Rustic blossoms fields and exquisite 15th-century architecture – all found sprawling beneath the Provençal sun is Christian Dior’s Château de La Colle Noire. Christian Dior’s last home in the South of France was acquired in 1951, with the splendid residence overlooking the verdant slopes in the heart of the Grasse countryside.
Dior’s acquisition of the Château stemmed from his admiration and fondness for the white rails of jasmine and chorus of the crickets – which inspired his dream to be a perfumer.
Quickly establishing the property as a symbol of French art, the Château showcases vast fields of May roses, vineyards and olive trees with Dior’s visionary dream come to life.
The peaceful haven was restored back in 2013, from the grounds, to the reflecting pool, and one thousand African lilies and ranges of tulips and violets have been replanted. All Christian Dior’s favourite flowers seen in the Château reign supreme to this day in Dior fragrances.
