Wonderful chateau built on a defensive position on top of a hill overlooking the countryside below and beyond.

The remains of an ancient fortress (the construction of which took place from the 12th to the 16th century), a large medieval tower, a Renaissance wing, the foundations of two other towers and an adjoining Louis- Philippe chateau have been completely restored and offer today approximately 600sqm of comfortable accommodation over 4 floors.

The ground floor offers a period “guard’s room” of 35sqm with ceiling height of 3.3m stone fireplace, tiled floors and original beams, this leads to an internal hallway with wc and a choice of doors to either the fitted kitchen with direct access to the terrace with stunning views over the valley, or through a door into the tower with stairs leading to part of the cellars or up to the 1st floor.
The final door leads us along a glazed corridor to the Louis Philippe chateau section of the ground floor. Here we discover, a large double bedroom with en-suite facilities, the double aspect dining hall of 26sqm and ceiling height of 3.6m, an entrance hall (11sqm) with ornate flooring, lounge with solid parquet flooring (29sqm), double aspect “Napoleonic” library (29sqm) with marble fireplace, bureau also with marble fireplace 30sqm and an open hall with stairs to the upper floors.

The 1st floor in the Renaissance wing has a very impressive 84sqm entertaining hall with mistral gallery within it’s 5.5m ceiling height.
In the large medieval tower we have 3 floors with large circular 5.8m diameter 4m high ceiling bedrooms and en-suite on each floor. The remaining section of the 1st floor offers 3 further large bedrooms with en-suite facilities.

The 1st floor in the Louis Philippe Chateau wing provides 4 large bedrooms 3 of which have en-suite facilities and above the former staff accommodation offers 4 separate rooms.
The stables, today used as workshops, storage, 2nd kitchen and laundry are underneath the renaissance reception hall and the original vaulted cellars below.

Within the grounds is a 4 car carport and new pool house next to the pool. There is a former water tower ripe for restoring if required.

Over 4 hectares of private enclosed and gated park with mature specimen trees, an established orchard, gravelled courtyard, large lawn area, paths and hedging and a modern design heated salt-water swimming pool.
