This 14th century château has been lived in continuously, is in a good state of structural repair and has not had its interior disfigured by insensitive modernisation.
It offers 3 floors each of 250m2 or 2,700 square foot. On the ground floor are 6 vaulted caves, on the first floor you’ll find 8 rooms and on the second floor are 8 rooms to renovate. The 3 towers of different periods are each of specific architectural interest.
The château has a landscaped garden, completely enclosed of 3,000m2 or 3⁄4 of an acre.
In 2002 an English landscape gardener began transforming the garden, the work is still in progress.
An independent guest house of 92m2 or 1,000 square foot is modernized and offers 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom.
There are two more side buildings belonging to this property: a 3rd house, needing repair and an agricultural building to renovate.
This 14th to 19th century château is officially listed as a “Monument Historique”. This not only gives it protection against local development, it makes available government grants
for repairs and improvement.
The château is located in an unspoiled village of rural southern Aveyron: wooded hills, small fields, rushing streams.
A village shop, a café, a family-run restaurant providing traditional French cooking
Are just a bike ride down the road, while all the usual shops and a supermarket
are 15 minutes by car.
A larger town, with a Saturday market selling local - often organic - produce
is only 9 miles further.
24 miles to the highway A75

Less than 10 minutes from the château, one of Europe's major festivals of sacred music – representing all religions – is held every summer, attracting some of the world's best-known choirs, soloists and performers. With year-round workshops and courses.
Yes, this is rural France – but it's buzzing.
