Château de Bellet - Nice

A place steeped in
history

Château de Bellet is a unique site surrounded by the mountains and the sea situated at the peak of the AOP Bellet in the hills of Nice.

During the eighteenth century, the Barons of Bellet started planting vines on these hills, thus giving their name to both the estate and the appellation.

The property’s Chapel, built in honor of Agnès Roissard de Bellet in 1873, is one of the major landmarks recalling the heritage of this illustrious family.

Today, this Chapel serves as the reception, store and tasting room where you will be able to taste the gastronomic wines of great character.
