castles / chateaux for sale - gironde - less than 20 minutes from bordeaux

An 18th century chateau and its outbuildings dominating 9 ha of land,
4.5 ha of which are wine-producing vines less than 20 minutes from Bordeaux


On the foothills of the Garonne Valley, on the edge of the Entre-Deux-Mers region’s undulating landscapes. Bordeaux, a town classified as a World Heritage site by Unesco, and its train station are less than 20 minutes away; its airport is less than 30 minutes away. The town centre, shops and all amenities are but a few hundred metres away. In a setting combining vines, farmland, forest and housing.


Backing on to a little road on the periphery of a continuous plot of land, this property comprises several sections: an 18th century chateau (probably even older) spanning approx. 620 m²; outbuildings set out around the entrance porch way spanning approx. 200 m², part of which is converted into a holiday rental accommodation unit; farm buildings including a holiday rental accommodation unit spanning approx. 80 m² as well as barns and awnings covering more than 300 m². And lastly, a 230 m² house comprising three bedrooms. There are also stalls, a carpark and pavilions concealed in the woods forming part of the property’s 9 ha of land. It is accessed off a little road, by passing through a porch way which opens into a courtyard.

The chateau

The original construction dates from before the 18th century. The premises, previously used as a coaching inn, were completed at this time by a classical extension. The main, north-facing facade looks out over the vines. It features six bays aligned over two levels. The entrance in a projection, marked by a porch way and a sober pediment, features an old door with a knocker. This robust building is set out around a patio. The south facade runs alongside a little road. The building potentially comprises seven bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Ground floor
The vestibule, with its floor tiles laid in a chessboard pattern, includes an 18th century monumental stairway with three flights of stairs and wrought iron railings. A door on each intermediate landing opens into hall areas, providing access to the rear section. On the right-hand side is a small lounge, a dining room, with a brick fireplace, and a fitted kitchen, opening on to the patio with its stone fireplace. Gironde stone tiles cover the floors. At the back are a scullery and a boiler room opening into the outbuilding. On the left-hand side of the vestibule is a dining room, still with its cast iron “potager” (a secondary hearth where soups and other previously prepared dishes are cooked on embers), terracotta floor tiles and its 18th century moulded panelling. Next, a library, with parquet flooring, wall panelling and a marble fireplace, leads to the east facade. Here, there is a chapel with its sacristy, the decoration of which has not been touched for decades.
First floor
This floor is separated into two half levels. A first half level, reached from the large stairway, provides access to three bedrooms and two bathrooms via corridors and independent stairways. The ground floor can be reached directly, the rooms have old doors, parquet flooring and fireplace. Forming the north-west corner of the building, the master bedroom opens directly on to the main landing. A hall area, with terracotta floor tiles, on the other side of the landing leads to a bedroom, a recent bathroom and a large bedroom with parquet flooring. Following the latter, a large bedroom adjoins a section awaiting renovation comprising a bedroom, a room and a separate toilet with a direct access.
Adjoining the main building and reached via a separate entrance, a first wing flanks the entrance porch way. The vestibule, with its superb contemporary wooden stairway, leads to a room, spanning approx. 60 m², which opens on to the porch way awaiting conversion. An upstairs room, with a sloping ceiling and spanning approx. 50 m² of living space, awaits conversion.
On the other side of the porch way is a holiday rental accommodation unit, spanning approx. 80 m² of living space over two levels. It comprises a lounge, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The barns

A series of barns, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 240 m² as well as 150 m² covered by awnings, form a vast courtyard. The roofing frameworks are exposed and all are in a good state of repair. A large door opens on to the vines.

The 3-bedroom holiday rental accommodation unit

The facade of this small house adjoining the barns stands out from the rest. Opening on to a private patio on the south side, it comprises a lounge, a kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms with toilets. It is in need of attention throughout.

The house

An old barn was transformed into a house, spanning approx. 235 m², during recent, meticulously carried out renovation works. The ground floor comprises a large lounge-kitchen, spanning approx. 100 m², which opens into a hunting room with a fireplace. Upstairs are three bedrooms and two shower rooms. One of the bedrooms opens on to a private terrace fitted with a Jacuzzi.

The stalls

A set of garages and closed stalls, spanning approx. 300 m², are laid out below the property.

The garden

The house stands on the highest point of the land. The main terrace includes a ha-ha making it possible to play with the land’s natural slope. This feature cleverly conceals the stalls and garages as well as a carpark laid out on a lower level. Near to the house, a wooded area planted with tall trees harbours some surprising constructions. The view from the terrace extends towards Bordeaux for more than 15 km.

The vineyard

The vineyard is operated over 4.6 ha.
14.85% of the argilo-calcareous soil is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon stock and 85.15% with Merlot stock.
Average age of the vine stock: 35 years old and over: 30.57%; 25 years old: 49.72 %; 10 years old: 19.71%.
Density of the plantations:
3,000 stock/ha: 30.57%
4,100 stock/ha: 19.32%
5,000 stock/ha: 30.40%
5,500 stock/ha: 19.70%
Annual production of 300 hl per year which is approx. 34,000 bottles.
The wine-making is carried out under contract by a wine co-operative.

Our opinion

This residence, despite being at least two centuries old and very probably a lot more, has been perfectly preserved. Its numerous outbuildings and the way in which they are laid out like a small hamlet would make it possible to create more than 16 bedrooms spread throughout these buildings. This considerable potential adds spice to the prospect of living as the owner of a chateau in the midst of its vines, a rare, improbable and precious combination that newcomers can savour just a short distance from the centre of Aquitaine’s county town.
