What specific architectural features does your building have ?
The property is surrounded by a fully enclosed park of about two hectares. A heavy wrought iron gate opens onto an alley that leads to the two-storey chateau topped with a glazed tile roof. The two symmetrical houses, flanked by square towers at each end, are connected by a central avant-corps which is taller with a pavilion roof. Coats of arms dating from 1690 adorn the triangular pediment of the eastern facade. Inside, the parquet floors are covered with old red and terracotta tiles. The four-meter high ceilings add volume to the rooms, whilst the large windows on either side flood them with light and sun all day long. The ceilings are in the French style and the old fireplaces are stone. Many of the rooms still have wall panelling.
Places you would personally recommend
The chateau is eight kilometres from the centre of Roanne, a renowned "gastronomic city" recognised for its textile industry, markets, Italian-style theatre, Gallo-Roman pottery ovens from the second century, baptisteries from the High Middle-Ages, the donjon of 12th century castle and the Saint-Etienne church. The Joseph-Déchelette museum exhibits a collection of ceramics that is well worth a visit. Near the chateau, you will find the prestigious Maison Troisgros with three Michelin stars since 1968, a golf course and a specialist in the renovation of vintage cars. History buffs will enjoy the castle of La Roche overlooking the Loire from its rocky island and the castle of the Horns of Urfé at the top of a hill and in the heart of the forest. The impressive priory of Pommiers, which has stood the test of time, is a door to the world of art and transports visitors through a thousand years of history.
