Luxury estate with 12/18/20th C. Chateau for sale which has been tastefully restored with great attention to detail and retaining a number of period features including exposed beams and stonework. With 24 bedrooms overall the Chateau has seven guest cottages, one of which has an indoor pool, and there is a enclosed heated swimming pool and tennis court. Within walking distance of all amenities, the property is nonetheless wonderfully private and peaceful.
