Fully restored over the last 15 years, the Chateau now boasts the grandeur of stone vaulted ceilings and monumental fireplaces, and yet is extremely comfortable and homely. It is a very rare find indeed! Set around two sides of the courtyard, and enjoying wonderful views looking outward towards the north and west, the day-to-day accommodation is spread over one floor. There is a large Kitchen which also has a breakfast area, and a seating area in front of the large open fireplace. The kitchen area itself, based around a large island, is fully equipped. French doors lead onto the north garden as well as the covered terrace in the courtyard. The Living Room is very much the heart of the house, with a large open fireplace, and internal doors to the sitting room and kitchen, but also out into the courtyard via French doors. Ideal for large groups, there is also a small Sitting Room for quieter times. From the Sitting Room, there are stairs down to the Vaulted Dining Room which seats 16 easily and the Vaulted Drawing Room.
