Family owned for over 200 years, this château is a superb example of 13th-century architecture set in 2 hectares of gardens and woods. The château has been lavishly renovated and restored to provide impressive accommodation. Original features have been retained and all of the spacious rooms boast pale stone walls, gothic fireplaces, beams and leaded or stained glass windows with polished stone floors and woodwork throughout. Furnished to a very good standard, and with a mixture of modern and medieval works of art, this property conveniently offers contemporary kitchen and bathroom facilities. The lawns, formal gardens and ornamental garden are crossed by a small unfenced stream/pond and there is a shady terrace near the private swimming pool. The château benefits from the services of a maid and professional chef (menus available), arranged direct with the owner.
