Chateau | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
A grand manor house with a pleasing renaissance exterior. The red brick central portion is framed by the handsome estate gates, and is embellished with a wonderfully intricate wrought iron balcony, whose curlicues are echoed at the rear of the house. It is flanked by two plastered wings, painted warm white. The soothing symmetry of the entrance is punctuated in typical formal fashion by box topiary. The Chateau has a quirky interior, full of original touches, handsome enfilades through beautifully marbled and decorated doorways and arches to tall French windows.
Entrance Hall: The Chateau has a most imposing entrance, the hall a harlequin of old tiles, lit by a chandelier, with an arched and pillared central staircase leading up to the bedrooms.
Dining Room: Classic French elegance with a polished wooden floor, colour washed tall wooden shutters and panelling, the walls adorned with a fresco of tropical foliage, this is the perfect venue for intimate dinner parties among friends.
Grand Salon: A large, well-lit, somewhat formal room, with its Persian rug-strewn parquet floor, carved stone fireplace, and views to the garden. This room opens into
Family Salon: Casual, comfortable, furnished with capacious sofas, the walls covered with botanical prints.
