An act from the 2nd July 1217 indicates that Châteauneuf belongs to Oberto, Conte de Vintimille. French Provence was at the time, supporting the city of Vintimille against Genovese people and Conte de Provence. In 1536, Emperor Charles Quint is entering Provence, after he escapes an attack in l’Estérel, he takes retaliatory measures ordering the looting and destruction of the defenses with a severely judged inhumanity. Both Opio castles and Châteaneuf remains in ruins after that.
A few years later, life is slowly coming back in the village and in spite of the destruction of the castle, the village of Châteauneuf kept a medieval area with high houses built on the edge of the rock with passages and traces of bulwark still visible today. Development of the culture of the grape vines, olive trees and fig trees enabled a production in excess which was actively traded to the genovese people both from the port of Antibes and the port of Cannes. Saffron business was also very profitable.
The chateau as you can see it today, was built on the ruins of the old one by Baron du Puget. The old foundations have been converted in cellars and you can still see traces of the old cadastral chapel.This classic style chateau offers all the architectures specifications of the early Seventeenth century : simplicity, sobriety and perfect knowledge of the balance of the masses with perfect proportions. The three floors edifice extends with a double facade, identical both from court side and garden side.The main entrance located in the middle of the edifice is decorated with an elegant portico made of tuscan tops pilaters holding a cornice decorated with fire pots. Garden side opens up with an identical gate. State rooms occupy the main area with a large scale taking to the upstairs floors.

Con mio marito ed io abbiamo soggiornato a Chateauneuf ormai diverse volte. La cosa che ogni volta ci sorprende é che dopo essere passati negli ingorghi e nelle confusione della Costa Azzurra, come per incanto ti ritrovi in un villaggio verdeggiante incontaminato dal turismo: Chateauneuf. Il chateau, lui stesso é nascosto dietro un severo portone e solo quando viene aperto ti rendi conto di essere in Paradiso ! Questa casa e decorata con tanto gusto, ma la cosa che mi impressiona di più è l’ articolazione dei due giardini, uno interno ,l’ altro con una vista meravigliosa fino al mare sorvolando al primo piano tutti tetti di cotto del paese.
Le Chateau in Chateauneuf is a unique and beautiful property in this most authentic of French medieval villages. The house stands proudly in the Place du Village, discretely dominating its environment as it blends into its natural environment. Inside subtly elegant, it retains an easy family atmosphere. It is a house for people that appreciate comfort and space whilst enjoying heritage and history. Views are stunning and the house exudes real class, one feels part of an aristocratic tradition going back centuries. Whether alone or entertaining large numbers of guests, you will feel at home. Knowing it well, we heartily recommend this property for what will be a luxurious and unforgettable stay –
I have the most wonderful memories of my stay in Chateauneuf. My family were there this past summer in August. It was a true treat to be spending this time in such a grand house where one can feel a true sense of family and warmth - through the decor, the family portraits, both pianos in one of the living rooms, the summer breeze through the open windows, the privacy of the swimming pool, the lemon trees, the bells of the close-by church, and the joy and welcoming of Lita, who is always there to answer any question. The village itself ressembles à décor, and is only a half hour drive from the busy coast. I hope to go back soon.
Como describir este lugar unico con vista al mar mediterraneo. Escondido detras de altos muros se encuentra el « castillo ».elegante y sereno, una casa donde la belleza y gusto exquisito se unen. Encontramos el carisma y la distinción de antiguas casas aristocráticas francescas. Estare feliz de regresar.
