Castle Ales (30)

A restored, 18th century chateau and its olive grove in 120 hectares between the ArdÚche gorges and UzÚs.
On the outskirts of a little village, on the plain, with an extended view over the ArdÚche and Cévennes mountain ranges as well as the limestone hills in the direction of UzÚs. This estate is bordered by a river for more than a kilometre. The property also includes a landing strip for private planes.
This estate forms a completely unspoilt property still exuding its 18th century character. It comprises the actual chateau, stables, a silkworm farm and an orangery, to which were recently added a new house and an oil mill, intended to conduct the crushing of the property’s olives on site. The building housing the chain pump that once fed the water tanks is still in place. The constructions are set out in the middle of this estate with approx. 120 hectares comprising flat, irrigated land, predominantly planted with cereal or yearly crops. The rest encompasses parklands and an olive grove with some 1,500 trees.
The chateauThis listed chateau is constructed on foundations dating from the 14th century, of which remain two towers on the entrance facade. The entire building was redesigned following a fire during the Wars of Religion and was completely transformed and considerably extended in the 1780s. The pillars of the large entrance gateway with its majestic wrought iron gates, the outside horseshoe-shaped stairway, the balustrades, the terrace looking out over the ArdÚche mountains, the gardens, the orangery and the stone profile and contours under the overhanging cornice are characteristic of the Louis XVI era, as are the fireplaces and the interior decoration.
Garden level
Semi-underground in places and on garden level in others, all the rooms on this floor are vaulted. This is the oldest section that once contained the kitchens, storerooms and cellars which could possibly be reorganised.
Ground floor
Raised in relation to the garden level, this reception floor can be reached from the main courtyard via a horseshoe-shaped stairway, preceding a terrace. On the opposite side, lounges open via French windows on to a 90 m² terrace, currently covered with an atrium and bordered with balusters. The front door opens directly into the vestibule which was redesigned over two levels at the beginning of the 19th century. It provides access to several lounges with fireplaces, a billiards’ room, a study and recent professional kitchens.
First floor
An Italian-style balcony corridor at the top of the stairway goes around the vestibule, providing access to three suites and six bedrooms, each with bathroom and toilet.
