Between the Loire and Saône rivers, the Upper Beaujolais is a middle-mountain region that borders and looks down on a famous vineyard. The textile industry and farming coexisted for four centuries, durably marking the land as regards its landscapes and its way of living. Once renowned for its cotton blankets and its Toile-de-Vichy linen, Upper Beaujolais is currently developing new activities linked to green tourism.
An hour from Lyon via the A89 motorway, 1½ hours from a TGV train station with 2-hour links to Paris and 3-hour links toe Geneva.
This chateau spans two levels topped with an attic floor. The classical facade is rendered and symmetrical. The roof, featuring two shed dormers and red brick chimney stacks, is covered with new grey slate tiles. A second pink granite stone and brick building was adjoined to the rear of the original chateau in the 19th century.
The caretaker’s cottage and the orangery
The exposed stone and brick caretaker’s cottage spans three levels. Constructed on the edge of the property, it has a separate entrance. The former orangery, on the garden level, looks out over the parklands. Currently in use as a garage, its frontage is glazed.
This caretaker’s cottage, spanning 120 m² of living space, is in need of renovation works. It could then accommodate an entire family.
The outhouse dwellings
The living space in the outhouses was recently renovated and converted into two dwellings. One, spanning approx. 120 m², comprises a kitchen, a lounge, two bedrooms, both still with their old fireplaces, a shower room and a toilet. The other small dwelling, spans approx. 65 m². It comprises a superb kitchen-lounge, a bedroom and a bathroom. Residents are guaranteed independence courtesy of a small garden and a separate entrance via the outside of the parklands.
The outbuildings and the equestrian facilities
The large stone outbuilding spans two levels. Semi-circular arched carriage doors on the ground floor open into the old stables, four horse loose boxes as well as a treatment room and a tack room. The 260 m² hayloft upstairs communicates with the large garage, used for farm machinery, which opens on to the outside.
Several garages, workshops and a fabulous wine cellar are also part of the chateau’s outbuildings.
In the grasslands are four shelters and a 20x40 m, silica sand riding arena which complete the equestrian facilities. The lake at the bottom of the valley makes this setting even more pastoral.
The Upper Beaujolais mountains, beautiful without being rugged, appeal to nature lovers and hikers alike. It is possible to breathe in these forests; far from the pollution of the towns, and yet near to their activities. The region has such character that several museums are dedicated notably to its economic history. This is a property where horses rule. And residents much appreciate the spaciousness of the estate and the buildings with three centuries of architecture gazing down on them.
