Exquisite property

Cévennes, A dream castle in the Cevennes


The two buildings on either side of a courtyard

This 16th and 17th Century castle is a must-see, with some units dating back to the 12th Century. Built next to a Roman church,it also features a tower next to a vast apartment. Entirely refurbished, the castle provides 970 sq m of living space. The first floor hosts the reception areas, a huge living room and a vaulted office leading to the terraces. Eight bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, occupy the second and third floors. Says Emile Garcin Uzès: "This is an elegant castle, even though the moats and the drawbridge are gone. But the fireplace, the bread oven in the basement and the round tower are still standing." Additionally, a refurbished 250 sq m apartment features three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor while the basement hosts a kitchen, a living room and a laundry room. Two separate reception areas (150sqm and 110 sq m) can be converted. Other features include a keeper's house, vaulted cellars, old stables and barns. Prospective buyers can also acquire the 257-acre forest next to this 15-acre property.
