At the end of the garden is a restored pavilion dating from 1671 with intricate original beams forming the roof over a single room. The secluded garden is over 2000m2 and has been completely redesigned and replanted with roses, hedgerows and a lawn. Several mature trees provide shade in the summer. An adjacent piece of land has been acquired to provide space for a swimming pool and a second access with parking. There are large forged iron gates at the main garden entrance.
With a full range of shops and a school in the village, and only 15 minutes from the world heritage city of Albi and an hour from Toulouse Airport, this magnificent chateau is just waiting to be snapped up. And if you want to retain the full chic magazine look, nearly all the furniture and fittings are available by separate negotiation.
