Château Saint-pierre de méjans

The ESTATE

History

The first mention of the priory of Saint-Pierre de Mejans dates back to 1118; at this date it was part of the possessions of the abbey of Saint André de Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, confirmed by Pope Gelase II.

The Archbishop of Aix spent two nights there in January 1343 and while visiting the church ordered the prior to tear down the partition which had been erected there and to transport the barrels of wine stored there elsewhere.

After the Revolution, Saint-Pierre de Mejans was seized as national property then sold and transformed into a silkworm farm while keeping the agricultural and wine-growing operation.

For almost forty years in the same family, the priory has been one of the emblematic places of the region, with its Gothic chapel cut off by two spans following the earthquake of June 11, 1909, its interior courtyard and its vaulted rooms of Rognes stone.
