Property Description

The Chateau actually dates back to the time of Francois 1st. His supposed escape from his enemies by a secret tunnel in the grounds is mentioned in history books, although most of the architectural features we see now actually date from the 17th century. The living area on 3 levels extends to over 700m2 and has been lovingly restored with hand crafted double glazed windows and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, having kept and re-laid the original terracotta tiles on the ground floor. providing accommodation of 6 bedrooms in the main house and a further bedroom, bathroom and kitchen in the guest wing by the swimming pool.

On entering into the main hall the beautiful wide staircase leads to the upper floors.The polished walnut double doors on the left lead through into the drawing room with stone fireplace and four large windows overlooking the gardens to the south. The double doors on the right lead into a large games room and an intriguing interior fountain with swans head taps, stone fireplace and 2 large windows to the south. Double doors then lead through to the vast kitchen area and the Swiss wood burning stove.Behind there are various pantries and storage rooms with a scullery next to the kitchen leading to the back entrance way. The monk’s refectory one of the oldest parts of the house lies to the rear and provides a cosy sitting room with its warm stone fireplace.

The generous sized bedrooms are spread over the two upper levels each with access to a bathroom.

Access to the Guest Wing is gained by either a connection door from the first floor or by a separate exterior entrance. Situated next to the lovely swimming pool with a living area of 75m2 and its covered terrace.

The house has many original features such as the monks refectory with its unique food warming system, the beautiful stone fireplaces and a unique bathroom converted from the ancient treasury room complete with its heavy metal door designed to withstand a battering ram.
