As far as historic French castles go, the Château de Crémat is a mere infant, built in the beginning of the 20th century. But it was designed to appear like it was there long before the city of Nice that spreads below it, with a mixture of architectural styles and a creamy exterior that reflects the stunning Riviera light.
Those wondering if it’s worth a visit should look no further than their taste buds. The Château de Crémat was built specifically for its surrounding land, which is taken up entirely by picturesque vineyards that yield some quality wines. Guided tours of the castle are free, and wine tastings are available for a tasting fee.
If you're looking for a vineyard experience from Nice that doesn't require a lengthy travel time, then Château de Crémat is the place for you – it's just up in the hills of the town. However, it is mandatory to reserve; the Château de Crémat is a quite popular venue for events, with its gardens, outdoor spaces and interior rooms serving a wide variety of receptions and parties, including weddings.
