Full description:

Exceptional 17th century logis with later additions, in the heart of a small seaside town - This superb property, approached from the centre of the town by a gate in its enclosing walls, leading to a tree-lined drive to the classically-designed logis, is in the form of two wings, one earlier in construction and on the site of the original 15th century château, of which some vestiges remain. The 5.6 acre site is an integrated part of the town but its size ensures it remains totally insulated from the incursions of modern-day town planning. Part of the site is constructible and its sale, or the sale of properties built on it, could defray considerably the purchase cost of the estate. In addition to the seven bedrooms and several reception rooms offered by the logis, there are five two-roomed accommodation units (in what were formerly the stables) and a caretaker's house. The grounds are devoted to attractively laid-out gardens, a walled orchard, parkland with further areas of fruit trees and meadows., all providing the view from the rear of the logis and in contrast to the townscape beyond the walled gardens at the front.

The town provides activity all year round with bars, restaurants and local shops plus a port with both wet and tidal berths for pleasure craft and fishing boats. Excellent restaurants front the port and there is a view across the mouth of the Gironde Estuary to the Médoc. Famous for its unique beaches in coves with rocky outcrops between them and its clifftop properties with troglodyte dwellings beneath them, the town is an attractive base to explore an area rich with diversity - many types of beaches for watersports enthusiasts and walkers alike; vineyards, oyster ports....

Access is easy via the A10 motorway whose nearest junction is about 25 minutes drive; local airfield ten minutes drive for private aircraft; railway station ten minutes drive with regional trains to larger towns in the area and linking to the TGV network; airports at Bordeaux and La Rochelle about 80 minutes and 65 minutes drive respectively. - Leggett has 15000 more properties on its website with full virtual tours for viewing - our HO team speaks English and eight other languages - Leggett ref: 65791TM17

About Leggett Immobilier, France

Leggett Immobilier is a family business that was started 20 years ago and founded on the genuine belief that French estate agency could be done better – today this still holds true. Indeed, this belief was validated last year when we were crowned "Best Estate Agency in France" at a prestigious awards ceremony in London.

All of our agents live and work in France and have excellent local knowledge, covering both their area and local property prices. Clients are given a single point of contact who is dedicated to helping them make the right decision and to be by their side throughout the purchase process. Our in-house contracts team are experienced in dealing with local notaires and have overseen the purchase of over €1bn of French property - they will ensure that the sale progresses smoothly and our fully bilingual team will guide you through all legal documentation.

With over 220 agents spread across the country we like to think that we are now the leading international estate agency in France, last year around one in ten of all UK buyers of French property trusted us to help them. However, the company’s size and success has not altered the fact that we are a family business who pride ourselves on professionalism and friendliness.

Local knowledge is invaluable when buying in a foreign country. Leggett provides this knowledge - nearly all of our agents have lived through a move themselves and have been trained to deal with any issue or question that might arise. This training includes a three day, residential, course, further "advanced" training and access to our head office team who keep abreast of all changes in French property law and legislation.

It is this, unique, “hand-holding” approach that has helped build the foundations of our company. No other agency in France takes such care of a client before, during and after a property is purchased.

The system for buying a property in France can be complex but is regarded as being one of the safest in the world – the French like "red tape" but not much surprises us now.

With over 20 years of experience, we have the knowledge to aid with legal matters, help with finance, and even ensure that you have all the essential services connected when you make the move to your new home.

Leggett Immobilier - local knowledge you can trust.
