  • 16m swimming pool, tennis court
  • Carp lake & black bass lake
  • Coach house
  • 600m driveway lined with red plum trees

Summary

Located only a few kilometres from a Bastide Town, and yet discreetly tucked away at the end of a private driveway extending some 600m, many locals don't even know this delightful domaine exists! Set around a courtyard, it offers seven bedrooms including a totally self-contained Guest Wing. Although surrounded on all sides by magnificent trees, it is light and airy throughout, and has stunning views thanks to its elevated position - including over one of its two lakes from the south-facing kitchen terrace. 
 
In addition to the lakes, the land comprises well-cared for gardens that enclose the chateau, with woods, meadows and orchards to its flanks. There are great recreational facilities - a swimming pool (with kids end), tennis court, carp and black bass fishing, as well as plenty of land.

SWIMMING POOL   15m x 6m
Located just to the side of the chateau, the pool is equipped with a hard cover, and has a great kids end - shallow and bounded by a small underwater wall. It has steps leading from the kids area into the main pool.

CARP LAKE     
Not only does this pretty lake provide a great view from the kitchen terrace, it is teaming with carp - great for those budding fishermen. Hidden in the woods is another lake, smaller in size but deep, where black bass can be found.

DRIVEWAY   600 m
Although straight, the 600m driveway is so long that it hides the treasure that lies at its end. Lined with hundred of red plum trees, it provides a wealth of colour for much of the year.

OLD CHAPEL     
Flanking the long driveway, this old chapel gives a hint of what lies ahead. For those romantics out there, it could convert into a wonderful little folly.

REAR DRIVEWAY & ORCHARD     
The rear driveway leads to the tennis court, through the orchard brimming with fruit trees and wild orchids.

COACH HOUSE     
Although now used only as storage, the Coach House could equally convert into another guest house / guardian's cottage - or indeed revert to its original use as stable block and coach house.  The building is served by electricity.

STABLES   7.73m (25'4") x 5.06m (16'7")
Window to front, window to rear, original hay mangers. Concrete Floor, double door to:

COACH ROOM   7.70m (25'3") x 4.65m (15'3")
Window to front, two windows to side, window to rear, Suspended wooden floor over storage room below, two doors.

GARDEN     
The garden has been planted with all manner of rare trees, flowers and shrubs, ensuring all-round colour and foliage, and privacy. Moreover, we are lead to believe that there is an irrigation system that supplies the garden with water from the lower lake – but we are advised that the power to the pump house needs to be reinstated.
