This house is in a sought-after village which is part of the urban area around Lyon, a reasonably-sized city. It is near to the very famous “Auberge du Pont de Collonges”, the starred restaurant owned by Paul-Bocuse. 15 minutes from the centre of the Gauls’ former capital, the outstanding historic heritage of which is continually being enhanced with contemporary creations.
15 minutes from the TGV train station (2 hour links to Paris), as well as the A6 motorway (4½ hours from Paris) and 40 minutes from Lyon-Saint-Exupéry international airport.
This chateau takes the form of a square building, flanked by two towers. One is round, the other square. Dating from the 13th century, it was redesigned in the 19th century. The main courtyard extends in front of the rendered facade, featuring regularly aligned, small-paned windows. The chateau spans four levels, three levels on the courtyard side, with an additional level on the garden side. The inside, spanning approx. 330 m², is not excessively large.
The watchtower stands at the entrance to the main courtyard. Spanning two levels, it is topped with a roof covered with glazed tiles. The front door opens into a room, featuring a stone fireplace. Red terracotta floor tiles complement a French ceiling. A recent stairway set in a corner of the room was built to provide access to the upper floor. Upstairs, the room is illuminated via openings, one of which leads to a balcony. There is an attic floor under the roofing framework.
The caretaker’s cottage and the outbuildings
The caretaker’s cottage and the outbuildings are laid out below the chateau and the main courtyard. They are reached via an entrance different to that leading to the main driveway. The caretaker’s cottage, spanning two levels, adjoins the other outbuildings. The ground floor comprises a boiler room and a garage. The living accommodation, on the first floor, comprises a kitchen, a lounge and two bedrooms, with a shower room and toilet. A woodshed and cellars complete these buildings.
Landscaped parklands span approx. 2½ ha. The terracing is enhanced with numerous fountains and waterfalls. The miscellaneous areas, on various levels, feature trees over one hundred years old. A superb bridle path, lined with plane trees, leads to a grassy esplanade that dominates the river Saône.
Florence was used as inspiration during the 19th century restoration works; after all, the Saône’s embankments in Lyon do vie with those of the Arno! The terraced garden, with its fountains, is reminiscent of Florence’s Boboli Gardens. Vestiges of the medieval stronghold are harmoniously blended with modest classical architecture. This is an extremely tasteful place of residence, set in natural surroundings on the outskirts of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. It could be extended through conversion of its outbuildings. New owners will be able to stroll along the plane-tree lined alleyway of an evening whilst they watch the sun set beyond the river, flowing slowly past at their feet.
