Dominating the beautiful surrounding Aquitaine countryside from its elevated position, with panoramic views over vineyards, orchards and meadows, this magnificent Chateau is conveniently located about an hour by car (or c.20 mins by helicopter) from Bordeaux and Bergerac airports, in a region noted for its sunny microclimate, favoured by wonderful cool breezes from the Atlantic. Several of the lively historic towns of the Bastide region are nearby, with a wide choice of restaurants, markets, shops and all other practical & leisure amenities. Originally constructed 1000 years ago, and modified in the late 16th century, the Chateau offers classic French historic charm & prestige, but has been renovated and finished to an exceptionally high standard to provide all the comforts of a luxury modern residence; it is available fully-furnished. The main building offers spacious accommodation including 2 large salons (one with top quality B&O cinema system), dining room, breakfast room, bar, 7 bedrooms + bath/shower rooms, kitchen & sundry other rooms. An impressive detached courtyard complex includes stables, garaging for up to 9 cars, a custom-built exercise/games annexe, offices, workshop, store rooms, laundry cleaning & storage facilities, boiler & pump room, and the 39ft x 19.5ft swimming pool (with Roman ends). The property also includes a guest/guardian cottage, with fully-equipped kitchen/dining room, salon, utility room, boiler room/store, 3 bedrooms and 2 bath/shower rooms, and a separate large part-converted barn with a one-bedroom apartment. For those seeking equestrian use, the property offers stabling, barn space for a ménage, and more than 20 hectares of pastures. For wine enthusiasts, the Chateau is within easy reach of the prestige wine regions of the Gironde such as St Emilion, and if a new owner wishes to produce their own wines, several vineyards local to the Chateau are available for sale (including one carrying the name of the Chateau).
