This substantial and imposing property is set in a peaceful environment amidst beautiful grounds which extend to 46 hectares The château, built of stone, was originally constructed in 1560 and underwent extensive renovation from 1870 to 1890, however it is now in need of further restoration to bring it back to its former glory. The Château as well as the Chapel, outbuildings and grounds are all listed (ISMH) and it is undoubtedly an architectural gem. The square structure is flanked by four quadrangular pavilions. At the top of each pavilion there is a statue symbolising one of the four cardinal virtues (prudence, justice, temperance & courage). Both the front and back facades are architecturally rich and ornamented with statues representing the builders’ coat of arms whilst the side facades have various openings and italianate loggias allowing access from one pavilion to the other. The side facades are relatively sobre in comparison to the rich design of the other two facades. The property is only 13 km away from the sea. The nearest town with basic services is just 6 km away. Paris is 190 km away and can be reached by autoroute or train.
