This imposing château which has eight rental apartments as well as the owner's accommodation and a further 18 rental units in the outbuildings, sits in a calm, wooded setting, free from all disturbance at the heart of the Herault. Just 2 mins away from an attractive village, the property is easily accessed due to the proximity of a motorway exit (5 mins) and an international airport (25 mins). With undeniable charm, the château which dates from the XIIIthcentury, underwent a full overhaul at the beginning of the XIXthcentury with the creation of the outbuildings, including the vast winery.

The romantic-design château covers over 1900 m. of living area of spacious rooms, fireplaces and original mosaics as well as an extensive dining room adorned with crown plaster moulding and a large terrace.
The château hosts the owner’s private accommodation, a beautiful chapel and 8 rental apartments.

Legend would have us believe that Molière performed plays here for the then owners at the beginning of his career.

The château outbuildings cover approximately 2000 m., comprising 18 rental units over 7 buildings. The apartments have been fully renovated in the past 10 years in order to be rented out as holiday lets.
Altogether, the château and outbuildings comprise 24 apartments, including 44 bedrooms, a restaurant and a large reception hall.
During their stay, customers can enjoy the use of the following facilities: outdoor hard-surface tennis court, main 17 m heated swimming pool, 2nd8 m swimming pool, 40 space tarmac carpark.

The château is surrounded by 40 ha of vineyard in a single contiguous plot. Classed IGP, the vines are farm by contractors and the harvest is sold to a local wholesaler.
The vineyard is in average condition and would require a certain amount of reorganisation.
The uprooting and replanting of part of the vineyard should be anticipated.

Currently the wine tourism business generates a turnover of approximately 400,000 Euros. The wintery business has been converted into a large reception hall but could easily be transformed to be an up to date winery.
The varietals planted in this vineyard would permit the production of a range of red, white and rosé wines.

Price guide: 7 000 000 euros net vendor. Agency fees of 5 % net of VAT and legal costs to be added.
