Comments;
This unique property has a rare charm. Idyllic setting. Since the completion of the restoration project the property has hardly ever been occupied, and as a result the bathrooms, kitchen and heating have hardly ever been used and are in virtually new condition. The façades and roofs of the chateau and the outbuildings, the entire chapel and the feudal clod are listed in the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments.
