    Description

    It was Annibal de Forbin, the grandson of the lord who summoned the Waldensians in 1513, who decided to build this 16th century chateau in Provençal Renaissance style. Although called the Château de Florans after the name of the last noble family, it actually belonged to the Forbins, the family to whom Provence owes the fact that it is French and was made an equal ally rather than being annexed. There is a motto engraved in this magnificent chateau (which, unfortunately, is not open to the public): “You made me count, I make you king”. This was given by Louis XI to Palamède de Forbin as a token of thanks for his help in affiliating the two kingdoms of France and King René. The amazing park hosts the world’s largest piano festival every year.
