Castle

Full Description

13th century historic residence of 850 m2 with park and swimming pool

This ISMH class castle, built in the 13th century and rebuilt between the 15th and 17th centuries, has a medieval infrastructure and part of the Empire and Renaissance style. To date the owners have restored with great care and sublimated all the architectural elements of the building with noble materials.

A picturesque entrance, framed by two magnificent towers, opens onto a sublime landscaped park of 7,795 m2 composed of different species of trees with the majestic Montpellier stiles as a backdrop; also a pleasant swimming pool area (15 x 5.5 m) with a contemporary fountain, and, facing the house, imposing plane trees give all the contrast of this magical and subtle place.

The ground floor welcomes you through a beautiful Louis XIII entrance door onto a vestibule where a corridor leads to a pleasant summer living room with a fully equipped kitchen opening onto the garden, a gym with shower and sauna, 2 bedrooms and a remarkable wine cellar and outbuildings. A wide and majestic stone staircase leads up to the first floor to a pleasant gallery that leads to the various reception rooms on the first floor, including a charming living room with a rare 17th century wooden fireplace and French-style ceiling. On the other side of the living room, a vast and luminous Louis XVIII bedroom with bathroom (washbasin, bathtub cabinet).

Back to the elegant gallery, a rare dining room with double doors and adjoining kitchen. On this same wing, 3 bedrooms, one of which is located in the corner tower dating from the 13th century, as well as a bathroom. On the same level is a small TV lounge (former antechamber) which subtly overlooks the main staircase.

From the staircase, these same gentle steps lead to the second floor which consists of two very large bedrooms and several rooms and attics with high ceilings.

The property also has an independent two-room apartment with a floor to be converted, which opens up to many possibilities for conversion and is just waiting to be finished.

Oil-fired central heating and mains drainage.

This rare property has been the residence of King Louis XIII, Cardinal de Richelieu and probably the Emperor Napoleon.

The facades, roofs and the two entrance towers are listed in the inventory of Historic Monuments.

Great location: Uzes : 15 minutes and Nimes : 20 minutes
