Near Aix-en-Provence in the village of Jouques, Cécile And Daniel UGHETTO welcome you in a charming setting.
The authenticity of the setting, the large wooded stretches as a far as the eye can see, captivate you with their magic. Do not miss a visit to the wine cellar to taste the wines of Chapelle Saint Bacchi, nor this ancient hermitage which will not cease to surprise you at every turn through its ancient stones.
Comprised of a 190m² reception hall for up to 140 people, gardens, parking sufficient for a hundred vehicles, and four guest rooms, including honeymoon suite, Saint Bacchi is a ideal place to organize your social event, wedding, or function of any kind.
This structure, completely restored, including the chapel which dates back to the 9th centery, was built on a Roman temple dedicated to Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. Pilgrims were devoted to the chapel because the spring which fedd the building was considered to be miraculous. The frescos, still present, represent the castle and fountains. Saint Bacchi was Syrian. A Roman officer who converted to Christianity, he evangelized the region, made himself a hermit and would die on the site of the chapel.
The legend : One night, a group of thieves broke into the Bacchi’s chicken coop, stole hens and roosters, and following the theft the chickens were transformed into stone.
The legend is surely the origin of the coat of arms for Jouques : The rosster and the hen.
