Cognac region, 20 minutes south of Angouleme (TGV), 90 minutes form Bordeaux and just over 2 hours from Paris by train.

Nestled at the end of a long track passing pretty patchwork fields, the Chateau (ISMH) suddenly appears and, upon arriving through heavy aged oak doors, you enter an entirely walled-in property.

Within the courtyard space are white hydrangeas, iron-forged details and stone walls which frame a manicured lawn. Every detail has been tastefully and meticulously thought-through.

The exteriors are austere, with monumental walls and beautiful proportions. There are turrets and towers.

The main house has a stone stair dating to the late XIV century, the oldest architectural element within the enclosed compound.
Further on, the main house offers stunning views south over a picturesque valley filled with trees and wildlife. Taste and refinement typify the splendid renovation (2007) featured in many international interior design magazines and European television programs.
The architecture is a combination of Medieval and Renaissance craftsmanship together with the recent renovation; a gracious harmony.

The estate boasts a profoundly sophisticated natural elegance and comfort.
In addition to the main house (320m2) is the restored guest room wing (100m2) with 3 independent guest suites, the fully equipped guest cottage (88m2) (in total 6 bedrooms en suite), a separate reception room of 113m2,  the 3 boxes with direct access to 1.5 hectares of grazing space and a 40m x 20m arena, heated tack room, garage for two cars, laundry room annex.
There are a stone farm and barn to restore. The grounds total 6.3 Ha. No neighbors within 1 km distance. The only traffic noise you hear is by the two horses in the field.

In the outbuildings overlong the courtyard (100m2) are three beautiful guest suites and the two story guest cottage (88m2) with open fireplace. They have central heating, private entrances, and have been stylishly decorated in the same rustic contemporary manner. 
The beautiful restored Barn (113m2) is used as an additional dining room or for receptions. 
Stables (3 boxes) with direct access to 1.5 hectares of grazing space and a 40m x 20m arena, heated tack room, 
Two car garage
One farm and barn situated beyond the courtyard

The grounds in total 6.3 Ha.

Heated salt water swimming pool.

The roofs are new (2007), so are the electricity (2006) and plumbing throughout the property. New oak windows

Today the Chateau and its outbuildings have been faithfully restored with native materials and the interior design has been interpreted with a contemporary twist.

Please ask for the drone movie recently produced.
