This gorgeous 17th-century property is located 25 km southwest of Bordeaux, in the Garonne valley. « The estate has unobstructed view over the landes forest and no contemporary building in sight. It’s like you live in the 19th century, says agence Lafaye. » The main castle, complete with two wings and a tower, has 20+ rooms including 10 bedrooms, vintage elements such as fireplaces and exposed beams, a museum, a private chapel, a ballroom and a park featuring wells, ponds and fountains. The 47-ha domain includes 21ha of vines. Last year’s production was 445 hectolitres of côtes de Bordeaux and 149 hectolitres of white Bordeaux. Other highlights include a holiday cottage and three separate houses. Sold with the staff, the estate is only 20 minutes away from Bordeaux train station.
