GENERAL DESCRIPTION
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.
