Hidden away behind two sets of gates at the end of a long driveway passing through woodland, this impressive 19 century chateau has been beautifully renovated over a number of years by the current owners. An idyllic escape from the real world offering plenty of space for family and friends with direct access to the gulf of Morbihan a short distance from La Trinité sur Mer in the Brittany area.
The chateau itself has 4 floors of accommodation and from the “garden floor” right up to the top floor each room has been restored and is well presented.
The main floor provides several large reception rooms with many ornate and original features including wood paneling (with drop down drink trays – a unique original feature), fireplaces and painted ceilings. The main reception hall is spacious and light with uninterrupted views over the front lawn.
Another unique feature, in the kitchen this time, is the original hand/pulley operated dumb-waiter which travels from the garden floor (where the original kitchen would have been) up to the bedrooms on the first floor and like the rest of the property this has been restored and is in excellent condition.
The gently winding main stairs lead you up to the first floor with 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms along with access to the terrace and jacuzzi area over the front porch. The upper floor provides a further 5 bedrooms with bathroom and dressing rooms. The garden floor has a several vaulted rooms along with the practical side of boiler rooms, laundry, etc...
Framed by its sumptuous 8 hectare park, the chateau watches over the long path down to the gated entrance with the driveway passing around the front lawn and up to the front of the chateau. The “king’s tree”, a magnificent grouping of three separate trees formed into one, to one side of the lawn offers a super al-fresco or relaxation area with views back to the chateau of over the park and beyond.
The paths in the park are lined with rhododendron bushes and mature trees offering shade from the summer sun permitting you to stroll within the grounds and down to the water’s edge where a chalet awaits you for a relaxing sit overlooking the water.
Within the grounds there is also the restored chapel and what is left of the original chateau. This property is a private home that has been used for various weddings and its proximity to the gulf and Trinité sur Mer provide excellent access to all the local amenities.
