Set in two hectares of land, accessed by a driveway that begins with two ancient pillars, the château is surrounded by trees and overlooks meadows, separated by a balustrade made from granite.

With its origins in the Middle Ages, the château comprises a keep dating back to the 13th century and a dwelling built in the Henri II style in the 19th century on the site of the original château's former stables.

Basement level: Underneath the château you will see the vaulted cellars which are a fascinating insight into ancient times.

The ground floor: This level comprises a large reception room with a Renaissance-style fireplace, leading to a further reception room with toilets and a large kitchen with many architectural features including a fireplace which dates from the Middle Ages.

1st floor: Here you will find a large bright reception room. This room has a fireplace dating from the 19th Century adorned with tiles with fleur-de-lys motifs, a splendid herringbone parquet floor and a painted coffered ceiling. From the hall, you will enter the Salon du Marquis, with a Renaissance-style fireplace, coffered ceiling and period floor tiles, that leads out onto the terrace.

2nd Floor: Here you will find the Chambre du Marquis, which includes a secondary kitchen, a large bedroom with its own Renaissance-style fireplace and bathroom, three other bedrooms and a separate bathroom.

3rd Floor: Located exclusively in the keep, here you will find two additional bedrooms with two separate bathrooms and a large attic space.

In the grounds as you enter through the driveway, you will find to your left a pigeonnier, which could perhaps be a studio.

The roof appears to be in good condition, but the château is in need of interior renovation to restore it to its former glory.

The property is flooded with light thanks to its many windows and the many features that have been preserved.
