Grounds
The park of 4.5 ha was created by a well known garden designer in the XIXth century and has good walks and great views of the surrounding countryside and vineyards. There are areas with pine wood, lime trees, Cedars, a vegetable garden and 30 olive trees. The vineyard was planted 15 years ago and offers 1600 plants of Sauvignon, Muscat and Viognier. The wine is produced on site in a very basic but sufficiently equipped air-conditioned "cave" in the basement of the Château. The Château has its own hobby wine label. Further on there is a stable large enough for 3 horses. The whole property is enclosed and not visible from the exterior thanks to the park surroundings.
Notes
Mains water and septic tank.
General condition: the property is in excellent condition and has retained all original features in very good condition. Only parts of the second floor will need some decoration work according to individual requirements and the kitchen would benefit from some updating. Plumbing, electricity and the oil central heating were renewed 20 year ago. High ceilings and many original floors and fireplaces etc.
