An old,15th century chateau on a 13-ha estate in the area around Roanne.
This property, combining town and country, is in the midst of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, between the Saône-et-Loire, Rhône and Puy-de-Dôme departments. It is 6 minutes away from the historic centre of Roanne, an hour away from Lyon and 50 minutes away from Saint-Étienne by motorway. The town of Roanne, with its historic centre, its pedestrian streets and its markets, is linked to Lyon, with trains running every 30 minutes to Lyon-Par-Dieu TGV train station, and to its international airport via the Rhône-Express tramway.
Protected from all visual and audible nuisances, this Renaissance-style chateau has been lived in since the Gallo-Roman era. It is reached via a lane going through a wood, concealing all of the buildings. Gates open on to a large courtyard which, set in the middle of an estate spanning 13 continuous hectares of woods and meadows, is bordered by all of the buildings. The limits are visible, marked by tall trees forming a natural perimeter wall. Destroyed by fire in 1594 during the Holy League Wars, the chateau was rebuilt immediately afterwards. Restored, it still currently features stone mascarons representing people on the west facade of the large interior courtyard. Jeanne-Chézard-de-Matel, founder of the Order of the Incarnate Word, was born here. The Poulot family inherited the property at the end of the 19th century.
The chateauEntirely modernised, the impressive, symmetrical and rectangular building, with its classical facade, faces east over the meadows and a small lake. Its three levels, each spanning approx. 280 m², are topped with attic space covered with a roof featuring dormers. A large, vaulted cellar, ideal for tasting evenings, takes up a section of the basement.
Ground floor
Double glazed doors open into a little gallery which runs the length of the west side of the building, giving access to all the rooms on the ground floor. It is followed by a vast entrance hall that opens into a large dining room, its semi-open-plan kitchen, enhanced with a glass-panelled window, and a storeroom. These rooms are extended by a corner lounge, with its three large windows, its fireplace and its mosaic floor tiles, featuring daisy motifs. A toilet, with a wash-hand basin, can be reached via the lounge. The gallery provides access to two bedrooms, a study, a dressing room, a shower room and a separate toilet. Also on this level, a last bedroom, with its little lounge area as well as its shower room and toilet, can be reached directly from the gallery or via a door opening off of the interior courtyard.
First floor
A stone stairway goes up to the first floor on either side of the building, thus keeping the owners’ living area private from the guest bedrooms. A large corridor leads to one of the seven bedrooms, all fitted with their own private shower rooms and toilets.
Second floor
The top floor comprises four bedrooms, each with its own shower room and toilet, as well as a suite, spanning approx. 80 m², with a lounge, a bedroom, a bathroom and a toilet. The suite is predominantly used for newly-weds on their wedding night.
A large, vaulted, stone cellar, with gravel flooring, is currently used for wine tasting. Two small cellars, laid out longwise, can be reached from the vaulted cellar.
