Full description:

An historic château dating back to the 13th century.

This 14th and 17th century château with 13th century origins sits in 5,76 acres of partly formal gardens on the edge of a small hamlet around an hour from Montpellier and the sea. The market town of Lodève with access to the A75 motorway is a mere 5 minute drive away, The château requires complete restoration but both staff and guest annexes have been renovated and provide immediate accomodation.

This small village château offers a unique opportunity to restore a building originating in the 13th century to its former glory. There are legends that the previous owner tried to find treasure said to be buried in the château. The current owner more reasonably undertook the task of structurally renovating the property, including the staff and guest accommodation in the coach house. There is now a perfectly modern flat with central heating and two bedrooms as well as a large living-room from which the restoration project can be overseen. The grounds include a formal garden, a delightful meadow and wood. The roof was entirely redone by the previous owner. The entrance door and the remarkable fireplace in the living-room are grade 1 listed. It would be possible to apply for the château to be listed in its globality, which in France, provides interesting fiscal and inheritance advantages.


Centre of a hamlet 6 km from Lodève, 1 hour from Montpelier and Béziers airports with daily flights to London, 5km from the nearest motorway exit.
