Very rare. In the south of France, secluded medieval chateau in a commanding position. Swimming pool and gîte. Small in size but grand in history! This property is a former feudal lordship from the 13th century, marked by religious conflicts and successions. All that remains is the 14th century keep of the original bastide. This square tower proudly overlooks the valley with a magnificent 360° view of the hills, forests and vineyards. It was owned by a line of lords at the court of Kings Henry II and Henry IV. Twenty years ago, it was completely renovated and a second building was added in full respect of the origional one. The roofs, heating and electricity have been renovated to combine medieval features with modern comfort, reducing maintenance costs. On 7,750 sq. ft.: beautiful medieval living room with its large original fireplace and its conservatory/summer kitchen, large living/dining room, beautiful kitchen with its professional piano and dining area, 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sports room, covered terrace, air-conditioned wine cellar, etc... . 2 garages, car-port. The church below, which had been transformed into a sheepfold during the French Revolution, has become a large gîte sleeping 8, with 3 bedrooms, a large living room equipped with a stove, a garage and a beautiful terrace. The garden is planted with trees and flowers, with an infinity pool and a beach, on over 3 hectares of woodland bordering the river. The 360° view over the valley and the vineyards is magnificent. It is possible to complete this acquisition with a top-of-the-range wine estate of 49 acres, 3 km away, with wine tourism potential.
