Overview

About the property

10 Bedroom, 11.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 20

Chateau St. Philippe is the ideal place to enjoy the quintessential French lifestyle. Explore local bakeries, cheese shops, and open-air markets that typify French living. Excellent shopping and restaurant opportunities can be found in the surrounding towns and villages. Take in the spectacular views of the Alps, Mt. Blanc and the iridescent glow of the setting sun while enjoying aperitifs on the terrace. Children find themselves playing outside or exploring the grounds. Endless fun awaits you year-round.

The chateau's history is rich and varied. Chateau St. Philippe was originally built as a priory by the Benedictine monks in1032-1033. Its name, St. Philippe de la Porte, literally meaning St. Philippe of the door, was condensed to its current title: St. Philippe. Since its construction, the priory was transformed into a chateau by Barron Charles-Albert Favier du Noyer in 1828. After his renovation, the chateau changed hands three times before settling into the hands of its current American owners, who have completely restored the castle, preserving its architectural integrity while bringing a modern charm to its atmosphere. Chateau St. Philippe has undergone many changes in its long history since construction began in 1032.

About owner/property manager

My wife and I are located in Southern California, where our businesses are located. We like to spend as much time as possible at the Chateau with our family and friends. The Chateau is lovely year round. Our visitors pick up on the magical and relaxing qualities the Chateau has to offer.

owner/property manager purchased this castle in 1999

Why owner/property manager chose Saint-Pierre-d'Albigny

On 17 acres of privately-gated land, Chateau St. Philippe abounds in natural beauty. Stroll through the property and discover apple, cherry, and lilac trees, blackberry bushes and many aromatic plants and flowers. Enjoy the sight and sound of water cascading from the mountains above and take time to view the spectacular French Alps.

The chateau's south- and east-facing terraces are perfect spots for a meal or an aperitif while viewing the entire picturesque Isere Valley with its lush vineyards. Every season brings its unique colors: spring and summer, the various shades of green; fall, the vibrant yellows, golds, and reds; winter, a quiet blanket of white. Beautiful clear skies highlight the imposing French Alps' Mont Blanc in the east and Chartreuse in the west.

What makes this castle unique

A great addition to the Chateau's authentic ambiance are the recently renovated caves. Entry level offers a bar, a seating area and access to the Chateau's lower garden, along with two spacious additional levels. Here you may host a formal dinner, a casual lunch or an evening of music and dancing. An authentic wine press still sits in the heart of the lower level.
