The commune is an old farming village which grew as of the 12th century with the construction of a castle by the archbishop of Lyon, to the south-west of the city. Still today, it is bordered by hundreds of hectares of orchards. It is especially sought-after by the inhabitants of the city as it has some beautiful views of the hills around Lyon and of Mount Pilat.
The TGV train station (2 hours from Paris) is but 20 minutes away, the A7 motorway (4½ hours for the French capital) is 5 minutes away and Lyon-Saint-Exupéry international airport is 30 minutes away.
The 2-storey, Renaissance period residence
This residence, spanning two levels in a corner of the chateau, predominantly faces south. It opens on to a private garden. Mullioned and arched windows contribute to the elegance of the facades. It is accessed via a patio where a Provencal atmosphere reigns. A private, west-facing terrace, paved with flagstones, extends in front of the entrance. This residence comes with a cellar. Spaces reserved for the parking of cars are laid out at the entrance to the patio.
The garden, the waterfall and the old greenhouse
This private, south-facing garden is laid out in front of the kitchen and the living room. Spanning approx. 1,000 m², it is on the edge of a cherry orchard. A terracotta-paved terrace extends in front of a waterfall, topped with an old greenhouse. This structure had not been restored but still has its curved metal framework. It is reached on either side of the waterfall by a small, stone, horseshoe-shaped stairway. The waterfall is fed from an old water storage tank concealed under the greenhouse. In the midst of the vegetation and going around a one hundred year old tree, a pathway winds through the garden and goes up to a raised section that forms yet another area for relaxing.
The cellar and the car parking spaces
The chateau’s large vaulted cellar has been divided and each residence has a closed cellar. They are reached from the patio via an outside stone stairway and the temperature is ideal for laying down wine. The patio is connected via an opening to the chateau’s communal entrance hall. It also features wooden carriage doors, not far from the old stone wash-house, which opens on to the chateau’s external outbuildings. This property comes with two car parking spaces. Another parking area at the entrance to the chateau is reserved for visitors.
The purchase of this property would mean returning of an evening from the busy city of Lyon, relaxing in a historic residence without having to pay all the running costs and contemplating the Alps in the distance whilst already being somewhat in the country. The division of the chateau has shared its character, the authenticity of its still intact decor as well as the burden of its upkeep. Such a formula enhances autonomy and privacy especially as this 2-storey residence has its own garden. Living in this chateau has no downsides.
