There is a possibility to buy more land in the neighbourhood. General condition The Chateau as it stands today has been built in 1880 and has been continuously looked after. It is in very good condition on the ground floor and first floor. Maybe just the kitchen and plumbing  would benefit from updating to your taste. All original elements are still there and in perfect condition, such as floors, fireplaces, staircase, wooden panelling, wall and ceiling decoration, doors with handles etc. The second floor needs total renovation. The joineries are wooden simple glazing, wooden shutters, alarm with video surveillance. The tourism activity (2 Gtes, 6 B&B and the reception area, Spa and pool area) have been recently created and are totally renovated with top quality materials such as oak, marble. All those accommodations have a very high standard, offering the comfort of a **** Hotel. All comply with the actual required norms and are fully functional. Alarm system. The business is just about to take off. The various empty stone buildings which could be developed into further accommodation, depending on your projects, are all sound and in rather very good structural condition. The buildings connected with the wine business which are currently used of which the vats are only a small part are also in very good condition and conform to current regulations. Some technical information 6 wells feed the Chteau with water which doesnt have a filter system or special treatment today; there is a septic tank which might need updating. The buildings dedicated for the actual touristic business have their own water feed with cheap agriculture water which gets filtered and UV-treated to become perfect drinking water. Those buildings have their own waste treatment applying to the regulations. The property disposes about triple phase electricity. Comments This large and beautiful property offers a prestigious luxury home and is a good tool to further develop various commercial activities (wine, tourism, golf, equestrian etc. to give just some ideas), based on the actual activities, the huge potential and thanks to the extraordinary geographical location sea, cities, airports, motorway, railway - all nearby but far enough to have peace!!
