Property Summary
Just an hour south of Poitiers and dating back to the 15th century with even older roots potentially dating to the Templars, this château is steeped in history, providing very comfortable accommodation with income potential if desired.The estate is extremely large and the following details give just an outline of the property.


Full Details
The LogisThe logis itself provides the main accommodation, being set between the independent guest accommodation and the fortified tower.Ground floorThe front door opens to a magnificent entrance hall (47m2) with flagstone flooring and a monumental fireplace. From here a corridor provides access to a large laundry room (12m2) and a stone staircase to the first floor. The remainder of the ground floor comprises store rooms and the boiler room.First floorThe stairs rise to a landing from where a door opens to the formal dual-aspect sitting room (50m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling, a fireplace and glazed doors to a terrace that runs along the back of the logis, overlooking the formal gardens. From this room a door opens to a smaller sitting room (30m2) with terracotta-tiled floor, fireplace and doors to the terrace.There is a door from the smaller sitting room that opens back to the landing, and another door that leads through to the dual-aspect dining room. This room (31m2) has a terracotta-tiled floor, a fireplace and a door to the terrace.To the far side of the dining room a door then opens to the kitchen (38,2) with stone floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone walls, a monumental fireplace and a door to the terrace.First floorThe stairs continue to the first floor landing. To the far end is the master bedroom suite comprising a bedroom (16m2), a shower room and a well-fitted out dressing room (15m2 - this room could equally be used as a bedroom as there is a door back to the landing). Off the landing are two more double bedrooms (21m2 and 20m2), one of which has an ensuite shower room.Terrace and Round TowerRunning along the back of the house is a raised terrace which steps to the garden. This terrace is accessible from the reception rooms and the kitchen. To one end of the terrace is the Round Tower. In here there is a pretty summer room (19m2) with fireplace and potential to create a room above it.
Guest wingAn outbuilding next to the logis has been tastefully converted to provide comfortable guest accommodation. On the ground floor there is a self contained gîte with living room (36m2) with sitting, dining and kitchen areas and two ensuite bedrooms (13m2 and 12m2).Above this, and reached via a covered flight of stone stairs, is a large room (71m2 - currently used as an office) and another room (18m2). It would be perfectly possible to turn this into another gîte as the pipework is already in place. This floor is also accessible from the kitchen of the logis via a covered passage.
The TowerThe tower is believed to date back to the 15th century and provides both impressive accommodation and impressive views.Whilst there is an access from the courtyard, a former drawbridge from the formal sitting room provides access from the logis.Ground floorThe ground floor of the keep was built as a vaulted cellar. From here a stone spiral staircase rises to the first floor.First floorThere is a vast reception room (45m2) with stone floor, very high exposed beam ceiling and an immense fireplace. Off this room is a smaller room (10m2 - formerly the oratory). With access from the formal sitting room, this floor is perfect for entertaining / dinner parties.Second floorThe stone staircase continues to the second floor, which shares the same floor plan -
