The grounds are crossed by at least two Roman roads and the 12th century church has pre-Christian tombs dating back to the 4th century. It is quite possible that the site has been in use for more than 2000 years. The Château, its West wing and Tower and Hermitage have all been recently renovated to the highest standard. The Roman style Church has also been renovated with the roof and walls requiring major works after a July 2006 storm. The main heating system is 'Geo Thermal' and all the buildings have been renovated with conservation and ecology in mind. The swimming pool dimensions are 13x5m. The Grounds: The Château is set in its own estate and farmland bordered by two rivers. A recent tree/hedge planting program has been undertaken and land set aside with a spring fed lake being reinstated to encourage bird life. At present we have Kingfishers (one pair of new arrivals this year) nesting and feeding in two sites, Peregrine Falcon and Barn Owl in the church tower, along with many other species in the surrounding area. We are trying to encourage other wildlife to take up residence.. with particular emphasis on extra bat & swift, swallow nest sites. Though we already have a healthy population. The grounds & grass areas have many different species of wild flower,orchid & mushroom.. Our wild field area has been a success with many birds, deer and hare using it for cover.. especially during winter. We have an extensive planting plan for this autumn, including trees, hedges, vineyard, orchard and lavender rows.. Some of our planting is for offsetting our carbon footprint. Weddings, Events, Seminars, Theatre: With our own Church, Banquet Hall and gardens this is the ideal setting for a wedding. Ideal if you are looking for an Event base (music, theatre, collectors car meet) or a place for Seminars or music courses. Or a photographic or film location. The terraces and balconies are also ideal for a theatre or music event.. with the audience sat around the lake below.. We can supply catering on site ourselves or liase with local catering specialists. (though not for weddings) we have a large open fire for spit roasting in the Old Kitchens and a 7ft barbeque built in to the inner courtyard. The Courtyard, areas around the Church, terraces or lake are ideal for displaying Vintage or Collectors Cars..

"Superb superb superb!!!!!"
What a fabulous find! The chateau was absolutely wonderful. Karine and Adrian have created a wonderful holiday destination and we cannot recommend enough how fantastic it was. The rooms were beautifully appointed - we stayed in the 3 bedroom gite - tour blanc - it was lovely, the bedrooms gorgeous, the kitchen as well equipped as mine at home and all the bits and pieces you need. The pool was fabulous, clean and just perfect size - our son spent 6 hours a day in it at least! The grounds are beautiful - karine didn't stop gardening the whole time we were there and Adrian was hard at work both working to improve - and they did this every day. Both available at any time for a chat but not intrusive. The B and B bit looked wonderful and karine a breakfasts made me up the quality in my holiday kitchen! There is also a four bedroom apartment there - also gorgeous! Cannot recommend enough - we will go back next year if we can! Are we related to karine and Adrian with such a great review, are we old friends....neither we are just very happy customers and hopefully new friends to them and to their wonderful home. Thank you both - we will be back!
