According to information the October issue of the Revue du Vin de France, it is via this last holding company that Mr. Courbit is preparing to take over the Château d’Estoublon en Provence from Remy and Valérie Reboul-Schneider, former owners of Breitling watches, who will retain 30% of the capital.
Château d’Estoublon is a magnificent property of nearly 105 hectares of olive trees and 19 hectares of vines. It is an ideal location in which to set up a luxury hotel in the heart of Provence.
