Built in 1750 by Louis XVI, this beautifully renovated chateau blends classic French architecture with modern luxury and comfort. The property is on the edge of a pretty village, surrounded by 2.7 ha of land. The bustling city of Bordeaux with its airport and high-speed train link is within easy reach.


The property is south-facing and opens onto an informal garden. The central entrance hall is light and spacious, and leads directly through to the rear aspect with steps down to the back of the property. The principal reception room has tall ceilings and large windows. There are magnificent original features throughout, including marble fireplaces, plaster relief mouldings, and polished hardwood floors.  


The internal layout is quite flexible and could easily be restructured to accommodate different needs.  The chateau has been recently renovated and these works have included a complete new roof.  There is great potential for further renovation work on the lower level of the building and additional outbuildings, including a completely separate house, wine-store, turret and gatehouse. The property is on the outskirts of a small but lively village with shops and is 45km from the cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux.
