The grounds are well developed and beautifully maintained. A balustrade with stone pediments frames a terraced area to the rear of the chateau which
benefits from lovely views.

A magnificent orangery with 8 arched windows and a central doorway sits in the center of the grounds providing a harmonious balance with the surrounding parkland.

To the rear there is a handsome wooden
frame garden house.


The property sits in the heart of a rural commune shielded by a magnificent park and tall walls sealed by tall wrought iron gates.
