It’s one of the most incredible domains of Provence, both eccentric and beautiful. In 2006, Henri Fabre decided to revive Château de la Clapière, the first of the six domains acquired by his family throughout the 20th century. It’s a magical place, full of history; that of his family, which originates here, and then the Great one, marked by the memory of the Queen of Queens: Victoria.


This domain has many assets with guest apartments ranked 3 and 5 stars, a museum dedicated to Queen Victoria, a wine shop offering thousand temptations (wines but also tableware and decoration), its exclusive ‘eau de parfum’ - Victoria de la Clapière - conceived with the complicity of the Fragonard House in Grasse, or a one-hectare park and greenhouse welcoming hundreds of exotic birds (visit by appointment, also including, for 10 euros, the discovery of guest apartments [subject to availability] and a guided tasting of the house ‘Crus Classés’ in the Treasure Room).

Original and unusual

Domaine de la Clapière offers the most expensive bottle of rosé in the world. Its price: 18,000 euros each! If the content is good (see our ‘Favourite’), the container itself justifies this expense: a Bordelaise bottle ornate with four carats of diamonds! The label is in fact composed of 123 precious stones set in a white gold support by Opificio Orafo Torrini, the oldest of the world's jewellery, founded in 1396 in Florence. Note that a more affordable version with Swarovski crystals is also available.
