Detailed description

This estate counts a total of three fully renovated buildings, as well as a cottage, which are designed to accommodate special events. Together they offer 25 bedrooms and a variety of meeting spaces. However each of the buildings can function independently with their private gardens and swimming pools.

The origins of this elegant Manor estate date back to the late 17th century and continue through to after the French revolution. It is approached by a long private drive and sits on 18 acres of land with views of its own valley, woodland and pond. The surroundings are made of beautiful undulating wine-growing country side which offers tranquillity and privacy.

The main house is a gracious girondine style ‘Maison de Maître’ which has been tastefully renovated incorporating 21st century comfort whilst maintaining lots of its original features.

The entrance to the house is from the terrace and into the hall which has French doors on both ends. Stairs lead down into a large vaulted wine cellar, hewn out of rock, under the house. The hall serves, on the right, a lovely dining room with built-in antique armoires and original fireplace and next to it is an equipped kitchen with many of its original features including an ancient stone fireplace. Doors from the kitchen lead to the utility room with the boiler for the central heating system. The hallway on the other side of the hall serves a bedroom, a shower room with wc and an elegant sitting room with built-in antique armoires, which enjoys a triple aspect view over the valley, gardens and courtyard.
