water pool within a 15th century ruin.
We cannot wait to host your group and watch you fall under the spell of Château de Pécile’s gentle charms.
