Description

The ‘Haussman’ design gives the Château an unusual style for the area. The façade is richly decorated with mouldings and sculptures, and the central round tower, that serves as a winter garden, adds a romantic touch. All the original features have been conserved in the living room, dining room and bedrooms. From the balcony on the tower you can take in the superb view across the village and the surrounding vineyards.

The Château has 8 luxury bedrooms (each with its own private en-suite bathroom), a spacious living room decorated with a 19th Century panoramic fresque, a dining room, kitchen, winter garden, gym & relaxation room and sauna.

Behind the Château the terraced garden looks across to the pool area to the vineyards beyond. A stone stairway, hidden among fig trees, gives access to the bottom of the garden with its fruit trees and borders of wild lavender. The summer house located next to the pool, is equipped with a kitchen, which includes a refrigerator, sink, ceramic hob, microwave, plus all the necessary glasses and crockery. Next to this is a stone barbecue, where you can prepare inviting poolside lunches and aperitifs during long summer evenings…a heavenly haven!

You are sure to appreciate the spacious leisure area in the basement with its gym, sauna and relaxation area. The decoration and furnishings have been chosen with greatest care offering a mix of traditional and contemporary styles. The beds are made up for your arrival and towels and toiletries are provided. High definition television, blu-ray DVD and wireless internet are all available.

Living Room and Central Tower
The magnificent living room has an open fireplace that dates back to the 19th Century. Logs are provided, enabling you to make the most of evenings around the fire with family or friends. You will also appreciate the 19th Century fresque, that covers all four walls of the room. The room is extremely light and airy, with large windows opening out onto the park. The moulded ceilings, the wood panelling, and the oak floor are all original and create a wonderful atmosphere. The central tower is arranged as a winter garden and being next to the living room it serves as a doorway out to the garden and pool. This is also the smokers area as smoking is prohibited in the rest of the chateau.

Library and Dining Room
Books and DVDs in the library are at your disposal during your stay. An English style pool table, a big screen HD television with Satellite channels, a blu-ray DVD player, and a Playstation 3, will ensure evenings full of entertainment. Wireless internet connection is available free of charge. The dining room has a long table which can seat up to 15 people, and large windows to let the light show off the beautiful moulded ceiling, the original wood panelling, and the old oak floor. Glasses, crockery and cutlery are at your disposal in the sideboard.

Kitchen
The Château galley kitchen is fully equipped and includes an oven, microwave, five ring hob with extractor fan, dishwasher, large refrigerator, freezer, electric coffee maker, toaster and electric kettle. A full range of kitchen equipment, utensils and accessories are also provided, including an assortment of herbs, spices and condiments for you to use. Two high chairs are available.

Bedrooms
The Chateau has eight bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. There are five doubles & three twins (the twins can be converted in to doubles if needed). The beds are made up for your arrival and two cots are also available. Two of the bedrooms are 'VIP bedrooms' with views out across the park and the vineyards, one of them also has a 10m2 balcony. Both have HD television with TNT channels, Blu-ray DVD player, bath with massage jets, double washbasin and hairdryer. The eight bathrooms have been stylishly fitted with your comfort in mind. Each has a WC, a washbasin and either a shower or bath. Towels and toiletries are provided on arrival.

Outside

Spend hot afternoons lazing around the pool on one of the sun loungers, with the summer house and garden table nearby for lunch by the pool, or dinner on a balmy summer evening. Four bicycles and two child seats are provided at no extra charge. 16 ‘pétanque’ boules can be found at the Château in case you fancy a boules contest between friends.
