Property Description

Hidden on the edge of a charming village a short drive away from a little town with a good selection of amenities and a little further to the bustling market towns of Chinon and Bourgueil this impressive 16th/17th century home is beautifully presented and offers plentiful accommodation for family and guests alike. With a great swimming pool, sun terrace, tennis court, Pétanque pitch, pond and manicured formal gardens the outdoor space is as welcoming as the inside.

THE ACCOMMODATION

The current owners have lovingly maintained and improved this home and today it offers an elegant mix of modern and traditional with large reception rooms, a practical and sizeable family kitchen, formal entrance hall, double dining halls, library, shower and steam room and office space on the ground floor. The original stone and wooden features have been retained where possible and the rooms offer plenty of natural light from the large windows.

The first floor provides 4 large bedrooms with four bathrooms (most en-suite) and all with views over the garden and park. The upper floor offers another 4 bedrooms including an impressive “wedding suite” and enormous “games room” with feature beam work and corner kitchen … an ideal indoor escape area. Note: the furniture may be available subject to negotiations.

OUTSIDE

You are spoilt with what is on offer: an original chapel from the 13/16th century in excellent condition, the former “outbuilding” is now home to the “pool house” (relaxation area, changing area, dining area, etc...) which leads  nicely onto the sun terrace around the pool. Adjoining the pool house is the guest lodge an independent house with its own kitchen, lounge/diner, charming conservatory and 3 bedrooms and bathroom. The area above the pool house is ripe for conversion if further accommodation is required.

Hidden behind the walled gardens we have the hard tennis pitch in excellent condition and just next door the pétanque pitch if your guests fancy a go at the French national pastime. The formal gardens are stunning with an abundance of roses and other flowers throughout the year. The orchard is extensive with more than enough for pies, cakes and more.

The park which surrounds the chateau is spacious and offers plenty of areas to sit in shade and listen to the birds whilst reading a book or two. There are two formal patio terraces on two sides of the chateau both with easy access from the kitchen.

There are several fountains and mature trees as well as a good selection of other plants. The original “entrance” gate provides a historic link to the importance of the site and today the electric main gates provide the convenience we all look for.
