VILLA BAULIEU, A WINE ESTATE NEAR AIX-EN-PROVENCE
From villa to seigniory, estate, country house, château and now villa once more, Beaulieu has evolved and flourished through the centuries. The Italian-style château standing today which replaced the old country house was built firmly on its basaltic foundations by the Juliens and the Bessons. With the exception of the four towers that have framed the building since 1805 and updates to the cour d’honneur and first floor circa 1780, the château has not changed since.
The 18th century renovations were probably the handiwork of architect Vallon.
Today, Beaulieu has even reclaimed its former spelling, Baulieu, and Villa has replaced Château.
All the fountains are fed by basins and aqueducts.
