Magnificent 9 bedroom Chateau located in a quiet setting in La Broc, set within a vast hillside plot of 720,000m2 with a swimming pool and stunning far reaching countryside views.
Once the home of the Comte de Martini, and still containing a deconsecrated chapel, which was built in 1697 by Bishop Francois de Berton de Crillon, this historic house was beautifully extended and modified in 1960, by an architect who is famous for creating many classic masterpieces along the Riviera.
In 1985 the chateau underwent a further extensive renovation and modernisation in 2012.
The vast estate, with more than 350 olive trees, is situated in the hills above Nice in a truly tranquil setting to the north of the village of Le Broc, and just above the confluence of the Esteron and Var rivers.
The views from the chateau are spectacular, south across the Var River valley towards Nice and the Mediterranean, and north to the mountains of the Alpes Maritimes.
Accessed by a private driveway through electrically controlled gates, there is also a new road, which leaves the estate. This provides even more convenient access to Nice Airport and the coast, now less than a 25 minute drive away. Monaco is barely 40 minutes away and the beaches of the Cote d'Azur are within half an hour. The Olympic ski resort of Isola 2000 is one and a half hours to the north.
Ground floor, entered through double Henri IV doors: magnificent 3 storey tower entrance hall with the original spiral staircase; double doors leading to the main salon and wood panelled library and wet bar. Entrance hall: 20.9m2. Salon: 46.6m2. Library: 24.3m2. Both the salon and library have double doors which in turn lead on to the lavender lawn, which is graced by a source fed water fountain. More double doors lead from the salon to the large double aspect dining room, which then leads outside to the garden and onto the dining area terrace, with its spectacular views of the Var river valley and its electrically operated shade awning. A large arched access leads from the dining room into a fully equipped contemporary kitchen complete with a La Cornue gas oven and hob, an electric microwave and oven, a further convection oven, Maytag fridge freezer, cheese fridge and wine fridge plus 2 extractor fans, 1 above the induction hob and 1 above the gas hob. Dining Room: 23.13m2. Kitchen: 31.75m2. Next to the kitchen there is a second reception room, sitting room in which to relax and watch television, with access to the main gravelled courtyard. From the kitchen, open tread stone stairs lead up to the 'White' room, an en-suite bedroom with stunning views east over the Var valley. From the sitting room a private corridor leads to the 'Provencal' bedroom and bathroom. Salon TV: room 27.95m2. Provencal bedroom: 18.46m2. Bathroom: 6.86m2. White bedroom: 18.42m2. There are 4 further bedrooms spread out across the first and second floors which are reached via the staircase in the main entrance hall.

Master bedroom: 40.2m2. Master bathroom 1: 13.6m2. Master dressing room: 14.27m2. Master bathroom 2: 10.2m2. Bridge bedroom: 10.04m2. Bridge bathroom: 3.93m2. Louis XV bedroom: 15.39m2.

Part of the main house but not accessible from within the chateau is the 'Oriental' room, a double bedroom with its own kitchen and bathroom suite. It has its own front door situated in the lower gravel terrace and accessed by steps from the front courtyard. Oriental bedroom: 24.5m2. Oriental room bathroom: 4.2m2. Oriental room kitchen: 4.8m2.
The beautifully restored interior is matched by the equally impressive outdoor areas which boast a main formal dining area on the terrace by the dining room, lawns for lounging, fountain and Mediterranean garden.
On the lower terrace there is a further private lawned garden complete with barbecue, and a loggia housing La Chasse Bar and dining area. Next to the bar, with its separate electrical awning, is a large covered area, suitable for alfresco dining or entertaining. Adjoining this area is a large laundry room and storage area, with its own shower and lavatory, and further storage with a fridge and freezer and separate wine cellar.
The original 17th century chapel is also entered from this level. Laundry room: 6.1m2, bathroom: 5.8m2. Wine cellar: 14.7m2. Exterior bar: 20m2. Chapel: 49.5m2.
Upper terrace and to the south of the house: fully heated circular private saline swimming pool (8m diameter) offers a fabulous sun terrace overlooked by impressive cliffs typical of "les collines nicoises".
The large estate surrounding the chateau ensures complete tranquility, security and privacy. Both entrances are protected by electric gates and security systems, the original main gate, and the gate on the new road from Basse Germaine. This new road, approved by local fire and rescue services, provides a private and direct axis to the main road in the Var valley, shortening the drive to Nice and the airport by almost 30 minutes.
