A château above a village,
in Cévennes
Anduze, LOZERE languedoc-roussillon 30140 FR

Location

In the Cévennes, some 70 kilometres from Nîmes and about a hundred from Montpellier and the sea, in the national park and close to the Unesco world heritage area. This area is known for its outstanding natural beauty, its shale valleys and its chestnut groves. The area has a Mediterranean climate.
This property is in a village with shops and main services.

Description

On the edge of the village, in fact just above it, in partially walled grounds of some 3 hectares with copses and woods, meadows and very old trees.
Two vehicle entrances with gates and a third pedestrian entrance from the village.

The château

The château comprises three buildings flanked by three round towers with shale walls and slate roofs, which, along with an early 14th century keep and a wall of the chapel form a closed courtyard.
On the courtyard side, a new entrance with mullioned windows was added to the central body in the 19th century.
The building, which boasts a surface area of 637m² over three levels, has been completely restored in understated, contemporary hues. The distribution of the rooms is mostly original.
One part (310m²) has been turned into 4 independent apartments with terraces, fitted kitchens and bathrooms.
The main accommodation (approx. 330m²) is spread over two wings, two towers and two levels, with access to the garden via the terrace.
Both façades, flanked by round towers lead onto terraces with ponds and overlook the village and the surrounding countryside.

The ground floor, formerly vaulted kitchens, overlooks the village. Today, it comprises an independent flat of some 100m² divided into 5 rooms with fireplaces, plus a bathroom.

Upstairs, the current owners’ apartment covers two wings and two levels, with a total surface area of 330m². From the hallway, a flight of stairs and three large rooms of 31, 43 and 60m² including one with a vaulted ceiling, which opens onto a patio and the garden beyond. On the upper floor there are three bedrooms and two other rooms. The bathrooms are in the towers.

The third building comprises a three-room apartment, with a fitted kitchen, a fireplace and a bathroom on each of the three floors (75m², 70m² and 60m² respectively). Independent entrances and balconies, including one with a panoramic view over the central building.

The outbuildings

Alongside the main driveway is a little house with two floors. The roof and the interior are in need of restoration.
Just before the courtyard, on the left, there are storerooms, stables and 18th century servants accommodation built on two floors. The ground floor has a vaulted ceiling. They also require restoration work.
A chapel, refurbished in the 19th century, is adjacent to the facade by the original keep with its lookout terrace.
A building permit has already been granted for the conversion of the various outbuildings.

Our opinion

The building is one of the most important châteaux in Cévennes and from the outside, it has unrivalled charm. In a tourist region with endless possibilities, it is the ideal base for excursions and hikes and could be used for a tourist activity or be reserved for private use. The outbuildings could also be restored.
