Located only 30 minutes from the center of Bordeaux, in a quiet residential area with everything you might need – numerous shops, schools, and the tram station, you’ll stumble upon this magnificent 17th-century chateau.
This mansion consists of 400m2 of living space that’s surrounded by a huge park with century-old trees and beautiful greenery. The main building offers large convivial spaces with a large kitchen, generous lounges with their imposing stone fireplaces as well as a reception room that’d be delightful for every wine tasting or billiards lover. It also has 6 amazing bedrooms for when friends and family come over, but the master suite is something else – is a beautiful space with its adjoining reading room and a private terrace overlooking the gorgeous gardens. There really is no better way to wake up in the morning and drink your coffee than to watch these beautiful views from the terrace.
The outbuilding of 70 m2 you’ll see outside was recently built and could be used for various projects such as caretaker’s accommodation, rental potential, or even offices for a home-based business. Last but not least, a beautiful heated swimming pool awaits outside right next to the gardens and adds up to this stunning mansion’s looks.
About the place:
Bordeaux is the main city of the Gironde department in France. It has been a major wine-making and trading center, as well as an important strategic fortification built by Vauban for Louis XIV. The city’s architecture reflects this history with both medieval houses and classical buildings such as Notre Dame de la Belle Verrière Church, which was constructed in 1935 to replace two former religious edifices, destroyed during World War II, among other architectural attractions.
Today, Bordeaux is a vibrant tourist destination and cultural center that captures the essence of France with its timeless architecture and historical significance. Visitors can enjoy several day trips from Paris, while staying in comfortable hotels or apartments for rent near the city’s most important landmarks, such as Place de la Comédie where opera theaters are located. The surrounding countryside also offers more than 500 wine-producing estates, along with vineyards to explore by foot, bicycle, or bus tour, so visitors may fully experience everything Bordeaux has to offer, including local wines paired alongside fabulous meals at restaurants established within ancient châteaus dating back centuries ago.
