A 17 m2 large playroom and two more bathrooms are situated on this floor. In addition, there are two smaller rooms 8 m2 and 7 m2 each that could be converted to extra bathrooms. The second floor also offers the possibility to convert into self-contained apartments if wanted.

The château, the farm and several outbuildings have recently been renovated with great care and respect of the environment and with using many original material and details. Still is it a modernized and efficient property, with own solar panels that keep the heating costs down. The property also has a new roof, new roof gutters, new roof insulation and double-glazed new windows. There are countless nooks and crannies that provide storage space on all floors.

The 145 m2 farm building next door is also renovated and functions as a popular 3-bedroom gîte with rental revenue all-year-round. Adjacent is an impressive barn of 340 m2 waiting to be fully renovated.

Four tours surround the courtyard where one of them used to be a chapel. A saltwater pool is in the south facing court of the château, overlooking the beautiful views.

There are so many interesting stories between these old walls. But one comes from the courtyard. The rose bushes that grow there are the same type of roses that where used in Coco Chanel’s perfume Chanel n°5.
