This former fortified castle, largely modified during the Renaissance period, sits on a high point with views to the surrounding countryside. It is approached via a quiet country lane to generous parking area.
The entrance is via a huge stone portal (a former portcullis) into a vast central courtyard. To the left of the entrance is the Private Chapel (50m2) which also houses the wine cellar. Ahead is the impressive Renaissance facade with beautifully worked stone windows and four huge, glazed arcades. The grand salon (135m2) is behind these arcades and benefits from a wonderful light. Tiled floors and 5m high ceilings. This room is ideal for many uses; main family living room, gallery, seminar room, restaurant dining room. There is a very large, professional standard kitchen off the grand salon. A door at the rear of the grand salon leads out to the generous stone slabbed sun terraces ideal for outdoor dining, and overlooking the ultra modern "mirror" swimming pool which flows over on all four sides. Lovely views to the countryside.
Upstairs is another large private salon (90m2) with cased ceiling and monumental stone fireplace and views over the countryside. The bedrooms have all been fully renovated and re-fitted and come fully furnished if required. There are eight double bedroom suites in total, each with an en suite bathroom or shower Room. Each suite is decorated to an historical theme. The bathrooms are fitted to a high standard. One of the suites benefits from a rooftop terrace looking out to the countryside and down into the courtyard. The fact that the château is in a high location gives views in all directions.
This stunning château would make a fine family home, steeped in history, yet with all the comforts of modern living.
Alternatively, by its size and number of bedroom suites, the château would make a super boutique hotel or small conference centre. It is fully set up for this as it is currently run as a luxury chambres d'hôtes, and all the bedrooms, the kitchen and the grand salon can come fully furnished for an additional sum, to be agreed.
A superb opportunity for someone who appreciates such a spacious and historical building, and who will also appreciate the high standard of renovation.
