The Patras estates


Built in 1735 in the purest Provencal tradition, Domaines de Patras covers 100 hectares dedicated to hospitality and serenity, in Solérieux near Grignan, halfway between Avignon and Montélimar.
The Domaine is ideally located, less than 1.5 hours from Marseille Provence airport, and less than 1 hour from Avignon TGV station.

Close to all the must-see places in Provence :

  • - 35 min from Châteauneuf-du-Pape (by car)
  • - 45 min from Avignon (by car)
  • - 60 min from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and the Lubéron (by car)
  • - 2h30 from Saint-Tropez (by car)
  • - 3h from Nice and Monaco (by car)
  • - 3h30 TGV from Paris

Les Domaines welcomes you to a magnificent 17th-century setting where past history will accompany you in a spirit of charm and authenticity. You'll marvel at the view over the beautiful Drôme provençale.

In the barn, under the glow of tassels and the majestic fireplace, you can welcome up to 180 guests for seated meals. You can also add a nomad tent extension to accommodate up to 300 guests.

The lakefront and 17th-century courtyard are the perfect setting for your cocktail party.

A cool area under the vaulted ceilings will satisfy any desire for privacy, while an occasional dining room overlooking the rear of the park and its swimming pool will also provide a refuge for chilly mid-season evenings.

The Domaines de Patras will be the perfect venue for all your future events: birthdays, seminars, weddings, where the diversity of the spaces will enchant your guests.
