Overlooking the hills of Vercors

The four angled towers provide a breathtaking view

At the gates of Provence stands a splendid 17th century Italian-style castle, surrounded by magnificent greenery and the mountains of Ardèche. It provides 850 sq m of living space around a courtyard and four towers. "This imposing estate is very welcoming," stresses Emile Garcin Drôme. All vintage elements have been preserved: a vast entrance hall with a great staircase, a kitchen, several vaulted laundry rooms, and three magnificent en suite living rooms with fireplaces. The first floor houses various bedrooms with frescos and a splendid reception area with a French ceiling, for a total of ten bedrooms. 700 sq m of attic and two warehouses round up the sale. Located in a 6.3-ha park, the castle is 15 min from Valence and the A7 motorway. Lyon's intl airport is an hour's drive away.
