General Description

The Chateau, built in 1611 during the time of King Louis XIII, has been beautifully renovated and furnished with a mix of contemporary and traditional French furniture. Situated on a low hill with expansive views of its surroundings, its classical architecture is one of careful symmetry and alignment. Entry is via a stunning avenue of trees past classical iron gates and around a courtyard of traditional French sculptured hedges. Once through the front doors, you will be amazed at the three-storey chandeliers casting the most wonderful light on elegant limestone balustrade stairs. Being a chateau that has never been abandoned by its owners and its current owners only being its fifth since it was built, the chateau retains the best of everything of its period. From the ornate window handles in the shape of winged angels to its sculptured limestone balustrade staircase, imposing fireplaces, full length French windows, beamed ceilings and classical proportions, it is a home of perfect light and tranquility.
