    Rebuilt at the end of the 17th century on the site of an old fortress destroyed by the residents of Les Baux, the château and its chapel did not go by the name of d'Estoublon until the 18th century.
    The estate, which covers 200 hectares, as well as its wine-growing and oil-producing operations, was restored around ten years ago by the Schneider family.
    A milestone testifying to the passage of the old Via Aurelia was found in the château grounds. The Via Aurelia connected the Rhône from Tarascon, to Rome, via Aix and then the Col de la Turbie in Alpes Maritimes.
    The name of the Emperor who initiated the campaign to build the road and the distance from its starting point are generally engraved on these stones.
    Two other milestones testifying to the route of the same road have been found in Le Paradou and at the entrance to Arles. All three of them are in the Departmental Museum of Ancient Arles.
