Exceptional renovated 18th C Manor for sale with 4 gîtes.
A rich history and an incredible charm for this logis whose origins date back to the 15th century. The manor, rebuilt in the 18th century with 'pierre de taille’, the hand carved limestone, typical to the region, is flanked by a 16th-century castle tower and overlooks the imposing inner courtyard and the former cognac distillery with outbuildings converted into comfortable gites and a wellness centre.
The main house, tastefully decorated, offers about 600m² of living space, including 8 spacious bedrooms and 6 ensuite bathrooms with 2 dressing rooms, a library, a fully equipped kitchen and several sitting rooms and reception rooms. One of the dining rooms, which still dates back to the early days of the logis, might even have had Henri IV visiting it
The Manor House has so much history and many authentic features, such as the wooden floors and beams and the beautiful fireplaces.
Fully renovated in 2014

The estate covers almost 3 ha and is located in a small village equidistant (15 km) between Saintes, the Roman market town and the world-famous city of Cognac.
The Charente River, which François I considered the most beautiful river of his kingdom, runs just two hundred metres from the estate and was once one of the country's busiest waterways via which the illustrious Gabariers transported their cognac towards the Atlantic.
