Less than twenty kilometres from the peaceful shores of the Atlantic Ocean, built during the Renaissance and offering exceptional views, this property is one of a kind and the Logis was the first of several generations of naval officers. Captains and lieutenants have lived in this beautiful house near the Arsenal of Rochefort sur Mer for more than a century. From the house the landscape is so untouched by any visual pollution that it is possible to observe the light from the lighthouses of Cordouan and Coubre and hear the ocean at the Pertuis de Maumusson during high tides.

This exceptional property is set in the heart of a nature reserve that covers more than 100 hectares. Many protected species and plants flourish making this nature reserve one of the richest protected areas in the Aquitaine region and one of the most emblematic sites of Charente-Maritime.

Acquired in 1995 by the current owners, the house has been completely renovated by some of the finest artisans in France in order to restore the exceptional charm of this Chateau, including renaissance friezes and hidden paintings on wood panels which decorate the living room of the house dating back to the 16th century. The property is in good condition.
