Rare 16th century château, situated in a wooded estate of 18 hectares, which also includes a park and a vineyards. The estate is situated on a dominant part of a hill and thus offers splendid views that change with the four seasons. The history of this property is rich and accompanies the eventful history of what will become the Aquitaine region. The château is marked by the wars of decolonization, then of religion which mark the region, and then in 1622 it was partially destroyed. Of the original building, a splendid entrance door remains, very much in the Renaissance style. The estate enjoyed a beneficial stability during the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century, which greatly favoured its architectural evolution. The building passed through the French Revolution, and at the end of this rich and essential period of French history, underwent some further refurbishment, which was completed by a thorough renovation at the beginning of the 19th century, and more precisely from 1830. In short, this property is a testimony to the eventful history of a region whose charm and richness have been shaped over the centuries by many changes and movements, all of which are reflected in these historic stones. It is more than a property that is offered to the buyer but a timeless piece of French history in an endearing part of the South West, which has preserved its historical traditions and art of living. The architectural authenticity and the layout of this château will allow the future owner to give a new impetus, to breathe new life into the property. The estate will be suitable for its lucky purchaser as a main residence as well as a leisure residence. The available surface areas, both in terms of buildings and land, are perfectly suited to hosting a wine tourism activity or a bed and breakfast. The Estate is comprised of 45 acres of land in total. 26 acres devoted to woodland and parkland, 19 acres are cultivated under vine - (13a Red & 6a White). For wine enthusiasts, the château is within the AOC Entre-Deux-Mers and AOC Bordeaux Supérieur, with farm buildings and wine production equipment necessary for the viticulture. Properties such as this one are very rare and sought after, not only because of their character, but also because of their proximity to the lively city of Bordeaux, which is of great historical and cultural interest and is an ambassador for the art of living in the South West of France. It also benefits from the proximity of an international airport serving all the European and Mediterranean capitals.
