Situated within half an hour of Bergerac International Airport, and walkable into a village offering a great restaurant, epicerie and boulangerie, this property is an ideal family home, residence secondaire or indeed a rental business.

An excellent example of a Girondine Chateau, this property is presented in excellent order throughout, and, in addition to the six-bedroomed main chateau, includes an adjoining two-bedroomed Guardian's Cottage in similarly good order.  This is a fully operational vineyard with 8½ hectares of Première Cotes de Bordeaux, Bordeaux Superior and Cadillac appellations producing 360 hectolitres of wine per year. The chai is extremely well equipped, and comes complete with farm machinery etc. At the time of writing, the staff are all in place (including an English-speaker) - representing an exciting, complete 'vineyard in a box' acquisition, should the purchaser wish to continue the business with minimal additional input. Moreover, the property has also been run as a Chambre d'Hotes by the staff, offering further income generation potential.
