An old Cluniac priory, redesigned in the 18th century, an hour from Lyon in the south of Burgundy.
This property, along the Paris-Lyon-Marseille economic and tourist route, is near to Mâcon-Loché TGV train station as well as the A6 and A40 motorways. Consequently, the towns of Lyon, Paris, Geneva and Dijon can easily be reached in less than two hours. The clunysois and mâconnais regions are set between the “langue d’Oc” and “langue d’Oïl” dialects, between flat and Roman roof tiles, and where the borders of the administrative powers as well as the aesthetic influences of Paris and Rome meet. La-Roche-de-Solutré, Cluny Abbey, vine-growing hillsides and the literary work of Alphonse-de-Lamartine are but a few examples of the region’s natural, architectural, historic, and cultural wealth.
This site is set on a rocky, limestone spur, admirably dominating the surrounding hills, dotted with bocage countryside, vineyards and deciduous forests. As of the 11th century, under the rule of Abbot Hugues-de-Semur, the priory was closely linked to the neighbouring Cluny abbey and therefore became one of the 1,400 properties belonging to the Cluny Order throughout Europe. In addition to its farming vocation, it was used for accommodating important guests, away from the hustle and bustle of the main abbey. The buildings, currently for sale, were reconstructed in the middle of the 18th century. Sold as National Property in 1791, the estate retained its farming and, notably, wine-growing vocation up until the middle of the 20th century. A porchway provides access to a vast courtyard, delimited by the buildings, pleasantly preserved since their construction and laid out in a circular shape following the lie of the rocky spur. Beyond the perimeter wall, an independent caretaker’s cottage provides access to the road.
The large, luxurious homeThis large, luxurious home was constructed between courtyard and garden in 1740. With a quadrangular layout, it spans two levels under an impressive hip roof, covered with flat tiles. It is flanked to the south-west by a robust tower, rising up four floors and topped with attic space, housing dove-holes, and a steep hip roof. This tower, like a lookout post keeping watch on the surrounding countryside, is a cross between a stately tower and a traditional local dovecote, marking the ambivalence of the estate between its noble and farming uses. On the courtyard side, a wide porchway delimits the food crop activities from those of the main house and the chapel dedicated to cultural and accommodation needs. Inside, a dogleg, stone stairway with a central newel wall, goes up to all the floors.
Garden level
In the tower, an independent summer lounge, exuding a frivolous air, looks out over the parklands. It is paved with hexagonal terracotta tiles and enhanced with moulded cornices, a dark marble fireplace and walls covered with motifs resembling Toile-de-Jouy wallpaper.
In the main building, two rooms are laid out on either side of the stone stairway. A vast kitchen, paved with terracotta tiles and featuring a stone fireplace as well as a stone sink, faces a more refined room, embellished with panelling, terracotta floor tiles and an alcove, housing a ceramic wood-burning stove. These are followed by a few steps providing access to two vast, vaulted, stone cellars.
First floor
The mezzanine makes it possible to access the courtyard and the outbuildings. The first floor, with the function of a “noble floor”, is given over to reception rooms. On one side of the stairway, a flat, paved with terracotta tiles, comprises an anteroom, with a Louis XVI style stone fireplace, a bedroom and a dressing room. On the other side of the stairway, an authentic dining room, exuding old-fashioned charm, is enhanced with parquet flooring, walls lined with wallpaper, featuring chestnut …
