The property is of historical importance because it was once the entrance to the gardens of an important local chateau. The chateau has its foundations in the 12th century and the house's large vaulted inner hall still has some of the original stairway and stonework. The present owners have restored and renovated the entire property faithfully which gives it a context and a sense of style which is unique.
Because of its original role, the house is in an exceptional setting. To one side is the chateau and to the other are sweeping views from the ramparts across the surrounding countryside. In addition to the setting, the house is on the edge of a delightful village and a breakfast croissant or evening glass of wine in a local cafe is only a short walk away.
