Central heating throughout. Garage available for precious cars. No smoking in the cháºteau and, sorry, no dogs.
History.The oldest part of the cháºteau was built as a winehouse in 1668. From a height of ten metres, the grapes were dropped into the [manmade] caves below, where there were two wine presses. The first owner was Phiippe Barateau, a lawyer who defended convicted protestants by means of the Réligion Prétendue Réformée, and opened his house to them. A century later the middle part of the house was added. About 1850 the third part was built, which has noticeably more spacouis rooms and higher ceilings.
The Chateau is located south of the river Loire, close to Loudun and 25 km south of Chinon and Saumur.
